As a female leader in the construction industry, she brings a special viewpoint that allows her passion for quality renovation, teamwork and integrity to be integrated into every project.

The firm employs a majority female workforce from project managers and materials coordinators to the estimator and permitting expert, a rare ratio in the industry.
