Jackie Vinkler, SE

Jackie Vinkler maintains a diverse and highly visible portfolio of structural engineering projects and trusted, long-term relationships with clients. She has more than 25 years of structural engineering experience, having completed building design and architecturally sensitive seismic retrofits for complex structures and buildings in healthcare, higher education, entertainment, hospitality, commercial, residential and cultural realms. She has also led teams of structural engineers to complete seismic evaluations of extensive building portfolios, as far reaching as the US State Department embassies and residential buildings overseas. Jackie is known for her levels of precision and a passion for meeting client deadlines and budgets. Her collaboration with high profile architectural counterparts has consistently produced creative structural design solutions which achieve the visions of project’s diverse constituencies, including designers, owners, and stakeholders.

Jackie is considered an expert in healthcare code and SB 1953 seismic compliance, a forte she regularly applies to prolong the effective use of existing facilities within California. Her strong relationship with OSHPD and involvement with the State of California’s Hospital Building Safety Board has allowed her to forge creative healthcare design solutions that gain acceptance by the state agency. Jackie frequently serves as an advisor to clients by providing peer review services or helping them develop strategies for their facilities and institutions that will strengthen their civic, educational, and healthcare-related missions. That advisory role extends into the community through her involvement on the Board of Directors for the Girl Scouts of America, San Gorgonio, California Council.
