Jessica Miranda, P.E., Project Engineer, Kinney Engineering, LLC, Anchorage, Alaska
Miranda is a project engineer with Kinney
Engineering, LLC in Anchorage, Alaska. She received her bachelor’s degree in
Civil Engineering from the University of Alaska, Anchorage in 2003. She was the
program’s first graduate earning Honors in Civil Engineering.
Jessi started her engineering career
specializing in outdoor recreation design with Alaska State Parks. Here, she
was first exposed to designing for Alaska’s unique challenges including pile
design in seasonally frozen soils. After working her way from engineering
intern to project manager with Alaska State Parks, she ventured on to highway
design with Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities. There,
she had her hand in many projects by overseeing consultants and performing
in-house design work. She then furthered her career by jumping into the oil and
gas field where she led a pipeline lease compliance team with the Alaska State
Pipeline Coordinator’s Office. With this position, she realized her engineering
passion resided in highway design and traffic analysis. She desired to have a
more immediate and meaningful impact in Alaskan’s lives. In 2015, she began
working for Kinney Engineering, LLC, where she has assisted and led many
studies and designs. Her research includes roadside safety and railroad
crossing safety. She designed a solution for protecting the Trans-Alaskan
Pipeline System from errant fuel tanker trucks on the gravel-surfaced Dalton
Highway. She has designed roadway upgrades at existing railroad crossings and
led a number of railroad crossing diagnostic team studies in Alaska. From
these, she developed an understanding of the railroad crossing standards and
issues in Alaska, which were applied during the Fairbanks Road/Rail
When she is not doing engineering work,
she enjoys running, biking with her three kids and husband, and sewing.
Jeanne Bowie, P.E., Ph.D, PTOE, Senior Transportation Engineer, Kinney Engineering, LLC, Anchorage, Alaska
Jeanne Bowie is a transportation engineer with over 15 years of experience, working mostly in multimodal transportation safety and operational analysis. She began her first career with a bachelor of science degree in physics from the University of Maryland College Park, which she used to pursue a career in Research and Development at a manufacturing plant. Eventually, Jeanne went back to school and obtained a masters degree in civil engineering with an emphasis in transportation from Brigham Young University, worked for a few years in Florida doing transportation engineering, and went back to school one more time for a PhD in civil engineering from the University of Central Florida. She joined Kinney Engineering, LLC in Alaska in 2010 and currently leads the Traffic Analysis group for the company. She has been an active member in ITE throughout her engineering career, serving first in the leadership of the student chapters at both BYU and UCF and then on the board of the Central Florida Chapter before moving to Alaska in 2009. Jeanne was chosen as Anchorage Engineer of the Year for 2013. She is married and has 4 daughters.
