What Lead You to Your Current Job: I started off as an intern CAD operator in high school and slowly worked my way into estimating.

Job Duties: I work closely with our project managers to estimate the cost of new projects. Our team works to put together the most competetive bid for either a big or small project, and we always have to meet a strict deadline.

What I Like About My Job: What I like most is that when a job is completed I get to move onto the next one. It’s always something new.
