Cathleen T. Childers, PE
Cathleen (Cat) currently works as a Fire Protection Engineer at Cosentini Associates. Her journey to engineering began in 7th grade when she realized, she just really loved math. Cat is a proud graduate of University of Maryland. She attended a program called Exploring Engineering at the University of Maryland in high school and never looked back. Cat now splits her time between sprinkler design, fire alarm design, and code consulting with a specialty in health care.
Cat's ties with the Society of Fire Protection Engineers also run deep. Cat served as the President of the student chapter during her time at Maryland, and barely took a year off before joining the board of the NY Metro Chapter.
