Tell us about your background and role at Connico.

I have been working in the construction industry for the past 8 years. Watching and working on the vertical construction of houses inspired me to pursue my civil engineering degree at Tennessee Tech. In my role as an Analyst I at Connico, I assist our estimators and engineers in finding quantities for our estimates, primarily for our civil department.

What do you find most rewarding about your job?

One of the best parts about my job is working with such a dedicated and collaborative team. I am always proud to be part of the team that helps deliver an incredibly detailed estimate to our clients and finish a project on time.

What skills or opportunities are you excited to expand on at Connico?

I’m looking forward to learning to estimate and put prices on not only civil quantities, but also other disciplines of engineering. I want to learn more on-site engineering and deepen my knowledge of airport construction.

What’s the best part of Connico’s culture?

Everyone at Connico has goals, and we work together as a team to achieve them. The people are meticulous and driven to finish each job with excellence. There’s a kind, caring atmosphere both internally and externally on our job sites.

What is the best career advice you’ve been given as a young professional?

I was once told to never stay quiet and to always ask questions. This has been great advice, and it has encouraged me to be more curious about my work.

What’s a fun fact about you many people may not know?

I was born in Liberal, Kansas!
