She was a role model for her younger colleagues as one of the few female supervisors in the construction industry at the time. Later, she was awarded the Outstanding Employee Award for managing a construction site where more than 100 craftsmen came in and out each day. She also became the first female construction engineer in the company to hold a managerial position.
