With 14 years of industry experience, Julie Goodwin has moved up from a recruit with a bachelor's degree in architectural engineering from Penn State University to a senior associate and a LEED expert in the WSP San Francisco office. Her award-winning projects regularly achieve high sustainability ratings. One example is the LEED-Platinum Conrad N. Hilton Foundation in Agoura Hills, Calif., which is targeting net-zero certification through features such as passive ventilation. ENR California selected the Hilton Foundation as its 2013 Project of the Year for Southern California. Among her many responsibilities, Goodwin establishes and enhances internal processes and procedures, mentors younger staff, participates in charitable efforts and helps associates extend their professional knowledge. Her volunteer work includes introducing high school students to architecture, engineering and construction careers, including through the ACE Mentor Program.
