What’s been your biggest professional accomplishment so far in your career?

As section manager, I am most proud of the growth I’ve helped drive for my department and company. Within the last five years, I have grown a team of four community outreach and environmental professionals in the Northeast region to 30, a 650% increase from where we began.

How are you involved in the community?

I participate in the Pan-Mass Challenge, a 192-mile bike ride from Sturbridge to Provincetown, Mass., with our team raising over $220,000 for cancer research. I’m an advocate for the United Way, where our company raised over $158,000 in 2022, and contributed to the company’s 2022 United Way campaign donation of $4.4 million.

What do you like to do outside of work?

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family, taking part in my kids’ sporting events and being an active member of my towns’ boards and commissions. I also enjoy biking for fun and in preparation for the charity bike ride that I participate in annually.

Why do you deserve to be a 40 Under Forty?

• I have been named a Community Ambassador Contributor by United Way for my contributions over the years.

• I have grown my team of community outreach and environmental professionals from four to 30 employees, a 650% increase within five years.

• I have been named an associate at Burns & McDonnell – a title requiring board of directors approval.

• In my career, I have successfully managed over 20 projects that support the northeast’s critical infrastructure.
