Welcome to O‑A‑K, Part 1

We are excited to introduce our summer interns and new hires of 2020 in a three part series. This post features Carlos Garcia, Alyson Lloyd, Jacob Vroon, and Gabe Baumann.

Carlos Garcia, Intern

I’m from Mexico and I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan. This is my second summer interning with O‑A‑K. What interested me about the Company is how everyone is easygoing and respected. An interesting fact about myself is that I can speak a bit of French.

Carlos is spending the summer on-site at Grand Rapids Union High School.

Alyson Lloyd, Intern

I am from Grand Rapids, Michigan. I have always been fascinated with the construction process, and was drawn to O‑A‑K because they are a leader in industry practices, and have a strong work culture. In my free time, I enjoy being outdoors, no matter the season. In the winter, you can find me snowmobiling and skiing; in the summer, you can find me at the cottage or boating.

Alyson is spending the summer on-site at Frederik Meijer Gardens.

Jacob Vroon, Assistant Project Superintendent

I am from Holland, Michigan. Getting to know Jeremy Amshey (O‑A‑K's Chief Operating Officer) at the career fair at Ferris, followed by a visit to the O‑A‑K Yard during a class, got me interested in the company. Then, after researching the history of the company, and the reputation O‑A‑K has in the community I wanted to become part of the team. Something interesting that happened to me was that I got lost and fell through the ice while ice fishing on Saginaw Bay.

Jacob is spending the summer on-site with Grandville Public Schools.

About Gabe Baumann, Assistant Project Superintendent

I am from Rockford, Michigan. O‑A‑K struck my interest because of the location of work. Being from the Grand Rapids area, I have seen all of the work O‑A‑K has done for the community, especially Rockford. I felt that O‑A‑K holds strong values and does a lot of great work in the community and that is why I wanted to be a part of their team. Some of my hobbies include spending time with my family on our lake, golfing, playing football (I am an offensive lineman for Northern Michigan University).

Gabe is spending the summer on-site at Rockford Public Schools.
