Today’s spotlight: Tiffany Sharp
Tiffany Sharp, 38, principal of Sharp Construction LLC, based in Phoenix, Arizona, has been managing design and construction teams and projects since 2005. She’s an Arizona State University graduate for both, her Bachelor and Master degrees in Construction Management. Tiffany founded Sharp Construction as a woman-owned, commercial construction company in 2017. She genuinely has a true passion to build, whether that be projects or people. She’s an accomplished professional, motivated achiever, and visionary leader for the operations and development of her company.
Lesson learned in 2020: “Personally, I found self-care to be more important than ever. It was way too easy to fall into the pattern of rolling out of bed, opening your laptop and working until later hours of the evening without taking the necessary mental and physical breaks to keep you healthy and recharged. Professionally, I better understood the value and importance of in-person connecting to building more solid foundations within your network. I’ve always understood the value of maintaining the relationship within your network, but never quite felt the challenge of that maintenance as I did with the pandemic due to the inability to meet in person.”
Source of pride: “Starting my own company, it’s a dream that I’ve always had. Now that the dream is real, I live and breathe the successes and failures of my company every day. I take pride in the challenges and roadblocks that I’ve had to overcome which have now allowed me to influence the next generation of women in this industry.”
Surprising fact: “I didn’t always know what I wanted to be when I grew up. The answer didn’t come to me easily either. I hate to admit that I spent more years in college than your average person. I switched my major multiple times and finally had a “Come to Jesus” with my school counselor. He said verbatim, “how do we get you graduated and out of here?”. After about seven years, I was able to complete my Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Degree at ASU with a mixture of architecture, structural engineering, business, and construction courses from multiple colleges. School is supposed to fun, right?!”
