Fuss & O’Neill has hired Lindsay Silcox as a Project Engineer for its Wastewater Department. She earns her degree in Civil Engineering from Central Connecticut State University this May when she will join her Fuss & O’Neill team full time. This marks a career change for Ms. Silcox, who earned a degree in Fine Arts in 2009 concentrating in sculpture and ceramics, with a minor in Art History and Russian Language. After a brief stint working as a farm hand in Virginia, Lindsay earned a position as the first Sustainability Coordinator for a major food service provider. There she developed educational programming and events dedicated to raising awareness about sustainability and healthy living, which turned into a passion for creative problem solving and protecting the environment.
