What's been the most valuable development experience for you at Sterling?
“My entire experience with Sterling has been one of professional and personal growth, and I'm very grateful to those around me for helping facilitate that development. My intention out of college was to spend a couple years at Sterling (and in Cleveland) as a pit stop on my eventual journey to medical school. However, I quickly became engrossed in the fast-paced, dynamic, and rewarding project-based work environment. I never expected to have the growth opportunities that Sterling has presented (and continues to present)—in my time here, I've developed a wide range of soft and hard skills that have made me a better manager of projects and people. I truly value all the feedback I've received over the years, and I strive to help create a workplace that fosters and encourages growth for others.”
