Morgan Betancourt, project director, Okland Construction 

BACKGROUND: Betancourt manages healthcare projects, life science buildings, and a new sports complex in the greater Phoenix area. She currently serves as the fundraising chair for the ACE Mentors Program Phoenix Affiliate.  She spearheads a women’s group at her current organization where she’s able to mentor, promote, and inspire women in the construction industry.  

SOURCE OF PRIDE: “I am most proud to be part of the construction industry.  The industry has grown very rapidly within the past 10+ year, specifically in Arizona.  The quick industry growth has challenged and accelerated my growth faster than I could have imagined.”

SOURCE OF INSPIRATION: “I’m inspired by women in the construction industry!  In a historically male-dominated industry, women have gone (and continue to go) above and beyond to prove that we belong. The women I’ve met and worked with are passionate, detail oriented, and driven to provide greater representation in the field.”

SURPRISING FACT: “I’ve been known to rip a few hearts out before. During my college days, I interned for an organ donation company where I helped package body organs to ship for medical technology research.”
