Tell us a little bit about your career and current position.
I am an Estimator with a general contracting firm, Trident Construction Group. Before my current role I was Chief Estimator with an industrial electrical contracting firm and I started out at a manufacturing plant for doors and corrugated metal that grew its own construction company where I worked my way up to an Estimator / Project Manager role.
How long have you been a NAWIC member, and how did you learn about NAWIC?
Two months, my construction company owner mentioned it, and I HAD to join after discussing more ways to get involved in our construction community.
How has NAWIC helped you in your career?
I am excited about sharing my unique voice. I feel like I came up in a alternative way, I started out as an administrative assistant and I have fought for my career. I have been the only female estimator at every company I have worked for, since entering this exciting industry. I LOVE my fellow women in construction, I want to meet everyone and listen to their experiences, stories and lessons learned.
What is the best part about being a NAWIC member?
The opportunity to meet women that I would not get to meet in my “typical” environment.
Why do you consider NAWIC to be a great organization?
NAWIC is a great organization to be a part of because through NAWIC you are able to meet phenomenal women from all over the nation that are in the construction industry that are at your disposal to network with and learn from.
