Laura serves as our scheduling coordinator. She schedules the inspection for each of our estimators, contacting homeowners, property managers, and anyone else to craft a perfect schedule.
Laura has lived all over the United States and in England. Outside of work, you can find her spending time with her husband of 28 years and their 2 children and cat. You can often find her at the beach, local venues and events, or checking out the closest rock and heavy metal concert.
Amanda coordinates engineering inspections and files, helps with reports and estimates, completes invoicing, and assists with file coordination throughout the various phases of our files.
Outside of work, Amanda loves to hike, go to the beach, or just find a quiet spot to read a book outside. She loves going to the movie theater to catch the latest movies, and loves to travel wherever and whenever possible.
Jennifer handles everything from the coordination of our files to sending out our estimates, and everything in between. She’s our newest team member at Triad and we’re so grateful to have her.
After work, you can find Jennifer going for a run or competing in races, trying to beat her personal record. She loves to go camping, kayaking or to amusement parks with her family and friends. If she’s not outdoors, you can find Jen painting, sculpting, or otherwise crafting beautiful art!
