Past Experience/Background: I worked in a lot of customer service related fields from 2006-2014. AFT Construction 2015-Present.
What do you enjoy about working in the construction industry? Every day is different, I learn something new every single day. I love watching a project come to life and seeing the finished product.

What advice would you give to someone who is considering a home remodel or building a new home?

Hiring a great designer and architect can help alleviate many of these issues.
