Transportation Designer I

  • What are some of your hobbies?

    I love DIY, decorating my house, and going for long walks along the Delaware River with my puppy, Nisha.

    I've always dreamed of touring Iceland.

  • What's something you'd like to learn?

    I'd love to learn how to woodwork. Designing and building furniture seems like a fun challenge.


Sarah knew she wanted to join the McCormick Taylor team while visiting our table at Rowan University’s career fair in her junior year. After an interview, which felt more like a conversation, she accepted an internship that turned into a full-time position.


“Throughout my time as an intern and a new professional, I have been trusted with responsibilities and tasks that are vital to projects. Sometimes entry-level employees often get stuck with busy work, but that was never the case with my workload. I’ve always appreciated how much McCormick Taylor values my knowledge and skills,” said Sarah.


When asked what makes working at McCormick Taylor unique, Sarah noted the collaborative work environment and strong emphasis on culture, describing the company as a family environment.


“I never feel like I am on my own," said Sarah. "I always have coworkers to rely on if I need help or guidance. That collaborative experience is invaluable.”


Sarah is currently putting the finishing touches on a gas main relocation design of over 18,000 linear feet. When she first started the project, she was intimidated by its complexity but has learned so much throughout the process. Her recent work also includes vertical utility conflict identification and design. She created a spreadsheet to identify conflicts, automate the design process, and output a presentable document to clients.


In her free time, Sarah can be found at home with her new puppy, Nisha, a rescue from Georgia. Sarah is an advocate for “Adopt, Don’t Shop” and has fostered dogs in the past while they wait for their “furever” homes.


“I’d like to foster again when I have a little more free time. It’s so rewarding giving animals in need good and loving homes,” said Sarah.
