• Willing to work hard to help foster positive change in America’s cities, counties, and
regions
• Team-oriented

• Spanish fluency
• Project management experience, including direct client contact and coordination of
subconsultants, and other professionals, as needed during all stages of project development
• A law or design degree, in addition to a planning degree
• Graphics and visualization expertise
• Prior experience working in consulting and/or a general interest in learning the business end of consulting
