March 2021 marked my fourth year at Foundry. This is the longest I’ve been with a single company since I graduated with a degree in architecture in 2009, and it’s been the most rewarding four years of my career.
Prior to Foundry, I had worked with general contracting firms, and although I studied architecture I have never worked directly in that field. I always felt there was something better though, something to fill this small void, something that would make me want to wake up every day and be energized to take it on, and that’s when I found Foundry…or when Foundry found me. Real estate, in general, had always piqued my interest, but I never really knew about the service line we provide in this industry. Working with Foundry in Project Management has opened up a whole new world for me, and it’s fulfilling to see what we’ve accomplished.
What really attracted me to Foundry is our entrepreneurial style of thinking. I was told in my interview that Foundry is more of a boutique shop, where we have the capability and freedom to pursue various types of projects, where there are no silos, and where we have fun doing what we do alongside a great team. After I started, it didn’t take long to realize just how much I enjoyed working with this team.
This photo is of me attending the Producer Summit in February 2020 in Orlando. These Summits are jam-packed with speeches, information, and learning, but my favorite aspect of the Summit is seeing everyone in person and being around their energy; hence the giant smile on my face.
Foundry is where you’re part of a team and a family. We support each other’s individual endeavors which in turn yields greater success for the team. There aren’t rigid roles and responsibilities; we all pitch in to achieve our goals.
We get in and grind through problems, find opportunities along the way, and come out stronger as individuals, as a team, and as a company. We “Hit the Mark and Go There Together.”
