WHEN DID YOU REALIZE CONSTRUCTION WAS THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR YOU?
I have always had an idea since I was a little girl, I always tried building things. As I started Construction out of High School I realized that I am the type of woman that is “hands-on” and O‑A‑K has given me the opportunity for that.
WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED WORKING AT O‑A‑K?
Ever since I started working at O‑A‑K I realized that the construction industry is very competitive. I learned that it is very important to have respect for your Subcontractors and Owners and Build the “Right” way.
WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR FREE TIME?
I love to play golf when I am not at work, and also spend time with my son. I also enjoy watching all sports when I get free time and being active.
