31: Civil Engineer involved in Leadership and Sales – Dayna Johnson
Dayna Johnson earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering and a Masters of Engineering Management Degree from Valparaiso University and is currently working at GE Energy and part of the Accelerated Leadership Program (XLP). She is also heavily involved in the Society of Women Engineers SWE as Director of Achievement.
Dayna is involved in the sales process at GE energy and is really fired up about renewable power and her interest in Civil Engineering stemmed from a field trip where she was able to see how a sewage plant worked, and decided that was her path, and yes she does like rabbits!
In college she recommends finding a smart roommate and to become friends with others in your same major so when you have to do group projects, you know those whom would make good partners. Also in college she would encourage you to obtain some leadership skills, like being an officer in a club or society, like SWE. In your career she says to stay flexible so you can take opportunities that come your way.
Her favorite phone app is Audible and her recommended book is “Five Dysfunctions of a Team” by Patrick Lencioni.
