This summer I worked as an Assistant Project Manager Intern at Miller Electric Company in Omaha. During my time at Miller as an Intern I have vastly improved my knowledge of the electrical side of the construction industry. Currently I am going into my senior year at the University of Nebraska Lincoln at Omaha for a Construction Management degree. I currently work alongside the estimating, field, and project management teams to help run various projects around the Omaha area predominantly downtown.

I have attained a lot of experience in estimating since my main role is to manage and price change orders for projects such as the Douglas County Justice Center and Gene Leahy Mall downtown. Adjusting to the subcontractor side of construction was interesting since we are mostly taught about the general contractor side in school. I have learned a lot for my internship at Miller Electric and I hope to learn even more about the construction industry as I advance in my career.
