AboutWomen in Restoration & Engineering
WiRE’s mission is encouraging and empowering women in the restoration, engineering, design, construction, management, ownership, material support, conservation, environmental or any field relevant to the Built World (everyone is welcome)!
Amy Lamb Woods
Amy loves historic preservation and materials, especially anything that has cement or pozzolan components! She enjoys volleyball, football, baseball, golf, pickleball, and taking her Alaskan Malamute pup out on dog sledding excursions.
Director and Secretary
Carly is happiest while analyzing brick and mortar, hiking in the forest, or dancing in the kitchen to 90’s pop music. She is passionate about creating a welcoming environment in the construction field for women to thrive. When not chasing her two toddlers, she loves to camp and watch football.
Amanda is passionate about art and puzzles, throw in a bit of mathematical aptitude and you get a structural engineer who loves buildings. When she’s not chasing her grown sons around the country, she spends time walking her two dogs downtown so they can appreciate the built world too.
Vanessa loves the smell of freshly poured concrete in the morning. She enjoys repairing existing buildings, making them safe, and keeping them dry. When she is not working on buildings she enjoys renovating homes while preserving their historic architectural characteristics.
Arden (Hach) Lawler
Next Generation Leader
Arden follows her mommy’s “bootsteps” and represents the third generation of female concrete restoration contractors. When she is not excelling at math in kindergarten she’s swinging an air hammer or golf clubs.
