Can you tell us a bit about yourself?

I enjoy spending time with family and friends in addition to being an avid golfer of any type of golf, either on the links or disc golf course. I am also a Wisconsin Badgers fan.

I joined Westphal & Company as a Project Manager in May of 2017 directly after college and started working with Randy Wileman on Cupertino projects at Badger Road and then into the Edgerton facility.

I attended the University of Wisconsin Madison and earned a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering with an emphasis in Construction Management. After meeting with Westphal & Company at a career fair on campus, I decided this was the best career fit for me and joined shortly after graduation as a Project Manager.

I like the ever-changing challenges of Construction Management, from building hospitals to solar farms to modular electric rooms for data centers. It always keeps you on your toes and fulfills my competitive nature to always be improving and succeeding at the jobs that I’m involved with.
