Born and raised in Belarus, Dasha moved to Alaska with her family when she was 18. She enjoys the creative process of working with her hands and wants to see her work benefit other people – so Dasha followed in both her parent’s footsteps and pursued a career in civil engineering.
When she isn’t helping our Portland transportation group to create safe, practical designs, Dasha likes to dabble in woodworking.
