“I joined the PWC-CT, and later served on the board, because it provided me the opportunity to further advocate for women and the underrepresented in this industry. Through PWC, I meet and engage with individuals from different backgrounds all working towards the same goal – safe project completion and client satisfaction. ”

“Working with and enabling children to be their best is dear to me. Although PWC doesn’t work with children, we provide young adults with crucial guidance and support during the formative years of establishing their construction careers with both the mentor and scholarship programs. There is nothing better than paying forward and PWC does this.”

My PWC-CT involvement allows me to share my experiences with new and emerging professionals and empower them through the awards program. PWC-CT also gives me the opportunity to meet people and stay current on community and industry trends.”
