From 2013-2018 I worked intensively in the commercial construction field as a Project Manager and Director of Sales for two of the largest flooring and tile subcontractors in the country. I gained valuable experience and knowledge in managing multiple projects at one time while persistently pursuing new projects for my customers.
Being from the area, I have known Scott Philips for almost 15 years. When the opportunity arose to work for Premier Building Systems in April of 2018, I knew I wanted to be a part of this company. Scott has built a great company over the past 23 years and thus far it has been a wonderful experience working with our team and our amazing customers. The transition from subcontractor to general contractor has provided me with opportunities to be more involved with every aspect of a project. We have all of the tools and knowledge to bring our customer’s visons to fruition which is what I love most.

I joined the Premier family during the summer of 2017. I’ve spent many years in the medical field and Premier has been a welcoming change from what I’ve been accustomed to. We pride ourselves on our customer service but what stands out just as much to me is that we all work together and help each other out when needed whether it’s work related or not. I have a young son who reminds me daily not to walk through life but to dance through it. When I’m not working I’m exploring new places, cheering on my son at his baseball practices/games, or anywhere near water. I look forward to growing with Premier each and every day.
