Cindy Carlson


Client Sector Practice Manager
In her first and only landscape architecture class, Cindy was told her lines were too straight. Those words would stick with her, and lucky for us, they steered her towards engineering. One of the first females named principal at Henderson Cindy has undoubtedly left her mark on our firm.

She currently helps lead a team of 70 specializing mostly in retail and grocery programs. A strong leader, Cindy has never been shy in recommending what she believes is the correct approach to a project, even if it’s not the easiest route – and count on her to have a well-thought-out reason to back it up. In her downtime, Cindy loves to garden but admits she makes a better engineer than a landscape designer. We beg to differ after checking out her paradise of a backyard.
