I joined JMT as a junior project manager and was offered the exciting challenge of developing a structures group for JMT's Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania office. My first project assignment with JMT was a design build project that involved the widening of several interstate highway bridges in Orlando, Florida. At the time, we did not have an office in Florida and I was assigned to a project team that included staff from our Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland, and West Virginia offices. I was new to JMT and was a little concerned on how a project this size could be effectively communicated between offices. It wasn't long before I had gained confidence that JMT is seamless across disciplines and offices. I was impressed with how well our offices worked together and supported each other.
Over the past decade, I have been supported by wonderful mentors and colleagues from various offices within the JMT family. More importantly, I have been very privileged to work with an outstanding staff in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania office, as well as extended staff throughout JMT's offices. Together we have successfully completed projects from small bridge replacements to multi-million dollar bridge preservation projects and developed several award winning projects.
I believe the core to JMT's success is the dedication and hard work of our employees. To maintain this success, our leaders recognize that employees are our company's most valuable asset. Employees are encouraged to take advantage of career development opportunities and to become involved in professional and community organizations. Joining the JMT family was definitely the right career move for me. I look forward to the future challenges and success of JMT as we all reach our personal and professional goals together.
