Andrew Nelson, PE
National Water Resources Leader

The love of the outdoors drew me to water resources engineering as a career. Growing up in a family that valued time outdoors, I wanted a job that allowed me to work outdoors, and water resources engineering was the perfect fit.  When not at work, my wife and I enjoy traveling, mountain biking, hiking with our dog, and cheering on our two daughters at their swim meets. At Westwood, I enjoy working with our talented water resources team to provide engineering solutions for solar, wind, and many other types of projects.
