Tell us about your job and what you do:
I manage costs on all of our Site projects within Allan Myers. I work with our Project Managers to accurately track costs, recognize and recoup change order costs, and accurately project our gains and losses for the jobs throughout their duration. I process and submit all billings to our owners and make sure we get paid in a timely fashion as per our contracts. I manage our cash flow on our projects and forecast our revenue for each project.

Most rewarding professional experience:
I would say the most rewarding professional experience is when you see that you have helped other co-workers grow and develop in their career. All of the hard work and time you have spent helping them along the way pays off when you see the influence you have had on them and how they have been able to become a successful individual within the company. Knowing you have made a difference in their lives both professionally and personally is a huge reward.
I love to exercise. I especially love when I can “work out” by staying active outdoors in the warmer months. I like to go for runs, bikes, or hike the Delaware Canal by my house. I also like doing yard work because it is so rewarding when it is all done!
Advice for other young professionals:
Give 100% of what you have every day. Never give up and always ask questions. The people around you are there to help and are usually very willing to see you succeed. Always honor your commitments and follow through with what you say you are going to do- even if this means letting someone know you don’t know the answer. Letting that person know the truth is better than leaving them in the dark.
