1. How did you get into the home building industry?

When I was looking for work I really wanted to work for a smaller organization that had a family feel, but was operated as efficiently as any larger organization. After I completed the interview process at Excel I felt like this would be the perfect place for me to start my professional career.

2. How long you have been with Excel?

It will be six months in August

3. What is the most rewarding part of your position?

The most rewarding part for me is all the one-on-one time I get to spend with our employees, getting to know everyone in office and in the field. The ability to help people whether it’s with personal matters or work related concerns, making sure they know they are heard and well supported.

4. How do you enjoy spending your free time outside of work?

I love spending my evenings and weekends at the pool, spending quality time with my niece and nephew, or trying all the different restaurants around the city. I also enjoy the occasional trip out to the mountains to get the chance to disconnect and relax.

5. Where do you see yourself and/or Excel within the next year?

Within the next year I will be working towards my CPHR designation and work on broadening my Human Resources experience.
