What is your favorite quote? 
This may not have been her exact quote, but at a CREW luncheon back in 2019 Sandy Hostetter shared her advice on being a working or a stay-at-home parent and said, “do what lets you be the best version of yourself.”  At that event, I had just come back from maternity leave, so my kids were pretty young – 5 years, 3 years, and 4 months. I always knew I would continue working after kids, because I loved what I was doing, but I’d still have those moments of doubt. Her quote is one I think about a lot, because I know that working in this industry and working at Turner has made me the best version of myself. 

What has been the greatest surprise in your career journey? 
How much I enjoy working in the construction industry. I studied public relations, and did not have a career in construction on my radar back when I was in school. But 15 years later, I cannot imagine doing anything else. 

Who do you consider to be the greatest influence in your career? 
My husband, John. We have three little boys, plus we both have careers that we enjoy. We’ve both struggled at times with work/life balance, but he’s supported and encouraged me throughout my career.
