With more than a decade of experience in bridge design and inspection, Rowley leads the structural engineering efforts for 11 structures on the Betsy Ross Interchange project in Philadelphia.

Additionally, Rowley serves as project manager for the Small Bridge Inspection Services program on behalf of the Allegheny County Department of Public Works (ACDPW). This project encompasses inspections and report preparation for more than 200 bridges that are under 20 feet in length. Key aspects of this role involve responding promptly to field-discovered issues and overseeing the assessment of load factor ratings to establish safe load-carrying capacities. Her responsibilities also include scheduling, coordination, invoicing, interacting with ACDPW personnel, and ensuring that deliverables comply with ACDPW quality standards and deadlines.
