Kathryn Rieger, a Northport resident who works at Melville-based H2M architects + engineers, was recently recognized as a top Long Island professional under 30 years old.
The event, Celebrate Long Island’s Young Professionals 2014, was held by the Huntington Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, May 6, at the Crescent Beach Club in Bayville. It honors young professionals who have dedicated their efforts to achieving remarkable success on Long Island. The honorees are recognized as those who are committed to both their business and civic communities.
“I’m honored and thankful to be a ’30 Under 30’ recipient, and I’m excited to see what the future holds as a young professional at H2M,” Rieger said.
Rieger, 24, an accounting project manager with H2M, has been with the firm for over two years. She has taken on the responsibility of processing payroll and managing accounts payable and receivable.
For the last decade, Rieger and her family have worked closely with the Guide Dog Foundation. The foundation’s mission is to improve quality of life for the deaf, blind and those with special needs, providing guide dogs and guide dog training free of charge.
In working with the foundation, Rieger and her family have bred twelve Labrador Retriever litters in their family home, spending a bulk of their time preparing the puppies for their first years in dog training with the foundation.
Rieger is also a member of the Moxxie Network — a woman’s networking organization that supports and mentors the career advancement of young professional women in the business world. Network members are able to share resources, connections and experiences with one another to promote their respective career development.
Rieger holds a Bachelor of Science in Accountancy from Providence College.
