I started working for my dad at Apex in March of 2015. After a year of working on the production floor and learning as much as I could in the plant, I moved into the office. While I was learning to design and estimate jobs, I also learned how to work the office and how scheduling deliveries and jobs for production worked. I am going on year 3 in the truss world, and I really enjoy it. Now with Truss Tales I get to see so many different ways of doing things inside the plant and I am starting to find even more excitement in what we do every day!
