Cate Thompson is the North FL Regional Engineer for Advanced Drainage Systems (ADS) and lives in Jacksonville Beach, FL with her husband Billy and 1-year-old daughter Quinn.

She began her career as a Project Engineer focusing on residential structural & geotechnical design for 4 years and shifted gears to the drainage side of the industry when she started with ADS 8 years ago.
