Project Manager

Favorite part about my job:

In a word, people. Those who I work with at Sawhill, and the clients we design and build amazing spaces for. I enjoy getting to know our clients and, by the end of their project, becoming friends. I also love seeing a house transformed into their dream home and the joy that it brings. It never gets old! 

Life passions: 

The things that make me tick, my life passions, come down to two main pillars of who I am. The first, and most important, is family. I believe family time and a work/life balance is tantamount to having a fulfilled life.

My second focus in life is learning. I love to gain knowledge, whether that be reading books or learning new skills. My friends say I “collect hobbies”. From woodworking and furniture building to sailing and cycling, I am always looking for new and exciting ways to enrich my life. I especially enjoy when I’m able to include my son in the adventure! 

My proudest accomplishment:

My proudest accomplishment comes right back to family. My son. From the moment he was born, he became the most important thing in my life, and he continues to make me proud.

Biggest inspiration:

My biggest inspiration in life has been my mother. She taught me the value of hard work and to never give up! That perseverance in the face of adversity is something I try to live up to every day. 

Most likely to find me:

Working with my hands. From wrenching on my motorcycles and bicycles to building furniture in my wood shop or doing yard work, I love making things and fixing things. I am a “Maker”. That’s why I love this job so much. I enjoy having a hand in the beautiful transformations of our clients’ homes. Seeing the joy that comes from delivering a perfect new kitchen, a place where families will make memories for years to come, is very rewarding. 

Favorite travel destination :

Colorado. We spent time there a few times a year all throughout my childhood. I came to love the mountains, the fresh air, and the outdoor culture. It is and will always be my favorite place to go when I’m able to have some time away for myself.
