As the Human Resource Manager, my job allows me to focus on one of the most important assets of our company; our employees. My day to day involvement is geared toward employee growth and the effective management of our people to help ValCon gain a competitive advantage in the masonry market! Additionally, I enjoy overseeing employee-benefit design, reward management, training and development. If you don’t create a great, rewarding place for people to work, then they won’t do great work.
Praise is priceless. “Nothing else can quite substitute for a few well-chosen, well-timed, sincere words of praise. They’re absolutely free and worth a fortune.” – Sam Walton, founder of Walmart.
I enjoy being involved with the PM on the day-to-day tracking of the project and working with the budgets, counts and man power. Just being able to help out where I can to learn and to grow within the company and be a better teammate is my favorite part about ValCon.
My favorite project we've ever worked on was Slover Library! This project was an engineering marvel for us. The project site was a postage stamp in downtown Norfolk, requiring cantilevered engineered scaffolding over adjacent properties, and the building's height required creative material handling methods. I'm exceptionally proud of our entire team. This was a true test of our creativity and our innate abilities!
With an entrepreneurial drive and 30 years of masonry industry experience, I incorporated ValCon Masonry in 2011. Prior to ValCon, I was the VP Admin/CFO of a leading commercial masonry contractor for 20 years.
Perhaps the most important thing to know about me and ValCon Masonry are the people and goals we are committed to; our clients, exceptional standards, the quality and responsiveness of our services and our employee’s growth. I am determined to break the mold and replace frustration with fun and smiles. You can’t put a dollar figure on human resources, nor can you appraise the worth of their wide range of professional experiences and backgrounds. Employee satisfaction is in direct relation to client satisfaction. One thing is certain, the intangible benefit they offer every project is priceless. At ValCon, it’s included at no extra charge. By keeping these concerns in mind, ValCon Masonry has become one of Hampton Roads leading commercial masonry contractors.
