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 made you interested in a career in construction? I’ve always found construction fascinating. From start to finish, there’s a lot of work in different areas and everyone must work together as a team – which I love. Watching a building or project come to life and seeing the result gives you a sense of pride when you’re involved in some way.
- Did you have a female mentor, or are you a mentor to another female? If so, why are those experiences so valuable? I did have a female mentor. She was invaluable with the advice she gave, not only towards my career goals but how to get there in a male-dominated industry. She also helped give me the confidence to get outside my comfort zone.
- What advice would you give to other young women who are interested in construction as a career? Be direct and clear with your goals and aspirations for what you want and where you want to go in your career. Don’t get discouraged with setbacks, stay positive, and keep going after your dreams.
