CEEatGT alumna Lanelle Ezzard, CE '10, has been named one of ten 2014 New Faces of Civil Engineering by the American Society of Civil Engineers.
As a public assistance project officer, Ezzard worked with the Federal Emergency Management Agency on rebuilding efforts after Hurricane Sandy, spending nine months on Long Island, N.Y., working six days a week to restore the region and securing almost $4 million in disaster assistance grant funding. Ezzard also works closely with FEMA’s Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning Program and flood insurance studies, for which she has done hydrologic and hydraulic modeling in several Southeastern states to identify flooding risk.
Ezzard is a civil engineer in the water resources group at AECOM in Atlanta, GA. Also involved in her community, Ezzard volunteers to serve the homeless through Lazarus Ministries, and participates as a rider and fundraiser for Tour De Cure, a cycling event that benefits the American Diabetes Association. Ezzard is also a mentor at the Center for Education Integration Science, focusing on Math and Computing.
