Sue Koch – Sign Shop Professional

  • What is the most rewarding part of your job? The most rewarding part is seeing the signs and equipment that I have worked on as I am driving around the state.
  • Did you have a mentor when you started? I did not have a mentor, but I learned a lot from completing different projects and as time went on.
  • What has been your favorite project you have worked on?  I don’t work on a project site, but I do get to work on special projects like the Christmas Parade floats, which are always fun.
  • What did you want to be when you grew up? Graphic designer or interior designer.
  • What made you interested in a career in construction? I made my job decision more on the idea of working for a great company like Miron instead of focusing on the field of construction.
  • What are some challenges you face in your role? Some challenges I face day to day are climbing on equipment to get stickers on or off, and contorting my body to fit in small and spaces.
  • How did you get into construction? It was not so much the field of construction that I was trying to get in to, but the creative and artistic position I am in.
