Words to live by: “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” — Coco Chanel
About working in a male-dominated field: It has its moments, but there are tons of women in executive leadership roles. I’ve been in construction my whole life. I talk the talk and walk the walk. I have respect and am not there to just look good.
Bucket-list must: Traveling to Antwerp, Belgium for my three favorite things: diamonds, tulips and chocolate.
Philanthropy inspiration: My mom. She was a stay-at-home mother and devoted 20-plus years to volunteering at a retirement facility. I was raised to always give back to those who are less fortunate.
Childhood dream: I always wanted to be a lawyer, a wife and a mother—0 for 3 so far!
