What excites you most about the work you do?
What excites me about the work that I do is that every week, I can face many challenges, and there are a variety of jobs that I have the chance to work on. I enjoy that the day to day work is always changing. One day, I can be drywall finishing, and the next day I could be installing a door.
What do you like best about working at HBW?
What I like best about working at HBW are the people. From my co-workers to clients, I have had the opportunity to build strong bonds and relationships that will last a lifetime. HBW feels like family and continually motivates me to be my best.
What’s your favorite project you’ve worked on so far?
My favorite project has been the Brookings Institute. I was the lead person on several jobs at this location and was on site for about two years, working on each of them. The project consisted of bathroom renovations and splitting office/conference rooms to remodeling a whole floor. I not only enjoyed the project because of the work we completed but also because of the friendship I was able to gain. I became good friends with the Facilities Manager, John Parker, due to working closely with him throughout the projects.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
In my spare time, I enjoy collecting coins, playing Texas Hold’em, and traveling as often as I can.
Anything else you think prospective employees should know about HBW?
The culture and the people at HBW are top-notch. In the Services division of HBW, there are a great group of people, and it feels like we are family. Everyone gets along with each other and supports one another. I would not want to work for any other company.
