What is the most exciting thing about working in this business? What is your professional passion?
One of the things I like most about working in the construction industry is the variety and complexity of projects that I’ve had the opportunity work on. No two projects are the same, even if it is a similar scope, same owner or the same business type. That variety has kept me passionate about construction for more than 30 years. My professional passions are problem-solving and mentoring women in this industry. I love being presented with a problem that the team is having and working with them to facilitate the best solution for the project. I may be a little biased in saying this, but I believe that women make excellent project managers. Women have an innate ability to multitask, and this skill is fundamental in successful project management. Construction is not a traditional career for women, but it can be incredibly fulfilling. I love to work with young women who are interested in a career in construction. I hope to share my passion for this industry with the future leaders at Suffolk.
