Jenny Bowers: One thing that few know about Jenny Bowers – Jenny was a young diplomat for the International Monetary Fund in the District in the early 90s. Her knowledge in multiple foreign languages and 5 other local dialects of the natives led her to successfully execute her role in the Asia-Pacific Region. To those who don’t know Jenny, Jenny has an out-going personality, her wit, and her approachable nature that most of us that know her would testify. She’s an “energizer bunny!” Full of energy and ideas. As a colleague, Jenny is reliable. She is known in our industry as a Go-Getter. An influencer. As a friend, Jenny is a kind of friend that answers the phone when you’re having one of the lowest moments of your life. She’s the kind of friend that pushes you to be a better person. Jenny is loyal, humble, and most importantly, honest and kind in nature. Jenny works for Michael Baker International and is our new ACEC/MW Program Committee Vice Chair.
