Project Manager, Pre-Construction Services.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT BEING PART OF THE SCOTT BUILDERS TEAM?
It is the team that brings it all together for me. If you don’t enjoy the people you work with, you won’t enjoy your job very much. Scott Builders is a company that follows through with the promises of work-life balance; they understand and respect the give-and-take both a business and personal life require. Scott Builders shows care for their people, the well-being of our families, and the community around us.
WHAT INITIALLY DREW YOU TO THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY & WHAT MADE YOU STAY?
Starting in my family’s business pointed me down the construction industry career path. I started by getting my electrician apprenticeship and growing in my role in the business. From there I expanded to learn estimating and design-build scopes, and I realized I enjoyed the pre-construction phase of projects. Rounding out my skillset over the years with Scott Builders, I’ve embraced my current role as Project Manager for Pre-Construction.
I thoroughly enjoy the early stages of the projects, estimating, customer relations, and working with the team to improve our processes. Working with the team to identify potential risks and utilize early mitigation practices along the way makes every project different and drives my desire to stay in this industry.
WHEN YOU’RE NOT HARD AT WORK, WHERE CAN WE FIND YOU?
When I’m not working, you can usually find me with my family. Coaching my kids in all their athletic endeavours and regularly travelling to BC to visit with family. I also enjoy running and am currently training to run a ½ marathon this year.
SOMEONE YOU ADMIRE? (OR YOUR HERO)
My father and uncle, whom I worked with within the family business. They showed me that when you work hard, results will follow. They taught me to always be ready to grow and expand your skillset, and you’ll be better equipped to overcome any issue that comes your way.
WORDS YOU LIVE BY: (FAVOURITE QUOTE OR LIFE PHILOSOPHY)
“Lead by example!” I consistently try to inspire those around me and work collaboratively to reach common goals. I truly believe you can not ask others to do something you are not willing to do yourself.
