If you’ve worked with Leslie you know that one of her many strengths is providing clear and concise communication. Her high-energy, organized, and go-getter personality makes her a valuable asset to all of her project teams.
Leslie has been one of Bush Construction’s biggest cheerleaders, from leading our daily stretch and flex to assisting in any number of our philanthropic efforts. She joined the team in 2016 as a project coordinator and was recently promoted to a senior project coordinator.
What do you do at Bush Construction?
I am the Senior Project Coordinator and am responsible for:
- issuing and tracking contracts.
- spinning up projects in our project management software.
- leading the closeout process for projects that I am the PC on.
- managing team members’ schedules.
- assisting with cost tracking (create/issue/track sub and owner change orders).
- managing our project coordinator/preconstruction coordinator department.
- collaborating across multiple project teams to ensure successful project outcomes.
What’s one professional skill you’re currently working on?
I am currently working on studying for the Construction Industry Technician course through NAWIC.
What’s your go-to productivity trick?
I first prioritize my day then knock out tasks that will take the least amount of time first, and go from there. Headphones – they are also necessary some days!
What’s a work-related accomplishment that you’re proud of?
I am proud to say that before coming to work for Bush Construction I had minimal knowledge of the construction industry. I have been able to be successful and gain so much knowledge working here thanks to a team that welcomes diverse opinions and provides opportunities for growth.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I don’t have a lot of spare time, but when I do I enjoy being outside and anything that involves being with our friends, family, and their kids.
Where do you live?
My husband, Mike, and our son, Graham, currently live in Davenport where we are both from. We recently purchased a property in Blue Grass, Iowa, and are in the beginning stages of building our forever home!
