From a young age, I remember tagging along to my father’s construction sites during school breaks. My brother and I would don hard hats and help pick up trash at the site. As we got older, we learned how to paint and weld. But the best part was getting to observe our dad at work. He mainly worked with metal on projects like fences and barndominiums. One project that I was especially in awe of was a gate made to look like two 8-foot spurs that went down to a ranch in South Texas. 

While construction was always part of my life, it wasn’t always clear that I would follow in my dad’s footsteps. I studied marketing and business administration at Schreiner University, where I also played softball, a childhood dream of mine. Between my studies and softball, I didn’t have a lot of time for other activities. So when I graduated, I wasn’t sure what path my career would take. 

Being familiar with the world of construction, I decided to apply for an entry-level position at Joeris General Contractors, a commercial construction company based in San Antonio. I was hired as the closeout administrator and tasked with creating a closeout process that helps to streamline the completion of a project.
