Sami R.

Project Manager

I joined the GB Team in 2021 as Project Engineer, adding to my previous five years of experience in the commercial design/build industry. With previously working in commercial design, I wanted to pursue more project management and learn about construction management. My favorite aspect of our work is the satisfaction of my clients with a well-executed project. I enjoy problem-solving, so learning to overcome challenges and planning for the unforeseeable obstacles is an exciting part of my job. 

Working with a like-minded team drew me to the culture at Gardner. Our company core values line up with my own, creating a “big family” environment in our workplace that is important to me. 

Outside of work, my husband and I are beer aficionados and love to try different Twin City breweries. Our labrador/pitty mix pup gets to join our brewery adventures sometimes, too. Entertaining our friends at our home is always a favorite weekend activity, and although I’m not a runner, I’m trying to be and working towards completing a marathon in the future. 

Favorite Tool: Cellphone

Little Known Facts:

My favorite animal is a great white shark. 

I have swum in the Amazon River (I know I should not have immediately after doing it).

I have jumped 44 feet off a cliff into the St. Croix River.
