Woman-Owned Engineering Firm...

Entrepreneurship was never in Nisha Powers’ plans.  Armed with a degree in civil engineering, Powers moved to Memphis in 1997 and followed a traditional post-college path: She sought and landed a job at one of the state’s top firms in her field. But after eight years in one small office, she was ready to explore new territory.  “Because it was not the corporate office but a branch office, I learned a lot and probably progressed faster than if I’d been in an office with 200 people,” Powers said.  “I got to be involved not just in engineering but in the business end of things. I really had the best of all worlds in that sense.”  So when a loyal client suggested she consider opening her own boutique firm, Powers was at first hesitant to leave her comfort zone.
