It takes courage to start over in a new industry, but that’s just what makes Annie Tooley good at her job. She was working in the medical field and getting burned out on the anonymity that can be unavoidable in corporate culture. When she heard Rino was looking for help, she leaped at the chance to come on board. “I’m so grateful to be here,” she says. “I came in green, with no experience whatsoever, and that didn’t seem to cause any issues for [Jason].”
Over time Annie’s been able to prove that Jason’s bet on her was a very good one. Her hunger to learn propelled her from that of a novice to being someone who everyone at Rino completely depends on. She loves being there for people and growing the HR and Safety programs. Even more so, she finds Rino refreshing because she can be herself. “We’re very professional,” Annie says, “and we love the work.” “But it’s nice not to have to filter yourself every time you walk through the door.”
Her advice for women who might be interested in construction? “Don’t be afraid! you don’t have to fit a certain mold.”Back to all stories
