Employee Highlight: Selene Rodriguez

Today we are introducing you to another one of our Houston team members, Selene Rodriguez. Selene joined Scott + Reid as a Project Engineer in 2018 and we love having her bright, cheery personality on our team!
We asked Selene a few fun questions to get to know her:
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done? 
While attending school on the Central Coast of California, there was an F16 airplane on display behind a fence at the university, a group of my classmates and I decided to go see this airplane and take some up close and personal pictures, we jumped the fence and took the picture.  However, did not realized that there would be cameras, we all got in trouble, but in the end the professor in charge of the department said that we were not the only ones who had pulled that stunt.


Do you have any superstitions?
I wear my grandmother’s chain with me all the time. This chain has been in the family for 3 generations.


If you could go back to one historical event to witness it, what would it be and why?
There are so many events in history that I wish I could have witness, but I have always wondered how the Aztec’s built Tenochtitlan, this ancient city sits in a lake, which is presently Mexico City. It was during the big earthquake in 1986 that anthropologists discovered that the ancient city was still intact underneath Mexico City. Today people can view the top of the main pyramid in downtown Mexico City, the rest of this pyramid is still underground and while walking along some portions of downtown there is glass on the sidewalk that looks down into the rest of the pyramid. I have always wondered how they were able to carve volcanic rock to build this structure with the limited resources and the precision in which they built it.


Would you rather… never use your phone again or never use social media again?
Never use social media again, for sure!
