At Ariosa & Company, Sara Johnson’s main role is as service department coordinator. An avid learner, Johnson continues to expand into other areas of the construction business, including project management, accounting, and accounting. Johnson also serves on ABC’s Women in Construction Committee (WABC).
How did you get involved with WABC?
As a former BCPS high school math teacher, I was looking for a professional trade organization committee in which my prior experiences and skills would be of use. I was immediately drawn to WABC and the ABC Education & Training Committee based on their commitment to not only enhancing opportunities for women in the field of construction, but also a dedication to supporting the future of construction through local high schools and training programs.
What’s your passion as a WABC member?
My passion as a WABC committee member is centered around outreach and
providing female students exposure to the limitless possibilities offered by a
career in construction. My experiences in the classroom allow a unique
perspective on how to connect with teachers, counselors, and students in order
to foster an interest in a field that is frequently overlooked by women.
What are your goals for the construction industry?
I look forward to working with WABC to continue to provide students with field trip opportunities to visit active job sites and the chance to network with women in different aspects of construction. It is my hope that through our events and relationships with Maryland schools, students will continue to take advantage of the WABC Scholarship and mentorship opportunities. Together we strive to move towards decreasing the workforce shortage and capitalize on the incredible potential that lies within the young people of our neighborhoods.
