“I love working on developing projects from the ground up, especially things that have never been done before. After spending over half of my professional career working in the manufacturing field for Fortune 500 companies I found myself at a crossroads where I needed to find the right balance between work and family. I needed a change and knew Woodard & Curran from when I was a client, recalling how the firm handled projects and most importantly its culture.  After almost 10 years, things have changed in terms of growth, but not in our dedication to rise to each new challenge we come across.”
