What was your first position/job in the A/E/C Industry? Payroll clerk, administrative assistant, office manager, marketing coordinator, project engineer, project manager 

Why the A/E/C Industry? It found me while attending college. I stay because I find it fascinating. Deadlines. A plan. Construction. Success.

Keys to success: Work hard. Stay focused. Welcome the challenge. Always learn.

If you had to choose one word to explain why you do what you do, which one most suits you and why? Challenge. I crave the challenge to learn something new, to stay atop the industry strategies or technologies. It keeps the mind young.
