In honor of Women In Construction Week, we wanted to take this opportunity to celebrate and provide inspiration.
We are kicking off the celebration by highlighting the story of our very own KB Home employee Adrienne Hesselfeldt. She has been in this business for 18 years and believes that “if you keep a positive attitude and give your all, you will be successful.” And this certainly shows in her contributions and achievements.
While at KB, Adrienne has worked as a Design Studio consultant, a plan manager in Purchasing, construction superintendent in Operations and customer service in Operations and now finds herself a forward planner in Land Development. “It has been exciting to be provided many opportunities. There is nothing more satisfying than building a customer a home and seeing the look of sheer delight when they close and their home is everything they imagined.”
When asked why she chose a non-traditional field, Adrienne’s response is always the same. “I love the challenge of proving that if you put your mind to something you can achieve it; through adversity, determination and the sheer will of believing in yourself even when you are told you cannot be successful in a field dominated by men. If you want it bad enough you can achieve it if you believe in yourself.”
