Evans studied construction engineering in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering and was an honors student.

“My ASU experience was truly something I will never forget,” she said. “I had the privilege of being a student within Barrett, The Honors College, which pushed me to be a global thinker.”

During her freshman year while she was coordinating a community service event for Advancing Women in Construction, Evans met a volunteer who recommended her as an intern to her first employer. She held the internship with this company throughout her time at ASU, and Evans then continued working with them upon graduation.  

“I spent the first several years of my career working for a commercial general contractor that specialized in gaming and hospitality as a project engineer,” Evans said. “In this role, I was able to work in well-known and historic locations with high-end clients such as Caesars Entertainment in Las Vegas, Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community in the greater Phoenix Area, and Carnival Cruise Line in Southern California.''

After five years with that first company, she was ready to take the next step and become a senior project engineer with Oltmans Construction Co. in Las Vegas. Evans says her career in construction continues to be exciting due to the ever-changing nature of the industry.
