What excites you most about the work you do?
I’d say it’s a combination of a few things – I like that every day provides different challenges and unique problem-solving opportunities. I also really enjoy building; anything that starts as a conceptual design and then comes to life right in front of your eyes excites me. Whether I am an integral part of the process, managing it, or having the tools in my hand all make me happy.
What do you like best about working at HBW?
Well, it has to be the people, right? One of the most important elements of enjoying your work and life would be the people you are around daily. We have an amazing core group at HBW that genuinely cares about each other and our passions in life. I like the teamwork mindset, working towards a common goal, and sprinkling in personal stories and situations to learn and grow together. We also have an environment that encourages people to say something if a particular process does not make sense; we vet through it, agree, and make adjustments to become better than the day before.
What’s your favorite project you’ve worked on so far?
That’s a tough question, and I don’t think I can single out one particular project. I’ve been a part of many sub-sectors at this point ranging from office space, retail, government, base building, daycare centers, medical and multifamily projects, to name a few. I know I have been very fortunate to work with great clients over the years. I also like knowing that we can create a space where that particular tenant’s vision and mission can come to life for years to come.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I enjoy a lot of different things, probably too many for my own good. I spend most of my time with family and friends, cooking, DIY projects around the house, building and driving cars, golfing, and staying in a good workout routine. I want to travel a bit more. I’m always down for a challenge or competition and enjoy personal growth.
Anything else you think prospective employees should know about HBW?
HBW is an excellent company. The leadership team listens and cares about everyone at a personal level. There is also a clear path for growth in any position with the company. We are always evolving and tweaking to do things more efficiently and create more value for our customers; for example, we teach a few AIA accredited continuing education courses like Budgeting and Scheduling 101. We take pride in giving back to the community by donating our time, resources, and fundraising to select local and national causes—all in all, it’s a great work environment.
