  • What is your role at Hewitt Young Electric?

At Hewitt Young, I am a Project Estimator. An Estimator identifies labor and material needed for a project and computes costs of a project by gathering proposals, blueprints, specifications, and related documents.

  • How long have you been with Hewitt Young?

I have been employed at Hewitt Young for a total of 5 years.

  • What do you like most about your job?

The best part of my job would have to be putting an effort into a takeoff, making the total dollar figure for the project, then waiting for the win! When we win a bid it feels like winning the lottery.

  • What do you enjoy most about working at Hewitt Young?

I love the trust and support we receive from management. We are trusted to perform to the best of our ability without constantly being watched over.

  • Why do you think customers do business with us?

I believe customers do business with us because of our performance and a great finished product.

  • How do you define success?

Success to me is defined as any accomplishment that you are proud of.

  • What do you like to do outside of work?

Outside of work I typically spend more time working! I do also enjoy relaxing and going to Green Day concerts.

  • What has been your favorite project at Hewitt Young?

My favorite project completed by Hewitt Young would have to be the SUNY Brockport East Campus Site with Villager.

  • If you could pick one theme for Hewitt Young to turn into a book about the company what would it be?

If we were to write a book about Hewitt Young, the title would be “As HYE Turns,” it would be funny, cutting edge, full of advantages, and about a winning team.

  • What is on your wish list for the next 10 years with Hewitt Young?

My wish would be to have HYE purchase a concrete curb machine and some asphalt machinery.

  • What is your favorite line from any movie?

“That’s the way the cookie crumbles!”

  • If you had one meal to eat for the rest of your life what would it be?

I would be happy eating spaghetti and meatballs with lots of mozzarella for the rest of my life. I love my cheese!

  • Is the glass half empty or half full?

Half full and always accepting more.
