Natalie Bockhorst, also referred to as Tali B, is a fifth year senior in the

architectural engineering program at The Pennsylvania State University. In May 2012 she will graduate with her B.A.E. with a focus on Construction Management. She actively participates in the Student Society of Architectural Engineers (SSAE) as a mentor member and house head. She has climbed the ranks of the Penn State Student Chapter of the Design Build Institute of America (DBIA), serving as the Vice President and the President during her final two years at Penn State. Due to her accomplishments during her fourth year she was awarded the Hettema Leadership Award. She also is a member in The Student Partnership for Achieving Construction Excellence (S:PACE), Women in Engineering Program (WEP), and Society of Women Engineers (SWE).


Tali spent the summer of 2011 in Fairfax, Virginia, with Balfour Beatty

Construction as a purchasing and estimating intern. She learned valuable skills in the preconstruction field that helped further her education. Many of the tasks she completed included mentoring subcontractors, performing take-offs, compiling

estimates, and partaking in several bid-days. Tali proved to be a great team

player and always up for a challenge.


Although very involved with academics, Tali does find time for her self. She

enjoys cooking, baking, cross-stitching, and playing sports.
