What’s your favourite DIALOG initiative?
Our yearly United Way campaign. We do a Wine Survivor event with this campaign, and it’s great to see teams come together to find a way to stay on DIALOG island. The bonus of winning a couple of bottles of wine is great too!
If you could work a ‘day in the life’ of another discipline at DIALOG, whose would it be?
Contract Administration. I love being on-site and solving issues throughout the construction phase of a project.
What’s one thing about you that would surprise people?
I have a black belt in karate.
