Mika brings a fresh and new perspective to technology consulting through her studies in civil engineering. Her course studies include construction, steel, and concrete design, water and wastewater distribution design, and AutoCAD and Revit training. Through courses like these, she is able to apply her classroom studies to Vantage projects and designs.

She has experience in lecture capture technologies and digital media distribution and is able to provide insight on how to design these systems to be user friendly and durable for constant classroom use.

Recently, she was a part of the USC American Society of Civil Engineers team in the Pacific Southwest Conference. She helped design and develop the lightweight material used on the concrete canoe, helping her team finish 8th in the canoeing event. Other events included geotechnical engineering, environmental design, steel bridge design, and technical thesis submission. While one of the smallest teams at the competition, Mika and her teammates placed third among the 18 competing schools.

Mika holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of Southern California and is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers.
