What interested you in pursuing construction management as a career?
I worked in residential construction while in college and really enjoyed the experience. I like being outside and forming close bonds with construction crews and clients. That job helped shape my passions and prove that this was the path I wanted to follow.
In your own words, describe your job.
I manage every facet of a project from start to finish. I coordinate, schedule, and manage subcontractors for the owner while providing communication, updates, and input about the project.
Best CM advice?
Listen. Your peers in the office and the field, all have their expertise and wealth of knowledge. Try to absorb as much as possible so that you can better your approaches and methods.
