Brenda Schoenfeld

Manager - Transportation Services - Waukesha

Waukesha, WI

After starting my professional engineering career at Ayres and then spending decades at the Wisconsin DOT, I came back to Ayres to manage our Waukesha transportation group.

I use positive reinforcement and a gratitude leadership style to boost productivity and collaboration among my staff. I enjoy working with talented people and helping transform young engineers into well-respected leaders and project managers.

I worked for well over 20 years at WisDOT as a civil engineer, a project development supervisor, and a statewide consultant engineer. I've provided team leadership on the design and construction phases of urban, rural, freeway, and bridge projects, and I've worked with municipalities on funding, maintenance responsibilities, and project concerns. I've also provided construction oversight on multiple federally funded, locally sponsored roadway and bridge replacement projects through the local bridge, STP Urban, STP Rural, multimodal, and economic development programs.
