Describe your duties: Conduct safety checks, update working drawings, conduct safety inspections, conduct jobsite safety orientation briefings, inspect existing roof to ensure there is no leakage and be the acting Safety Superintendent.

How does your internship fit into your long-term career goals: Since I was a young child it has been a dream to work in construction and this is a stepping stone to one day becoming a Project Superintendent.

Describe your favorite way to spend your time outside of working this summer: I love spending time with family, doing things outside like riding dirt bikes, playing sports, and attending youth events at church.
