“In construction, we found it’s hard to get your foot in the door,” says Farris. “In a predominantly male industry, it has been challenging in times past to build our portfolio. However, with persistence and steadfastness, [we] have been successful in building our work experience.” Along the way, Farris has learned that it’s important not to get frustrated as she builds relationships: “Some relationships are short-term, but others are long-lasting.”
