Casey Ching

As a Structural Engineer at Forell | Elsesser, Casey works on a variety of projects from the design of new buildings to the development of retrofit schemes for existing buildings.  She enjoys collaborating with Forell | Elsesser’s diverse team of engineers to develop innovative and cost-effective solutions to meet our client’s needs.  After personally seeing the devastation from the Christchurch earthquake, she strives to use her structural engineering expertise to make cities more resilient to potential earthquakes.

Casey received both her Bachelor’s and her Master’s degree from UC Berkeley.  Having an interest in the interdisciplinary nature of the A/E/C industry, she broadened her educational experience by taking courses in architecture and city planning.  As a graduate student, Casey was invited to be a teacher’s assistant for the upper-division structural engineering class which initiated her passion for teaching and mentorship.

Outside the office, Casey likes to explore the rich urban and natural landscape of the Bay Area. She enjoys hiking, traveling, visiting museums, and photography. During the evenings, she enjoys cooking with friends, playing board games, and winding down with a good book.
