How has your military experience prepared you for success in construction?
My background in the military gives me structure and discipline in the way I approach daily operations. I’ve become more confident and assertive, which helps me get my message across clearly while also moving the project forward.
What’s the best part about working with other veterans at Skanska?
Having veterans on my project team gives me the opportunity to work with my brothers in arms. We have complex projects with tight timeframes and budgets so it’s an intangible benefit that military veterans bring structured decision making to everything they do.
Why did you choose Skanska?
Skanska is a global construction company that builds iconic buildings around the world, and I wanted to be a part of that.
