Tell us about your role.
I am responsible for Interior and exterior product sales at O&G’s Danbury Masonry Showroom. In my role, I assist homeowners with bathroom design projects and work with architects and contractors on specialty items for fabrication.
How did you get started in the construction industry?
Before working for O&G, I spent five years as an assistant in an architect’s office. But I have always been more interested in being in the field and working with construction materials. When the opportunity to work at an O&G Showroom became available, I knew it was the right fit.
What’s most fulfilling about your role?
Hearing from customers that are very pleased with the outcome of their project and thankful for all help they received.
How does the company support you in your role?
I am lucky to have a great group of coworkers and an excellent manager with experience and resources. I can rely on their help whenever I encounter challenging projects.
What’s been challenging in your role?
Sometimes it can be challenging to find the perfect product that meets the architect’s unique vision. But we have great resources at O&G and can typically find a good fit.
