What is your personal 'WHY' that has lead you to VEC?

Working in an industry where things are done the way they have always been done, it was hard to imagine change actually happening. Especially when coming from an industry where processes, innovation and new technology were a driving factor to making a difference. But I never wanted to settle for ‘what is’, but push the boundaries to see ‘what can be’. So that’s when leveraging technology to help redefine processes and make a positive difference in the industry became one of my goals. That’s when I was introduced to VEC, a company whose vision  aligned with mine, a company that gave me a voice to make the change I wanted to see, a company that wants to truly make a difference in this world.


What is your favorite VEC customer success story and/or what is your proudest moment working on a project at VEC?

One of my proudest moments working on a project here at VEC was when the onsite team gathered together, collaborated and came up with an innovative solution to a problem a customer was having on their job site. The team and the technology were deployed onsite and the solution was then successfully executed, saving the customer time and money. This solution was then added to our suite of onsite services and has been executed on multiple projects since then.


What is your favorite memory with the VEC team?

Being invited to the company retreat to Lake Tahoe within my first week of joining the company. Here is where I got to meet everyone and witness first hand how each employee and their family were appreciated by VEC. This was the moment I knew VEC was where I belonged.
