The family atmosphere at Sachse Construction is very unique. I also enjoy learning more about the city of Detroit, such as its history, infrastructure, and the direction of where its heading.
- What do you like to do in your free time?
We have three kids, all under six years old, so spending time with them is my favorite hobby. In my free time, I enjoy running and training for races.

- Which principle from Sachse’s Principles of Service resonates the most to you and why?
“Have the Personal Touch” – I enjoy getting to know the many different people I encounter every day. From clients, to architects, to trade partners…it’s critical to understand the people you work with to tailor your communication style to their personality. Being able to relate to other people and having that personal connection makes work more enjoyable for me.
