Tell us about your background and role at Connico.
I have been a cost estimator in the construction industry for almost 25 years and with Connico for over five of those. My project experience has been in the retail, office, water treatment, public transit, health care and aviation market sectors. For most of my career, I have worked for construction companies as a general contractor or construction manager. I love working in the industry because every project is different, challenging and fulfilling.

While Connico continues to grow, the core business remains the same. Everyone’s focus is on bringing their best self every day to meet the needs of each project. We’re really only successful if our client is successful.
Where has been your favorite place to travel to so far and why?
I like to go down roads that are off the beaten path. It's fun to travel to faraway places, but it's exciting to find interesting, new places close to home. Sometimes the best places to visit and explore are near where you travel every day.
