What inspired you to start GCS?
I wanted to have the ability to provide professional construction management services for building owners in our region. Being from the area, I thought it particularly important to offer my skills and passions to the community that raised me. I enjoy seeing my work impact the local and regional communities.

What do you like most about working here?
I enjoy the challenges that come with this line of work. Getting projects done on a tight timeline is exciting and very rewarding once complete. The variety in our projects also means that I get to work with many people in various professions throughout the industry. I like getting to know their trades and seeing their skills in action throughout the life of a project.

What is your favorite type of project to work on? Why?
I love projects that have tight timelines and require a lot of thinking and out-of-the-box problem solving. Anything that makes my mind work through challenges in a collaborative style.
