I have been in construction all my life. In high school my summers were spent working in construction. I tried continuing my education but construction just seemed to click for me. I was fortunate to land a starting position with one of Arizona’s largest homebuilders. My experience with them included customer service, construction superintendent, plan conception to purchasing.
In 1989 I decided to pursue my dreams for myself and proceeded to become one of Arizona’s largest contractors. As in my youth, I love building from conception to completion. Experience and knowledge has given me the opportunity to make others’ dreams come true with beautiful quality homes.
Being part of a family business, I Iearned the work ethics and principles it takes to be successful in life. In college I interned with an off-sites and grading company. After graduating from the Del Webb School of Construction at Arizona State University with a BA in construction management, I worked with a large commercial builder.
I gained valuable experience as a field engineer at two large projects in the Scottsdale Quarter and another in Arkansas at the University of Arkansas. Like my father, I started at the bottom and have worked my way up in our company. I truly enjoy building a quality product, whether it is a high rise or a custom home it’s all great.
Summers were spent as a teen learning the family business from the ground up. After a two years of college I joined the business full time. I have gained valuable experience in working with clients, crews, other trades, suppliers and their different products, along with the estimating part of our business.
My knowledge of the products that are available and the ability to listen to the customer’s needs, leads to finding the look and quality they want for their home. I now the head of our stucco division.
After more than a decade of teaching at the elementary school level, I joined my husband and boys. My responsibilities are managing the office, helping design floor plans, participating in the selection process of the flooring, counter tops, plumbing fixtures, paint colors, light fixtures, and cabinets.
I enjoy getting creative with each new project. Being a realtor, I also sell our custom homes we build as specs.
