About Sean:

What do you like about the construction industry? What sparked your interest to consider construction for a career?

Growing up I enjoyed building/constructing all sorts of things. As I grew older I would help my friends & family with their home remodels & renovations. I became further interested in the construction field after my first year at The University of Cincinnati. After spending a year in the business school I knew I was not fulfilling my career aspirations, and decided to switch to the Construction Management program.

 What did you learn about Miller-Valentine during your co-op time?  What are a few positive experiences you can share about your co-op time at MV?

During my time as a co-op, I had the opportunity to be a part of many projects, allowing me to grasp the wide range of projects that Miller-Valentine Construction executes.

 I enjoy the team I work with every day.  We know how to have fun and get work done. I am excited to start my career with Miller-Valentine, and look forward to contributing to our growth and success!

 Why Miller-Valentine?

The team at Miller-Valentine are great to work with. We have a positive culture, and I feel it is a great place to grow and learn. Also, after spending time with companies in Kentucky and Georgia in other co-op positions, I knew that I wanted to be in Ohio, and more specifically Cincinnati. This is a great city, and I enjoy being a part of the growth.
