Her job title doesn’t convey the scope of current or future responsibilities for Caitlin “Kate” McGee ’05.
As the new health and safety coordinator for Pennoni Associates, an Engineering News-Record Top 100 engineering and design consulting firm, McGee leads the 11-member health and safety committee as she coordinates initiatives for nearly 1,000 employees in 28 offices in eight states. From her base in Philadelphia, she oversees training, technical writing, and inspections.
“The diverse education I received at Lafayette helped me develop my communication skills across multiple audiences, which is an essential part of my current position,” says the biology graduate. “I’m thankful to many professors for their attention and encouragement.” She adds that the lessons she learned as a member of Delta Delta Delta sorority are “innumerable and invaluable.”
McGee is slated to become Pennoni’s radiation safety officer, managing roughly 40 employees and equipment in three offices.
In her previous position as project manager at TTI Environmental Inc., a consulting firm in Moorestown, N.J., McGee discovered her interest in the health and safety field.
