What is your position within your company?
I am marketing and business development manager for Columbia Roofing & Sheet Metal, Tualatin, Ore.

What is the most unusual roofing project of which you have been a part?
In 2016, my company completed a four-layer tear-off project. Building codes typically only allow two layers, so it was a unique project.

Why did you become involved in the roofing industry?
My father founded Columbia Roofing & Sheet Metal in 1996 after working as a roofing professional for years. I started by cleaning the shop and office to earn summer money. I've stuck around because I love the genuine, hardworking people I get to work with and meet every day.
