Preconstruction Services Manager
As a Preconstruction Services Manager, my efforts at LCK are focused on the front-end phases of project management. My expertise in estimating, cost management and value analysis is leveraged to accelerate the planning and design phases of our projects.
I have the ability to prepare line-item estimates with a high degree of accuracy at all design phases of a project, which means that our clients can plan their projects with confidence from the beginning and rely on us to monitor the project and program budgets throughout all design iterations.
I have provided cost management services as both a member of a construction management team and an independent cost consultant, giving me a unique perspective that serves as a value add to LCK clients. I take pride in focusing on accuracy and detail-orientation, to ensure that our clients can rely on my work throughout the project timeline. Nothing pleases me more than working closely with clients and seeing their vision become reality.
Prior to joining LCK, I led the estimating and cost management efforts for multiple publicly-funded building programs that totaled more than $500 million. I am the recipient of the 2018 Colliers | SC and LCK Management Services Award.
As a parent who has adopted two of my children, I am passionate about supporting foster care and adoption. As a result, I support legislative reform activities surrounding foster care and adoption in South Carolina.
My professional background includes work in construction management, material supply and cost management. I have worked with and for a diverse portfolio of clients, providing detailed estimates, budgetary studies, third-party estimate and budget review, value engineering, reconciliation, bid analysis and change order validation. I graduated from Clemson University in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in Construction Science and Management. During my time in college, I also earned a 30-hour OSHA card in Construction Safety and Health. Since graduation, I have also earned the Certified Cost Professional (CCP) designation from AACE International.
