Quotes from RGC Women about Women in Construction (WIC) Week:

“My favorite part of my job is watching my work come to life. I am still amazed today as I watch a project transform from a sketch to a building with its own identity. I love the construction industry because of the people that have become my work family over the years – the Uncle Eddies, the Crazy Aunt Sues, the Annoying Little Brothers… The memories and the stories that I have created over the years are priceless and could have only happened in construction.” – Jennifer Fisher, Preconstruction Manager

“Bring your ability to multi-task, your ability to connect with people and be caring, your ability to lead and teach, your ability to see the details, and prioritize those things that matter the most. All of these qualities are well suited to help you succeed in the construction industry, and the perfect way to add strength and diversity to the teams you serve.” – Lindsey Smith, Project Manager

“My favorite part of working in the industry (construction) is watching the progress that is made on a project. No day is ever the same as the last because construction is forward moving, and no two projects are the same. Also, I really enjoy driving past a project that I was involved in, once it is occupied, and thinking about my own personal “ownership” or experience in bringing that particular place to life. I would tell women looking to get into construction that they should just go for it, don’t be nervous. They (women) can bring new ideas and learn and adapt their skill set.” – Che Odom, Business Process Administrator
