“The projects I find the most rewarding are those that give our staff the opportunity to grow professionally while developing a strong working relationship with our clients. I enjoy projects that result in finding solutions to the problems our clients face, improving the efficiency of their operations, and in general making life easier for them. I also enjoy the freedom Woodard & Curran provides to develop long-lasting relationships with people and to roll up my sleeves and solve tough problems. This is an engineering company that owns our clients’ problems as our own and makes a commitment to solving them the right way the first time.”
