Meet Holly Lauzon, EI – Structural Engineer & Book Lover

What drew you to Hoyle Tanner?

I was looking to stay in New England after graduation and get involved with bridge design. I liked that [Hoyle Tanner] had a couple of offices across New England and the variety of bridge projects the company has worked on.

What’s something invaluable you’ve learned here? (Please elaborate your answer)

In the eight months that I’ve been here, I have learned to never be afraid to ask for help. Growing up I know it was sometimes hard for me to ask for help when I was struggling with something, but in my time here I’ve seen how willing everyone around me is to help me no matter how big or small the question I have is. I’ve definitely seen that the more questions you ask, the more you’re going to learn.

What’s your favorite time of year to work at Hoyle Tanner & why?

My favorite time of year to work at Hoyle Tanner would have to be the fall, especially when I am out on construction sites a lot. The weather is really nice for spending long periods of time outside, and I’ve always loved looking at the fall foliage.

What’s the best thing that’s happened to you recently (this week, this month, this year)?

I went on my first cruise last May with one of my college roommates to the Bahamas.

How many different states have you lived in?

I’ve lived in three different states: Massachusetts, New York and New Hampshire.

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life what would it be?

Chicken parmesan with spaghetti and homemade garlic bread.

What kind of pet do you have & how did you choose to name it?

I have two orange tabby cats, their names are Dexter and Ringo. There’s not really a backstory to how they got their names, I just picked two names that seemed to fit them.

What is a fun or interesting fact about your hometown?

In the 1940s, Carver, Massachusetts produced more cranberries than any other town in the world.

What are three things still left on your bucket list.
  • Hike all 4,000 footers in New Hampshire
  • Travel to Europe
  • Take a roadtrip to visit all the National Parks
What characteristic do you admire most in others?

I admire people who are always true to themselves no matter what.

What did you want to be when you were growing up?

When I was younger I really wanted to be an architect for a while, but when I found out how much drawing was involved with architecture I really started to reconsider if that would be the right fit for me. I’m not always the most creative person, so instead I chose to do something that was similar which is how I ended up doing civil engineering.
