Project Manager | Design Technician

Lisa Amen lived in Kansas and Colorado before settling closer to her husband’s hometown in south central Nebraska. She has a nearly 20-year career in civil drafting and uses her client and subcontractor communications skills to manage projects as well as support with civil engineering work. Lisa became a fan of BD Construction after witnessing the company’s dedication to building long-term relationships with clients and its commitment to giving back to communities.

Lisa brings diversified experience to her role and loves being able to provide clients with drawings so they can better visualize the end project. She earned her degree from the Northwest Kansas Technical College and has honed her skill working on a variety of projects. She has a commitment to being precise in her drawings and assisting clients to create the best possible plans for their project.

With a young son, Layton, Lisa’s free time is sparse. She and her husband Shelby enjoy spending time with their son and especially taking him to watch his favorite thing—race cars. The family also enjoys fishing and going on walks with their two cocker spaniels.
