Katie Baad, P.E.
Katie moved from Northern California to Los Angeles in 1995 to attend UCLA's undergraduate Engineering program. Just a few months before graduation, she began working as a receptionist supporting 3 staff members at the original C.W. Howe Associates location in Santa Monica. After graduating with a BS in Civil Engineering, she went on to obtain her Professional Engineering license in 2001. She is now licensed in California, Nevada, Arizona, Texas, Utah, Oregon, Idaho, Washington, Wyoming, Colorado and North Carolina.
In 2007 Katie became Carl's business partner and C. W. Howe Associates became C. W. Howe Partners Inc. Building the business has taught Katie that the most important ingredient for success is the team.
Living in the South Bay of Los Angeles, Katie thoroughly enjoys the sun, sand and friendly atmosphere in the beach cities. She teaches art bi-weekly to elementary and middle school students and loves to see their creativity blossom.
