Raine serves as operations leader for the firm’s Public Works West region and is a member of MSA’s board of directors. Based in Baraboo, she has over 17 years of industry experience specializing in public work infrastructure as well as parks and recreation development. With a background in municipal and transportation engineering, Raine helps governments and municipalities plan, design and construct various infrastructure systems.
Roadway and utility design, park and recreational design and development, waterfront experience, grant administration, permitting and construction are among Raine’s long list of offerings to our clients. She worked to complete several projects in Lake Delton, Wis., such as the reconstruction of Canyon Road which involved utility design, right-of-way acquisition, steep topography and construction challenges — a project that was, and still is — a highlight within the community.
Raine continues to enhance her expertise through active leadership in our Parks and Recreation Community of Practice (CoP). This group of professionals gather and share knowledge about park and recreational projects and applications. By sharing information about best practices between professionals, the group is able to provide excellent park, trail and waterfront development on all related projects. Some of Raine’s park and recreation projects include Erb Park and Pool in Appleton, Wis., Riverside Park in Mauston, Wis., Town of Rome’s Splashpad Project in Rome, Wis., and Newport Park in Lake Delton, Wis., located on the Wisconsin River. Meeting clients’ needs and desires for these types of projects are challenges she enjoys as they return beneficial, long-lasting rewards to the communities in which they are developed.
Raine holds both a B.S. in civil engineering from Michigan Technological University and an M.S. in civil engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She is a licensed professional engineer in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan and Iowa—as well as a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, Wisconsin Parks and Recreation Association and National Recreation and Parks Association.
