That CAD Girl
Jennifer DiBona is a long-time CAD consultant and trainer doing business as That CAD Girl. She is based in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Jennifer has a degree in Surveying and worked in various consulting offices for approximately 15 years. After her time working as a designer and drafter, she then worked for an Autodesk reseller as a Civil 3d Implementation Certified Expert (ICE) and built their technical services division from the ground up.

Jennifer is one of the charter members of Carlson College which is the certified program for authorized Carlson Software trainers and she also wrote the “CAD Picks and Clicks” column for Professional Surveyor Magazine.

Jennifer is a member of the Steering Committee for Version 6 of the National CAD Standard®, serves as Chair of the Survey/Civil Task Team and co-Chair of the CAD Layer Guidelines Task Team.
