Q: What are your primary responsibilities as a dispatcher with Berg?
A: With multiple projects and crews working in the field on a daily basis, I work to make sure that everyone has the equipment and trucks they need to get the job done. From scheduling mobilizations to scheduling subcontractors’ trucks, my phone is always ringing. I also coordinate equipment rentals when we need additional resources or if a machine is down.
Q: What matters most to you when it comes to your job?
A: My top priority is communication with all the stakeholders within the company to make sure that they have the tools to do their tasks every day. The ability to multitask and be flexible is the biggest trait that I must rely on every day. I am part of the team that is responsible for a large multimillion-dollar fleet, and I need to make sure that we utilize the fleet to its full potential.
Q: How did you get into this industry?
A: I worked for my parents’ company — Berg Brother Firewood & Logging — growing up. After high school, I worked with my brother Colt at Berg Paving for seven years. When Berg Construction and Berg Paving merged in 2019, I remained with the company. When a dispatcher position became available, I chose to transition from the field to an office-based position.
Q: Who do you look up to in life?
A: My grandparents and parents provided a great example for me to emulate as people to follow in their footsteps. Both of my grandfathers were pastors, and my parents’ work ethic is second to none.
Q: How do you like to spend your free time away from work?
A: I have played soccer since my youth and still enjoy playing as time allows on the weekends. It has gotten tougher to fit this in with my husband Andy and my first child, who was born in 2020.
