Dr. Lewis is an Assistant Professor of construction engineering at Oklahoma State
University (OSU). She has been involved in the construction industry for thirty years.
After graduating with a BS in Construction Management in 1991 from Oklahoma State
University, she worked for Brown & Root for ten years focusing primarily on refining
and petrochemical projects. In 2006, Amy completed her master’s degree at Texas State
University. For the next 6 years Amy worked in business development for the AEC industry
in the central Texas area. After working as a scheduling consultant for five years
in the Texas and west coast markets, Amy returned to Stillwater, Oklahoma to work
at Long Range Facilities Planning as a project manager.
After working in the construction business for more than three decades, Dr. Lewis
was curious as to why the industry was not recruiting and retaining more women. This
curiosity led to launching her research focusing on the obstacles women face in non-traditional
careers and what the construction industry can do to increase the inclusion of women
and other minorities. After completing her Ph.D. in Civil Engineering, Amy joined
the Construction Engineering Technology Program as an Assistant Professor in January
