Schroller receives San Antonio Women's Leadership Award
The San Antonio Business Journal recently recognized Garver’s South Texas Transportation Team Leader Aimee Schroller, PE, with a 2023 Women’s Leadership Award, which honors women who are leading the charge and making a significant impact on the Alamo City.
A San Antonio native who’s served Texas for nearly a quarter century, Schroller has built a career centered around serving her community through crafting innovative, essential transportation infrastructure that will uplift the region for decades to come.
“It’s such an honor to receive this award,” said Schroller. “I was drawn to transportation engineering because it offered a way to serve my community and impact people’s daily lives. And I’m grateful to work with a talented team that shares this passion.”
Schroller’s commitment to transportation infrastructure and to the San Antonio community has been a driving force of Garver’s success. Tasked with establishing a presence in San Antonio five years ago, she built a strong team from the ground up that now tackles some of the region’s biggest infrastructure challenges.
One testament to Schroller’s exemplary leadership is her long-standing relationship with the Texas Department of Transportation, which she’s spent her career cultivating. As a result, she’s had a hand in many major improvement projects throughout Texas, including the I-35 Northeast Expansion, a $2 billion flagship project that is currently under construction and will add 20 miles of elevated lanes across six cities and three counties.
“Aimee exemplifies what it means to be a true leader,” said Garver Texas Transportation Director Glenn Gregory, PE. “She’s the epitome of a team player, always finding new ways to support and lead her team and her clients. She also demonstrates fortitude in the face of obstacles and stays focused on long-term goals. And these are just a few of the qualities that have landed her in the leadership position she holds today.”
Not only has Schroller distinguished herself as a leader at Garver and in the AEC industry, but on a local level.
Schroller has served as the San Antonio committee leader for GarverGives, Garver’s corporate giving program, where she organizes and leads local community service events — from volunteering with the San Antonio Food Bank to building houses for Habitat for Humanity.
Recognizing that the future of the AEC industry lies with the next generation, Schroller is involved in Garver Launch, the firm's annual internship program, dedicates her time to programs promoting STEM education, and continues to support her alma mater the University of Texas at San Antonio through a regular sponsorship and donations. In addition, she has volunteered with Girls Inc. ROCKIT into the Future Science Festival and The Lemonade Circle STEM Summit, events focused on empowering young girls to explore a future in STEM-related careers.
While transportation engineering continues to be a male-dominated field, Schroller goes above and beyond to support female employees across the Garver’s footprint. A past leader within Garver Connect, an employee-led initiative dedicated to uplifting the firm’s women, she plans and facilitates quarterly lunch-and-learns for the San Antonio office to encourage discussion and networking.
From working with students of all ages to helping advance women in engineering, to volunteering to serving in professional organizations, to leading major infrastructure projects in her home state, Schroller has made a profound impact on Garver, the industry, and her community and will continue to do so for years to come.
