What excites you most about the work you do?

The fast-paced and complex problem-solving that comes with every single job – big or small. I never wanted a desk job where I did the same routine thing every day. Working in this industry allows me to find solutions to new problems and ways to avoid issues altogether. I really enjoy the challenge that comes with fully understanding the ins and outs of every job.

What do you like best about working at HBW?

The community that comes with this company. I have met some of my best friends at HBW that I know will continue to be in my life for years to come. Everyone at HBW has made me feel comfortable asking questions and admitting what I don’t know in order to be better. The support provided here has helped me grow in immeasurable ways.

What’s your favorite project you’ve worked on so far?

My favorite project would have to be Zo Lounge. I was put on the project on the first day I started at HBW. I had no idea what I was doing, and I was thrown into the middle of it. I learned so much on that job, which still impacts me today. Nevertheless, that it was a stunning project with intricate details throughout. From the slatted ceilings that looked like a wave to the blue velvet operable partition. I still like to stop in from time to time whenever I’m in DC.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Anything that involves being outside. Construction can be a stressful industry, and nothing calms me more than nature. If I’m not working, you can find me hiking with my dog, rock climbing, or doing yoga.

Anything else you think prospective employees should know about HBW?

HBW is a great place to find yourself. I stumbled into this opportunity, and I am so thankful I did. You will learn something each day and have the opportunity to progress if you have the drive. So long as you are willing to make it happen, HBW will always stand behind you. That is not something you find at many other companies.
