What's been the most valuable development experience for you at Sterling?

“I've found that being in a position where I have the opportunity to take on greater responsibility as soon as I'm ready for it has accelerated my professional development. Being in a position where you are trusted, and often needed, to tackle new challenges has allowed me to grow as an individual and within my role here. I appreciate that the level of responsibility I have tracks with my development—it encourages me to keep improving so as to be counted on more. And I think that progress loop is tighter at a smaller, very team-centric firm.”
