As senior project manager, Gray has successfully led a multi-disciplinary virtual team to move the study for Lewisville Dam Safety Modification and construction for that project forward through all reviews and milestones.

Because of her dedication and foresight to help shape and grow her career field, Gray voluntarily mentors new civil works project managers and her team members on dam safety management processes and project delivery business processes.
