Why did you choose this career/what purpose does this work fulfill in your life?
This career picked me. I originally started with Clark Builders in 2001 as a receptionist, and from there, I gained more responsibility and transitioned into my current role. The irony is that I wanted to be an architect growing up, so I consider this career path the closest I’ll come to be one.
