Linked In Post- November 2020
Today is a big day! I am forging my own path forward as full time president of Los Angeles Housing Compliance, a women owned small business doing prevailing wage compliance and local hire.
Seventeen years ago, I developed my first local hire program for Century Housing at Century Villages at Cabrillo while working for the GC, Cobalt Construction Company. I wore many hats during my thirteen years at Cobalt but everyone knew what I was best at. Encouraging subcontractors through heartfelt enthusiasm, creating hiring pipelines with community partners, protecting subcontractors against penalties by keeping up to date on PW requirements. Then, as PM for Cannon Constructors Inc., at Jordan Downs in Watts, we accomplished 70% Section 3 Local Hire, employing 43 deserving hyper-local residents and convincing hearts and minds.
I am grateful to have the opportunity to follow my dreams thanks to:
Coalition for Responsible Community Development
National Community Renaissance
Anna Slaby for support and encouragement
National Black Contractors Association
Young Black Contractors Association
Please keep Los Angeles Housing Compliance in mind for your prevailing wage and local hire needs. Thank you! #community #localhire #apprenticeship #losangeles
