As part of Women in Construction Week 2022, we’re highlighting the women of Miron Construction – their backgrounds, what got them into construction, and what both rewards and challenges them. We hope these features inform and inspire you!
- What are the most challenging things on a project? Having difficult conversations. Things will never be perfect or go 100% as planned, which lead to having difficult conversations. They are not pleasant but a pivotal part to a successful project.
- What is the most rewarding part of your job? Having clients be happy with their construction experience/building.
- Did you have a mentor when you started? Mentors are important to learn from. They are great sounding boards for how to handle situations, teachable moments and more.
- What has been your favorite project you have worked on? My favorite project has been BayCare OSMM. The project team was amazing to work with. Great Miron team, Owners, and Architects. Having a team that works well together made it a favorite even though it wasn’t the flashiest project I have been on.
- What did you want to be when you grew up? Construction has always been my dream.
- What made you interested in a career in construction? My dad always was in construction and would take us to sites on the weekends to help out.
- What are some challenges you face in your role? The biggest challenge is adapting when plans don’t go perfectly.
- How did you get into construction? My uncle gave me a job cleaning up the construction shop during high school, which lead me to here. Went from cleaning to mechanic assistant to operator to project manager.
