2019 Women in Construction: Taquana Peters, MEP Junior Estimator/Quality Engineer at Erland Construction, Inc.

March 29, 2019 - Spotlights

How many years have you been in your current field? 3

What were your biggest fears when you started out in your profession? My construction experience began as a field/project engineer at the Dearborn STEM Academy. One of my biggest fears was entering a predominately male dominated industry as a young woman. Much to my surprise, there were so many women working on this project! I was mentored by two amazing women in the field office and had the opportunity to interact with a diverse group of hardworking tradeswomen. Jumping into my fears motivated me to continue paving pathways for future generations of women in the industry. I am proud to actively participate in women challenging the notion of “men at work.”
