What was your greatest professional achievement or most notable project in the last 12 months? The Harvard Divinity School Swartz Hall renovation has been the largest and most challenging project I’ve been part of in my career. This project involves historic restoration of an existing building, complex structural modifications, and tie-in to a new ground-up multi-purpose building. I’ve been extremely lucky to be surrounded by a talented, supportive and hardworking team that I’ve learned so much from. It will be a great achievement turning it over to the Divinity School in 2021!
What are you most looking forward to post-pandemic? I’m excited to hug my friends and family! I had to cancel a trip to the National Parks with my family in 2020, and would love to reschedule that post-pandemic.
Starting out in the construction business, who or what empowered you? In my first few years at Shawmut, I quickly got involved with many different groups and communities throughout the company. I created relationships with peers and mentors that championed and encouraged me in my career. Forging relationships across your business and getting involved is crucial to feeling empowered and supported.
