Shelby Powell

We asked Shelby...

If you really know me, you'd know...
I have a book problem, I buy more books than I need. You could say that I have no shelf control.
What are you happiest doing when you're not working?
Being outside, at the lake or on my patio with a good book soaking up the sunshine.
What is a problem in the Engineering & Construction Industry you'd like to fix?
I would love to see our world transition to treating the built environment as a work of art instead of a step and repeat. What we create is going to last decades and impact future generations, so it is so important to be passionate about the work we are doing. While it might be more expensive to include green space and clean initiatives and to create aesthetically pleasing buildings, in the long run, those are the projects that are recorded in history. We see it in high rises occasionally, but I would like to see it in every building.
If I weren't so good at my job, I'd probably be...
In politics, running for Mayor or Governor trying to make a difference for the place I live and love.
What is the accomplishment of which you're most proud?
Personally, I am proud that I graduated from college with no student loan debt. I worked my butt off in school to keep my scholarship for four years and in the last two years of school, I worked two jobs to cover the cost of tuition, fees and personal bills. Professionally, I am proud of how far I have come in the industry despite the setbacks and challenges I faced. I continue to work hard and FSO.
What are you most passionate about personally? Professionally?
Personally, I am passionate about equality. It has plagued my family and they have not all had equal opportunities presented to them. This is one thing that drives me to want to spread the little knowledge I have because maybe it will help someone and make a difference in their life. Professionally, I am passionate about being involved in my company and truly understanding all the facets of business and why the company operates the way it does, what makes it tick and why we choose the strategies that we do.
