Let’s Get To It……

What got you into the AEC industry and what keeps you here?

The architects and designers. Their work inspires me, and I am energized by the near constant flow of creativity.

When and why did you first join SMPS, and what keeps you coming back?

I joined SMPS to be connected to other individuals who did what I did. It is a great professional resource for networking and advice.

What advice do you have for our newer SMPS DC members about getting the most out of their membership?

Take as many webinars as possible, they are informative and can help you to think outside the box.

What has been your favorite SMPS DC or SMPS event?

I participated in the mentorship program. It was an excellent way to meet seasoned professionals and our field. My mentor helped me to navigate several professional hurdles and I am thankful for the advice I received.

Best work-related advice you’ve ever gotten?

Print it out. Typos are embarrassing and annoying, so I print everything and reread it. They really jump out at you on paper.
