What inspired you to pursue a career in the AEC industry? Honestly, I was very good at math and enjoyed it, so my high school guidance counselor suggested engineering.

What’s the biggest challenge you’ve faced? Staying on top of changing industry trends, changing technology, tighter time frames, tighter budgets…and the economy.

What are some characteristics of leadership at an MEP firm? Leadership can obviously take on many forms, but in general I think you need excellent people management skills, project management skills, proven knowledge and experience/expertise in your field, and the ability to share/teach/mentor the younger or newer, less-experienced staff.
