  • What would you tell someone interested in joining the construction industry?
  • Every person you work with and come by will teach you differently. Gather what you learn from each person, and make a toolbox that will lead you to success. If you have a chance to get out to the training facility, do it. It’s a great place and the union really provides a lot of training to help make you a better carpenter.
  • You’ve been nominated for the Employee of Choice, anything you’d like to say in reference to that?
  • I am humbled. I didn’t see it coming. I like it because when a company appreciates its employees it pushes us to work harder for that company. The appreciation and knowing our work is noticed is nice.
  • Tell us an interesting or fun fact about yourself.
  • I have a masters in professional counseling and an undergrad in pre-law. I choose the union because it’s what makes me the happiest and I enjoy the work most.
  • What do you value most about OCP?
  • Patience and willingness with apprentices to teach us and help us grow.
