I am delighted to join the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey of the JFK Redevelopment Program. I will collaborate with internal departments and external stakeholders to oversee and solve design and construction problems that arise at Delta Terminal 4. In addition, I will be able to bring my technical, architectural and construction management background to examine and redefine design guidelines and policies to accommodate field constraints.
The Columbia University School of Professional Studies Construction Administration program and the Career Design Lab guided me to understand the caveats and challenges minority women are facing in the industry. They helped me focus on the measurable skill sets and credentials, and connected me with mentors. It is this supportive network that preserved my passion and helped guide me through early career adversities.
Now coming out of this unprecedented pandemic, I am well positioned to lead along with my colleagues and contribute to the world class infrastructure program of the decade.
