Having being in the construction industry for several years, I have learned a lot about myself. As a female in a dominate male role, I have learned to be assertive and understanding with boundaries in tact. I have done the smallest of projects to the large, full demo projects; both are just as rewarding when the client smiles. I am a problem solver and enthusiastic. I accept criticism with heart and implement changes where needed. I am a full-functioning go-getter and rarely take no for an answer when it comes to solutions. I always find a way to make things work both on the front end and back end. My refusal to stop or accept mediocre is a blessing and a curse. I’m always looking for ways to improve production not only for business but for everyone involved on a project. I am not afraid to get my hands dirty and I am capable of doing most subcontractor work including demo, flooring, tile, painting, landscaping, punch list items or something as simple as cleanup on a job site. I communicate well with all walks of life and appreciate that skill above most. I am not easily intimidated by others in the construction industry and continue breaking boundaries. I am empathetic but structured with high standards. I’ve worked for out of state flippers and buy and holds who have entrusted me and the crew I have hired to see their visions through, from start to finish. I take pride in knowing I am trusted and reliable for those who are not local, as well as those who are. I am a generous soul with so much to give and I want my talent to go to those who need me.
