Associate Spotlight – Daniela Malott, PE

Daniela Malott, Project Engineer at TAIT’s Santa Ana office, has been working with Viviana Sanchez to put together the TAIT Mentorship Program. This is a new program that will be rolled out for the Engineering Department to support career building.

The idea behind it is that it supports inclusion and involvement of all team members while creating a team oriented culture. This program will support the paring of junior staff (mentees) with experienced staff (mentors). It will provide employees with an opportunity to cultivate a professional relationship in which career growth and guidance is encouraged for both the mentor and the mentee. Daniela is another one of our outstanding associates earning this spotlight to showcase some fun facts about her background and personality:
