Kellie Emery, EIT

Assistant Engineer

Kellie is a Assistant Engineer who joined the NorthStar team in 2021, right after earning her B.S. in Civil Engineering at California State University, Chico. Originally from Ukiah, she came to Chico in 2015 for her degree and stayed due to the beautiful environments like Bidwell Park and the wonderful relationships formed. One of the things Kellie loves about NorthStar is the cooperation amongst staff members across various departments and the supportive leadership who encourage learning and enhancing her skill sets in multiple specialties.

During her time at NorthStar, Kellie has learned to conceive, plan, and design projects based on physically built environment information. Her projects range from commercial driveways to MS4 analysis, and the creation and revision of compiled plan sets for site operations. She spends most of her time drafting in AutoCAD but also conducts site inspections for Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP) making sure work sites comply with federal and state stormwater regulations.

Kellie enjoys reading, traveling, and yoga. One day, she would like to visit Europe, Asia, and New Zealand. She loves to go on adventures and cannot help but notice the infrastructure which inspires her thoughts for future project solutions. Kellie describes herself as diligent, thoughtful, and dependable.
