Tell me about your history working for Essex General Construction.

My career at Essex began 19 years ago when I was hired as a receptionist/administrative assistant. I was the first-person people saw when they visited our office and the first person they spoke to when they called. There were no direct dial numbers back then.

I’ve worked at Essex for 18 years but have worked with Essex’s President Jon Texter on and off since 1976.
