Background

Summary

President-Elect of the Orange County Chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC). With NAWIC, there are NO LIMITS! www.nawic.org

I joined the CalPortland team March 2014 as a Ready Mix Sales Representative with Catalina Pacific Concrete. Catalina Pacific is a leading ready mix concrete producer in the Greater Los Angeles area, operating as a division of CalPortland - a major building materials and construction solutions provider to the Western United States and Canada, with expertise in cement production, distribution, ready mix concrete, aggregate, asphalt, construction services and other building materials.

My previous career roles include customer service, classroom instruction, administrative duties, scheduling and dispatching operations, purchasing, inside sales, middle management and outside sales. The combined skill-set offers a unique perspective to the overall processes involved with construction sales.

Passionate about professional development, I often participate in learning opportunities through industry organizations, seek out certifications as they relate to my industry, and consistently network in and among other trades closely related to the construction industry.

Honoree at the 2013 NAWBO-OC Remarkable Women Awards. Instructor and volunteer staffer with Camp NAWIC construction program through NAWIC Orange County.
