“PWC CT connects me in so many ways to the broader community. The networking keeps me afloat! Membership is a priority to me.”

Lee Ann Sullivan | President, Lion's Head Cost Consultants, Inc.

“I have always been a person who likes to give back and pay it forward. My PWC-CT involvement allows me to share my experiences with new and emerging professionals and empower them through the awards program. PWC-CT also gives me the opportunity to meet people and stay current on community and industry trends.”

Roxanne Perugino | Project Manager, STV | DPM

“Vision, Mission and Values: Sitting in a room with other highly skilled, dynamic and respected professionals, assuring PWC-CT continues to be a leader in providing quality programming, meeting member needs and making an impact on the youth of today is quite an honor.”

Patty Bilotto, CPSM | Manager, Marketing & BD, van Zelm Engineers

“Working with and enabling children to be their best is dear to me. Although PWC doesn’t work with children, we provide young adults with crucial guidance and support during the formative years of establishing their construction careers with both the Mentor and Scholarship programs. There is nothing better than paying forward and PWC does this.”

Laurann Asklof | Principal, Shipman & Goodwin, LLP

“I joined the PWC-CT, and later served on the Board, because it provided me the opportunity to further advocate for women and the underrepresented in this industry. Through PWC, I meet and engage with individuals from different backgrounds all working towards the same goal – safe project completion and client satisfaction. ”
