How long have you been in the industry and what drew you to a career in construction?
I had an extensive career in the public sector as a graduate, progressing to senior executive. I am thrilled about my transferable skills and the exciting times ahead at O’Shea and Sons Builders. I was born into a building family so the perfect fit.
What has been your biggest career achievement so far?
Being senior executive including Chief Financial Officer of a large organisation before I was 30 years old was a significant achievement. During my time in the public sector I managed massive innovation, transformation and leading edge project.
What are your professional goals for 2023?
Personally, the career shift is giving myself time and being present for my teenagers. My husband has been great support and now I am playing it forward. Professionally, I cannot wait to learn more and be part of such an engaging
