Mikaela Ruef’s Story

Mikaela Ruef attends Stanford University, where she is earning a master’s degree in civil and environmental engineering. Mikaela started working for Preston Pipelines in April of 2013 as a Project Engineer Intern. Through the summer she was attending classes, working 30 hours a week and playing for the Stanford Cardinal woman’s basketball team. Ruef plans to continue working for Preston Pipelines through her last and final quarter this winter, “I really enjoy the people I work with, I want to stay as long as possible” said Ruef.

“…seeing things hands on helps me learn a lot. I love being able to see the actual work from beginning to end!”

 

Mikaela is currently working on the Stanford Energy System Innovation (SESI) project located at Stanford University. It’s a convenient commute for Ruef as she can easily walk from school to work and back. “It’s awesome to be so close to all the work sites. When I first started I didn’t know anything regarding construction, seeing things hands on helps me learn a lot. I love being able to see the actual work from beginning to end!” said Ruef.
