Sundt Benefits Administrator Melanie Healey wants to do everything she can to get more women interested in the construction industry. She will have a good platform from which to accomplish her goal as the new President of the Greater Phoenix Chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC).
Melanie was installed last month after serving as the organization’s Vice President for a year.
NAWIC’s core purpose is to enhance the success of women in the construction industry by providing education and a network of like-minded individuals for support. Among other things, the organization provides scholarships to women pursuing construction-related certificates and degrees in higher education in Arizona, jobsite tours of local and national projects and educational events on a local, regional and national level.
“I am honored and humbled to have been given the opportunity to lead another great year in the Greater Phoenix Chapter of NAWIC,” Melanie said. “I am excited to begin a new year of education, networking, and most of all, fun! We have exciting speakers lined up, a successful networking event with the ASU School of Construction and job tours of some cool projects on the horizon. I appreciate Sundt supporting me on this adventure.”
Melanie has been in human resources and administration for more than 15 years and is a graduate of The Art Institute of Phoenix and Grand Canyon University.
