Region 2

Whose house? Two’s house!

You’ve heard the expression - Location. Location. Location. In this case, it’s your location that determines where you belong within the SHPE familia. Region Two covers the Southwest and includes Alaska, Arizona, Hawaii, Southern California, and Southern Nevada.

Whose house? Two’s house!


  • Vice-President

    Leo Soto
    The Boeing Company

    I joined SHPE in 2006 as an undergraduate at Rutgers University. I joined for the opportunity to land the career of my dreams. What I immediately loved about SHPE was the Familia feeling of the organization. It was because of SHPE I was able to start my career at Boeing, where I currently serve as a Structure Design Responsible Engineering Authority. During my time at SHPE, I served as Chapter President at Rutgers University, Chapter President (and founder) of SHPE South Bay Los Angeles Professional Chapter, and now as RVP, where I represent the region to best serve their needs.

    Kenny Linares
    San Diego Professional

    My name is Kenny Linares. I am from the greatest city in California; Modesto. I am the proud son of two Mexican immigrants. I transferred to the University of California, Irvine (Zot Zot!) and graduated with my degree in Civil Engineering in 2019. I have been involved with SHPE since the spring of 2017. I was EVP of SHPE at UCI during the 2018-2019 school year, when we won 14 total awards, including the SHPE National Medium Chapter of the Year award. I now work for Turner Construction in their Special Projects Division in sunny San Diego. I love watching sports and I am a big Los Angeles sports fan (Lakers, Dodgers, Rams). I recently started playing golf and I enjoy traveling and eating food!
