Meet Carson Mowery, Junior Estimator, Meadow Valley Electric, Inc., and ABC Keystone YP Committee Member

What role do you play in your organization?

I’m a Junior Estimator with Meadow Valley Electric, Inc. in Ephrata. I started in this position almost two years ago after working in electrical distribution. I set up bid folders for the estimators and work on getting the power and lighting counts together in preparation for sending them out for pricing from our vendors. Once the counts are completed, I put the totals together in RFPs to our vendors. I contribute to the bid process by assisting the main estimator in measuring and determining the lengths of conduit and wire. My work is completed under the guidance and training of an experienced estimator. Read more…

As a Young Professional, how has your involvement with ABC Keystone helped you?
My involvement in the Young Professional Committee has been great during my time with ABC. I feel that anything that brings people together and discusses issues or experiences as a group is a very helpful experience, especially throughout this pandemic, where we’ve all been thrown into similar difficult situations. It is the feeling of community and comradery that I enjoy most about the Young Professionals Committee.

What is your favorite or inspirational quote?
“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
– Ferris Bueller (John Hughes)

I am sure it is not every day someone in the professional world says their favorite quote is from the movie “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” but this quote is truly one of my favorites. One of my greatest fears in life is looking back one day and feeling like I missed opportunities or did not appreciate the special moments which didn’t seem big at the time. This quote helps to keep me grounded and to remember to stop and appreciate even the small things through all the noise and stress of a fast-moving life!

Meet Tim Myers, Estimating Manager, Wohlsen Construction Company!

What words of advice do you have for your fellow Young Professionals?
It is important to seek out a financial planner early in your career. Get out of debt, stay out of debt, and save for the future. Starting to save early allows you to take full advantage of a friend called “Compound Interest.”

Meet Brad Lefever, Wohlsen Construction Company!

As a Young Professional, how has your involvement with ABC Keystone helped you?

Being a part of the YP Committee has helped introduce me to new networking opportunities, hone my professional skills, influence our industry with a group of peers, and more. I think the greatest opportunity for me has been to push myself outside my comfort zone with networking. I encourage other YPs and co-workers of mine to get out there and meet other people in the industry, because it helps you grow your people skills while building an industry network that has real benefits.
