WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT BEING PART OF THE SCOTT BUILDERS TEAM?
The People! We are all good people, and have chosen a challenging industry to work in. We all strive to overcome any obstacles together and in our way to ensure the successful completion of our projects. Rallying together and leveraging all our strengths makes for a team I am proud to be a part of.
WHAT INITIALLY DREW YOU TO THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY & WHAT MADE YOU STAY?
Construction I believe is one of the most challenging industries to be in – I love the strategy of it and the problem-solving. There is never a dull moment with new challenges to tackle, and different ways to improve what we produce. I love how it all comes together at the end of the project, when you have something tangible to see.
WHEN YOU’RE NOT HARD AT WORK, WHERE CAN WE FIND YOU?
I have two very active kids and love coaching them in all of their endeavours, be it hockey, ringette, softball, baseball, or basketball. When I have the time, I can be seen on the golf course trying to strengthen my game or reading all types of genres of books.
SOMEONE YOU ADMIRE? (OR YOUR HERO)
My university basketball coach had a really strong code of ethics and did not waver in anything. He had rules and if you broke them there were penalties, I.e. if you were late for practice, you’d miss a game. This left a lasting impact and to this day, I’m habitually early to things.
WORDS YOU LIVE BY: (FAVOURITE QUOTE OR LIFE PHILOSOPHY)
“What goes around, comes around.” How you treat people will eventually come back to you in one way or another. In the construction industry, you can come across all different types of people, and no matter what, I always try to treat others with respect and consideration.
