Katie Izdebski, Project Manager
What do you love about the construction industry?
There is so much to learn. You could spend 20 years in this industry and learn something new every day.
Advice you would give other women entering our field?
Speak up, get out in the field and ask questions. While progress is being made, this industry is still developing when it comes to women in construction. But that doesn’t mean you should stay quiet and fly under the radar. It’s your career….might as well get as much out of it as possible!
Your favorite project to date and why?
MSU Business College Pavilion – It was incredibly complex and challenging… lots of blood, sweat and tears went into it! The end result was so beautiful, it made it worth all the effort we put in. It was very satisfying to see students start using the space and overhear them complimenting the building.
What professional organizations are you a part of or recommend?
AGC (Associated General Contractors), PMI (Project Management Institute)
What are your hobbies or what do you like to do in your spare time?
Puzzles, cooking, working out, and video games.
