Monte Stott

A licensed engineer in California since 1989, Monte Stott has performed the structural design of over 3,000 new builldings, renovations, additions, foundation repairs, seismic upgrades and other projects. Monte’s expertise covers the breadth of modern construction methods including wood, reinforced concrete, cmu blocks, steel, sips panels, unreinforced masonry and brick.

Prior to founding Monte Stott & Associates, Monte served on a diverse range of engineering assignments such as the Hubble space telescope (with Lockheed), post-tensioned bridges (with the Swedish Department of Transportation), and a nuclear waste processing facility (with Bechtel). A younger and more fit (though more sleep deprived) Monte was also a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy Seabees.

In his spare time, Monte coaches youth baseball teams.

Josefine Ohlsson 

Josefine has been working for Monte since June 2018. She is originally from the very south of Sweden, so called Potato Land (by Monte), and moved to Gothenburg to do her bachelor in Civil Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology. She plans to take a master in Structural Engineering at location to be determined. When she is not interning for Monte, Josefine is usually swimming, running, or hanging out at a bookstore, cafe, or a live music venue with her crew of German occupational therapists.

Xuan Anh Tran

Xuan Anh has been an intern for Monte since December 2018. She is from Danang, which is the most beautiful beach city in Vietnam. She graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture from Danang University of Technology. Xuan Anh loves travel and architecture, the big reason bringing her here to the US or wherever she goes, to learn and gain experiences. She enjoys the weather in the Bay area, hanging out with friends, and seeing live music at local venues.

Michelle Fransson 

Michelle has been working as an intern at Monte Stott and Associates since January 2019 and just before the summer completed her bachelors in Mechanical Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. She loves being a SF local and exploring the city by foot, sometimes she just takes a walk to be able to see the typical SF houses and the lovely views. She loves to travel and explore and is currently planning trips within the U.S. such as New York, Yosemite and Yellowstone! Before heading back to her master studies in Sweden, she is planning a trip to Peru to hike the Inca trail and to see the famous Machu Picchu.
