Work Experience

“I’m passionate about being engaged with the team who works here and being a part of their lives.”

Did you know?

“Construction is pretty deep in my family’s background, but I didn’t know what type of career I could pursue in construction. Landscaping was more creative.”

“I really like duck hunting and being outdoors. I started going about eight years ago. I wasn’t thinking about work—I was removed and relaxed.”

Words of wisdom

“The perfect employee is someone who treats the company as their own. They take ownership in their job, want to learn, but they also aren’t afraid to offer input.”

“If you’re trying to build a larger business, you’ve got to know how to turn things over to people and let them do their jobs. You’ve got to let them win and fail sometimes, too.”

“It’s about being able to compartmentalize and be present with where you are: It challenges me on a regular basis.”
