Snell’s newest Structural Engineer, Katie O’Neill, is a recent graduate of Cornell University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Civil/Structural Engineering.

Outside of work, Ms. O’Neill enjoys music, art, cooking and traveling. At Cornell, she led a 15-member a cappella group and was section leader of the university chorus. She harnesses her creativity within her work, allowing her to approach engineering problems with ingenuity. Ms. O’Neill looks forward to growth in her role at Snell, as the prominent local firm will afford her exposure to a wide range of projects and diverse responsibilities.
