It’s Women in Construction Week! I Build America – Kentucky is taking the opportunity to share the stories of the women across the state who make up our great industry. The stories of these women show the diverse backgrounds, interests, skills, and talents that are part of the work we do–and we encourage more women of all ages and interests to consider careers in construction.
You can follow along as the nation celebrates its female construction workforce. Check out the hashtag #WICWeek2022 and #IBuildAmericaKY!

What do you like most about working in construction?
The Construction field is very exciting to me. Every day is different, it’s challenging some days but I love that I learn something new almost every day. This makes my job exciting and helps keep me driven and curious because I am always learning and wanting to know more.
There are several things I love about my job but the part most satisfying is that I get to build relationships with customers and just being out involved with customers
I truly love the sense of achievement I feel at the end of MOST days (there are a few days that are chaotic, LOL)
