When Diana Skellenger graduated from the University Of Texas with a degree in Public Relations she never imagined a career in construction would be in her future. On this episode of Hazard Girls, Host Emily Soloby shares an amazing conversation with Diana who recounts her incredible journey to her position as CEO and Founder of Skelly Build. Skelly Build is a residential and commercial construction firm in Austin Texas, where 12 out of 16 construction employees are women. Diana and Emily talk about the unique and all-too-common challenges of being a woman in a male-populated industry, and how that differs from life at her firm. She also touches on balancing her roles as CEO, wife and mother, her many career accomplishments, and some hard-earned advice for women looking for a career in construction.
