Last month, the League of Railway Industry Women (LRIW) named Anamaria Bonilla "Outstanding Woman of the Year." She's spent the last 12 years working at MTA Metro-North Railroad, where she's spearheaded a slew of rail-safety initiatives, such as the RailAdvise® bridge management software. Bonilla currently serves as Metro-North's assistant chief engineer of track and structures.
A few weeks ago, I had the chance to chat with Bonilla about her career and her many accomplishments at the railroad. I also spoke with a few folks who nominated her for the award. To learn more about Bonilla, check out my recent article.
