Ground Up Careers is focused on inspiring a new Skilled Trades Workforce and raise awareness to the careers that exist in this amazing trade.
I LOVE CONSTRUCTION.
Everything starts with construction. I have been in the industry my entire life and I believe there are unlimited opportunities to build a career in construction.
Whenever I walk around a big city, drive over a beautiful bridge or visit a great restaurant I cannot help but appreciate the hard work it took to create places we all get to enjoy. The best part of construction for me is the ability to stand back and say “I Built That”.
Not everyone can drive on a road, look at a house or a commercial building and experience the pride knowing you had your part in creating the world we live in. I think there is something very special about working in construction and I hope that our business will inspire the next generations to build a career in construction.
I fell into this industry.
And I am so glad I did. Construction became the fabric of my career with Oakley Retail (yea the sunglasses). Was mentored and surrounded by an amazing construction division who began teaching me the ropes. I was exposed to the world that we all take for granted.
The trades were not new to me. My upbringing was in the automotive industry with a grandfather who was a mechanic and my father as well. Through most of college I was wrenching while going doing my studies. Learned how important our trade professional careers are to this world.
My passion is to turn careers on its head. Show the amazing professions that exist in construction and how they can shape and grow. The time is now to slow the debt race to education and start building careers from the GROUND UP.
