Andrea earned a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania before heading west. Prior to joining GLY in 2020, she spent 12 years managing projects for Seattle’s leading healthcare providers, which continues to be her focus. A strong dedication to understanding client goals is paramount in Andrea’s approach to her role; this approach is what makes Andrea well-known for her time management, integrity, and discipline—qualities she also brings home with her as she coaches CrossFit and raises two busy children.
A licensed Structural Engineer whose background includes everything from heavy civil construction projects to mixed use developments, Kyle joined GLY in 2015 bringing seven years of experience designing concrete structures. He earned both a BS and MS in Civil Engineering from Montana State University-Bozeman and is a longtime volunteer in the ACE Mentor Program. Outside of the office, when he’s not on the golf course begging for mulligans and gimmes, Kyle and his better half, Holly, spend their time traveling or cycling—often combining the two if possible!

Brian spent his first six years in the industry working on civil, large commercial and Sound Transit projects, starting his career as a Project Engineer. When he joined GLY, he immediately dove into the Lincoln Square Expansion, one of GLY’s largest projects to-date, and found his true calling as a Superintendent. When he’s not working on projects that change city skylines, he and his wife, Laure, venture into the great outdoors. In between his fly fishing, skiing, and motorcycling adventures, he visits his family as much as possible in Central Oregon and Montana.
Meghan brings a background in educational administration and non-profits to her role as GLY’s DEI Manager. Prior to GLY, she spent two years as the Middle School Head at the Westside School in West Seattle. Before Westside, she spent almost 10 years at The Overlake School in Redmond. She’s excited to focus solely on equity work within the AEC industry, for which she says active listening and empathy building are key. A summa cum laude WSU grad with twin degrees in Sociology and in Leadership and Professional Studies, Meghan also holds a Masters in Nonprofit Leadership from Seattle University. She was raised on a cherry farm in Grandview, Washington but now loves her city of Seattle home where she and wife Allison enjoy parenting two young ones.
Jane is a proponent of the “work hard, play hard” mentality and enjoys balancing work with skiing—whether cheering on family during racing season, or creating her own adventures on slopes across the US. In her role at GLY, she keeps the talent rolling in and makes sure all facets of the HR spectrum are covered.

Andrew spent 14 years immersed in his original calling: Architecture. He found that the most enjoyable and rewarding moments occurred while collaborating with builders. Deciding to blend two passions together—design and construction—Andrew now leverages robust VDC tools to better understand, communicate, and help execute a project’s design intent. Simply put, he constructs the building virtually to iron out any wrinkles before it’s built in the field. Outside the office, Andrew can’t get enough of the mountains. The numbers speak for themselves. He’s made his way to the summit of Mount Rainier via 16 different routes!
