Starting out in the construction business, who or what empowered you? For me, it has always been being involved in projects that are changing the world around us. Schools for people to learn in, medical facilities for people to heal in, and offices for people to create new ideas in. The thought of this is so powerful to me, it really feels like we are building the future and it has always made me feel like anything is possible.

What tips or advice would you offer to other women who are considering entering the construction industry? Learn everything you can and never stop asking questions. Be humble and not afraid to ask about something you don’t have experience with. We all have different exposure to various projects as well as our own individual strengths, use that experience to build upon what you already know. And once you get that confidence – hold true to it. Don’t be afraid to stand your ground and always come prepared with the details and research you need to back your recommendations!

When you’re not busy, what is your go to book or podcast to help you unwind? I have been reading a lot lately, it’s a great way to unwind at the end of the day. Recently finished the Silent Patient and The Guest List – both are awesome reads if you are interested in thrillers/mystery books!
