Commercial Construction Project Manager

How UTSA best prepared me for what I do now?

 “My UTSA mentor helped so much with making future decisions. After speaking with my mentor, I decided a degree in Public Administration would provide the business background needed to work in “business” but also provide vast knowledge in policy, urban planning, development, etc.  While studying Public Administration at UTSA, two of my favorite papers I wrote were about zoning restrictions and the need for policy and the Edwards Aquifer and water restrictions. Many people do not realize the amount of research and coordination that goes into water policy to ensure sustainability of our critical water resources infrastructure.  My education in public administration has helped me understand the due diligence required prior to ground-up construction projects.”
