Kadee Jankowski is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee studying civil engineering with a focus on work in municipal. Kate works full time as a municipal engineer for raSmith. She gets to perform sewer entries, flood neighborhoods with bright green water, and test stormwater discharge points for contaminants!

Kadee was trained as a University Innovation Fellow in Fall of 2018. She attended the Dubai meetup in Spring of 2019. During her time in school, she was part of a team that is worked to renovate a not commonly used room within the engineering building into a Thinkerspace. The room is located adjacent to the Makerspace so UWM transformed room to be more versatile room to benefit students. The UWM UIF’s added a study nook, a presentation area, and a workspace that can be used for the prototyping of projects.She also worked to make a lightbulb structure for the grand opening of the UWM Lubar Entrepreneurship Center.  It ended up being a creative piece to accent the building.

While not working, Kadee spends her time singing with the Milwaukee Master Singers. She loves to rock climb and do yoga as a nice break from work. She has two cats (Snuggles & Sadie) who keep her busy while she’s home.
