SSRG would not be the company it is today without its incredible staff. Each month we highlight one member from our team with a Q&A session. This month, get to know one of our newest Project Engineers, Kristin Carson, who is part of the Masonry Division. What is your personal philosophy? “You get what you work for, not what you wish for.” What is your favorite aspect (so far) of working at SSRG? I’m really enjoying the variety! There’s always something new on my radar. The team I work with also ranks pretty high on my list of favorite parts of SSRG. What would you do for a career if you weren’t doing this? That’s such a hard question! I think I would be an artist. Tell us something that might surprise us about you. I almost have my private pilot’s license! It’s a fun hobby. What is your favorite project that you’ve been a part of? Since I’m just starting week 4, I don’t have a great answer for this. Check back in a few months and I’m sure I’ll have a better answer! What has changed the most in the industry across your career? Coming to SSRG, I kind of jumped to a new industry altogether. I had been working as a civil engineering consultant, so, for me, everything has changed. I’m excited to see plans like what I used to put together come to life. It will/already has been a great learning experience! What do you like to do on your days off? I like to be active! Whether that’s going for a run, hiking, walking my dog, going to the gym, or power walking (okay, it’s actually shopping) at the mall, I enjoy it all! Also, my husband and I bought a house last year, so you’ll find me slowly working through some renovations. What advice would you give to a young professional in this industry? Say “yes” even when you’re uncomfortable. It’s the best way grow! What 3 people would you invite to a dinner, living or dead? This is a boring answer, but I would invite my best friends! We all grew up in Missouri, but are spread around the US right now (Boston, Virginia Beach, and L.A.), and I would love to get everyone together! What would be the title of your autobiography? I would never write an autobiography! It’s way too personal and would be short and not very exciting, frankly.
