Mary Beth Herritt, Acting Aeronautics Chief

Mary Beth has begun her transition to the Division of Aeronautics from the Division of Design. Mary Beth graduated from CPSU San Luis Obispo with a BS in Civil Engineering. She began her Caltrans career in the Central Design Unit in Sacramento delivering projects from a variety of districts. To broaden her knowledge of the Department she took positions in the Divisions of Transportation Programming, Project and Program Management, and District 10. In District 10 she was a design senior responsible for providing oversight of the locally-implemented projects as well as other SHOPP projects. Mary Beth then transferred to the Division of Design, where she has worked for the past 19 years. Mary Beth also broadened her perspective by recently working in the Division of Right of Way and Land Surveys. For the last three years she has been responsible for the newly formed Office of Performance Management which enables the Design program to use performance management techniques to evaluate the effectiveness of its policies, standards and procedures. Mary Beth enjoys spending time with her husband, who recently retired from Caltrans, and her daughter, traveling, singing in her church choir, and reading mystery novels and books about US history.
