What important event stands out in your professional life so far?
I am very awkward with sharing accomplishments, as it always feels undeserved even if it is. This last year I was the first-ever winner of the nationwide Restoration & Remediation Ladder Award 2020 (under age 35). The award celebrates leaders climbing the ladder of success in the restoration industry. In early 2020, the R&R team launched the Ladder Award with the goal of recognizing rising young professionals in restoration, who are blazing new trails with innovative leadership, ideas, and technological advancements. Ladder Award nominees can come from any level as long as they have had an impact within their company. Each nominee is expected to exhibit qualities such as leadership, career progress, community involvement, and a clear passion for the industry. Most importantly, nominees should exhibit evidence of high character, integrity, and care for their colleagues and clients. I was the only female in the top 5 and it was truly an overall awesome experience and was immensely proud of myself.
