What is your role in SMPS?

How has SMPS membership helped you?
SMPS is hands down the best organization I have been a part of in my 21+ years in the AEC industry. I always say when I first moved to SLC seven years ago I felt a bit overwhelmed until I joined SMPS. I have made lasting friendships and gained so much from the programs, education events, networking, and learning from great people. Without SMPS I would not be where I am today.

Retirement, traveling the US with my husband, and Italy with my girls.

To be a professional ice skater.

Guilty pleasure: what can you not live without?
Retail therapy (in real stores). Amazon is great but call me old fashioned, I like the physical experience.
