What behavior or personality trait do you most attribute to your success and why? 

I probably would be considered an extrovert, so this has helped with my success. I enjoy communicating with our office and field team members, subcontractors, and clients.

What is your greatest professional accomplishment?

My greatest professional accomplishment was being promoted to Vice President and General Manager of General Construction for Morgan-Keller back in 2019. I also was given the opportunity to become Minority Owner that same year, which was an exceptional privilege.

Name one award you are most proud to have received.

I received the Morgan-Keller Spirit Award in 2013. This award is given annually to just one person in the office who exemplifies the spirit of Morgan-Keller.

What is your experience with volunteering and civic engagement?

I am involved with the following Boards and Councils: Hagerstown YMCA Board, Hagerstown Community College Foundation Board, Maryland Building Industry Association - Multi-Family Council Chair, Advisory Board - CNB Bank

I participate in fundraising events with the Hagerstown YMCA . Morgan-Keller is generous with supporting non-profit organizations in Frederick County through sponsorships and participation.
