Business Leaders Breakfast


How many years have you served on this Committee?
This is my first year on the Committee.

Why did you choose this Committee?
Since my background is in sales and fundraising it was a perfect fit!

How did you get into the A&D industry? 
When I worked at United Way I connected with firms in Commercial Real Estate, Construction, and A&D to fulfil their volunteer and philanthropic goals. The people in the industry and the work done fascinated me, and that is when I decided to go work with Gilbane on their Interior’s team. 

What is your favorite IIDA NE event? 
The breakfast, duh! Just kidding, my favorite event is the Design Awards; I love to see all the creative work celebrated with the industry.
