Claudia Garcia

I have been in the construction industry for twelve years, with ten of those years spent in Austin, Texas in the commercial sector.  My interest in construction began with a love for architecture and how materials mesh together.  During my summers in Arizona, I would frequent Taliesin West, The Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture and Museum to admire his work. In high school, I completed a vocational program in Building Trades which provided me with opportunities to receive my OSHA and industry certifications and also compete in Carpentry.  Since then, I have spent time in my career working in the field to what I do now, estimating.
