Kendall Slivka is a 5th year Architectural Engineering student at Penn State University. She will graduate in May 2012 with a focus on Construction Management. Miss Slivka has been a member of the Student Society of Architectural Engineers and Society of Women Engineers. She has held positions in the United States Green Building Council -Penn State Chapter -  and in Phi Sigma Rho, a national sorority of women in engineering. Through these organizations she has volunteered to help other young women in engineering and mentor those students considering Architectural Engineering.
Kendall has gained professional experience both on site and in the office.

In summer 2012 she interned for Holder Construction Company in Herndon, VA as an office engineer. During this three month internship she was immersed into the construction management field. Onsite she was a trade responsible engineer, and in the office she was able to assist with estimating and bid development. She was also exposed to the idea of a ‘paperless site’ and worked with the team to help make this goal a reality.

Miss Slivka has had an interest in construction since middle school and has always sought out opportunities to visit or observe the building process. She is actively pursuing a LEED Green Associate certificate and plans to take the Fundamentals of Engineering exam in spring ’13. Outside of academics, Kendall is involved in numerous intramural sports, and is an avid Penn State fan.  She is looking forward to graduation and is excited to get back to into the workforce.
