RLG has amazing employees in its ranks: from industry influencers, travelers, marathon runners, animal lovers, and community leaders. The Employee Spotlight highlights the talented individuals who work here. Each week, we’ll be featuring an interview here on the blog and on our social accounts.
For this week’s Employee Spotlight, we spoke with Meagan Weaver. Here at RLG, Meagan is an Engineer on the Structural Team.
I am originally from Canyon in the Texas Panhandle. I went to Texas Tech where I graduated with my BS in Civil Engineering and was a member of the Goin’ Band from Raiderland. I married my husband, Alex, last year and we have a sweet rat terrier named Prince. I enjoy cooking and trying new foods, playing clarinet in community band, watching college football and basketball, crocheting, and spending time with my husband.
How long have you been at RLG?
In January I will have been here for 3 years.
How did you hear about RLG? Why did you want to work here?
I heard about RLG through the job fair at school. RLG felt like a good fit, where I would be able to work on a variety of buildings and have plenty of opportunities to learn and grow.
What is the most challenging project you've worked on during your time here so far?
Weir’s Plaza has been the most challenging project I have worked on here, due to the size of the project, as well as the coordination challenges presented. It is an office tower with underground parking, and it has given me the opportunity to expand my design skills and improve my ability to adapt to changes.
What’s the most important thing you’ve learned at RLG?
I have learned to not be afraid to ask questions. I am always learning from my coworkers, and in turn I am able to share my knowledge with others. Everyone benefits when people are willing to ask questions and openly communicate.
What’s your favorite thing about working in your Department here?
I enjoy the camaraderie here, as well as everyone’s willingness to help others learn and succeed.
What's the first thing that you do when you start working every day?
I always start my day with some breakfast. I usually just have some type of oatmeal bar. It is just what I need to feel ready for the day.
What’s your workspace like? Minimalist? Homey? Neat?
I try to keep my workspace neat, but it sometimes gets a little messy. I rely on my planner and post-it notes to keep myself organized.
Do you have a go-to sound or song that you listen to when you need to just start working?
I enjoy listening to podcasts while working. It’s a good way for me to enjoy some of my interests, and I feel more in the zone when I’m listening to them.
If RLG announced a last-minute day off for tomorrow, what would you do with your suddenly free day?
I would take the opportunity to get some extra sleep. Then I would probably just enjoy a lazy day and watch a movie or play some games.
What would you do if you weren’t working at RLG?
If I were not working at RLG or in engineering, I would probably become a band director. I loved my experiences in band, and I even taught clarinet lessons while in college. I still play in community band, so it is a big part of my life, and I would enjoy sharing that source of joy with others.
