WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT BEING PART OF THE SCOTT BUILDERS TEAM?
I love the atmosphere and company culture that comes with being a member of the Scott Builders Team. The company has always supported their employees and actively promotes flexibility, understanding of family life, and work-life balance across all roles.
WHAT INITIALLY DREW YOU TO THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY & WHAT MADE YOU STAY?
I distinctly remember walking by a construction site when I was in high school and thought it seemed really interesting. This curiosity drove my decision to attend college, which further fed my interest. Estimating was my favourite course and where I excelled the most. Also, and interesting enough, I found out that my grandmother was an estimator as well.
WHEN YOU’RE NOT HARD AT WORK, WHERE CAN WE FIND YOU?
When I’m not working away on a project, you can find me at home with my family or camping every chance we get in the summer. During the winter months, I love my Peloton and enjoy the outlet exercise gives me.
SOMEONE YOU ADMIRE? (OR YOUR HERO)
I carry a great deal of admiration for my grandmother. As a woman in construction during her career, she started a construction company and didn’t let any bias affect her.
