A Senior Project Designer at Humber Design Group, Jenai’s expertise is design utilizing visualization and computer software. She works directly with clients and team members to design projects including complete site layout, public road improvements and utility design, grading, cost estimating, and collaborating with clients and agencies to achieve efficient site design and permitting processing. Her diverse background and experience in the development industry have allowed Jenai to view the design work that she does through many facets. Whether operating a jackhammer and tying rebar while in college or doing daily construction inspections on-site where her desk was the bucket of an excavator or the convenient hood of a car, Jenai has been engrossed in the construction world and has enjoyed learning from every angle in the creation of a “place.” She has been involved specifically in civil engineering in a multitude of ways for nearly two decades.

As a civil designer, Jenai truly enjoys being part of the creation of ‘place.’ To see the fruition of beautiful and useful things and places that were once only in someone’s mind, or on her computer monitor, is extremely satisfying. Jenai also enjoys working with local municipalities, architects, and other project team members to create a place that transpires into a cost-effective reality that is enjoyed by people in the community.
In her personal time, Jenai enjoys hiking in the Columbia Gorge with her German Shepherd, reaping the sweet rewards of beekeeping, and dreaming about completing her dad’s 1947 mid-engine Mercury convertible.
