What role do you play in your organization?
Currently I oversee the company’s financial and accounting activities. My job begins with estimating, reviewing quotes received by suppliers, and helping to put together the best proposal possible. Once we are awarded a job, I review and negotiate the subcontract. From there, I put our budget together and send out purchase orders to the suppliers we have awarded. Once the job starts, I manage any change orders as well as process all accounts payable and receivable. Throughout the job’s life, I manage and report on budgeted versus actual costs. The accounting work I do does not stop with direct job costs. I oversee all indirect costs associated with the business, reconcile our accounts, and perform month end journal entries to close our books.

Why do you wake up and go to work every day?
I genuinely enjoy what I do and love the culture of Cedar Run. I like to be a part of the entire process, from the inception of a job, helping to work out the issues that arise along the way, and then seeing how we performed at the end. I do well in a fast-paced environment where you need to perform daily to stay ahead of what is coming up next, so I am happy to have found a home at Cedar Run.

How has your involvement in ABC Keystone provided you value in your professional life?
With being in the early stages of my involvement with ABC I am excited to see what doors it will help open for me and the company for which I work. So far, I have met some informative people that have helped the way I look at the business and how I interact with our stakeholders. It has also opened another world of networking that I was unaware of before being a part of the construction industry and a part of ABC Keystone. I enjoyed meeting new people at the mixer in August.

What are your hobbies?
Boating and jet skiing with friends and family on the Susquehanna, running, skateboarding and snowboarding

What is your favorite inspirational quote?
