How did you get involved in the industry?
In 2003, I was an executive business consultant for a 300+ employee design/build mechanical firm serving multiple states. In 2005, I was asked to join an emerging design/build mechanical contractor as the COO/VP. Over the next 13 years, we grew that business to 185 employees servicing DC, MD, and northern VA while being recognized by ABC for safety (STEP), quality (AQC and AOE), and diversity (National Diversity).
I love working in our industry and creating together. Genesis has been with ABC since inception, and I personally have been involved with ABC since 2003 having served on Chapter Boards, chaired committees, and currently serving on a diversity council.
How does ABC provide you value?
ABC is an essential partnership for not only legislative updates and keeping our finger on the economic pulse, but also for growing our next generation of tradespeople. Everything in between is an additional benefit of membership.

Our headquarters is located in a HUBZone of Towson, MD, and we are in process for HUBZone certification. Genesis began building out the New Freedom, PA and Towson, MD office spaces in mid-March 2019, and our ribbon cutting ceremony was June 2019.
Genesis Corporation is a 100% woman-owned commercial mechanical, electrical, plumbing contractor serving York County and Maryland markets. Our focus is being a preferred contractor that offers one point of contact, one contract, three trades. We happen to have certifications such as WBE, SBE, EDWOSB, and several others. Genesis is also on the approved contractor list for Johns Hopkins.
What is an interesting fact about your business most people don’t know?
Although Genesis Corporation is an emerging contractor, the majority of the employees have all worked together for 10+ years at previous large design/build electrical and mechanical firms in Baltimore. Our capabilities, knowledge, and skills are large commercial focused. As we implement a smart growth strategy, we are expanding operations into the commercial HVAC service market.
