This week we celebrate Women in Construction Week (WIC) and the many women who work in and make important contributions to our industry every day! We are pleased to share the stories from many of the women who work and live in NH and VT. The project was created in partnership with I Build NH and NAWIC Granite State Chapter.
I chose to pursue a professional career in the construction industry because I would like to see the country’s infrastructure grow.

How did you find yourself working in the construction industry?
I was looking for a challenge where I felt I could apply my project management and technologies skills to promote the use of new and existing technology applications in the construction industry.

The ability to affect various generations within the construction industry and encourage the use of technology to enhance their abilities.
