In your own words, describe your job.
I’m the glue that holds the office together! I keep operations and employees running smoothly by keeping everyone informed and engaged. I plan office activities, answer phone calls, write project contracts, organize records, bid projects out, schedule lunch and learns, order supplies, and so much more! I get to do a lot of meticulous, detail-oriented work but also be involved in fun things like planning birthday treats and culture events.
What is your favorite type of task to do at work?
I love coordinating activities and events for employees. We do a lot of fun things together and I love being involved in that planning process.
What is your favorite ZBA/GCS project?
There are so many that I love! I think my favorite is Sts. Anne & Joachim Catholic Church in Fargo. There are so many details that make it look amazing. The scope of work that went into it is very impressive!
