About CLJ Consulting

Cassandra’s construction career started in the family business at a young age of 13 where she learned the ins and outs of the industry and developed a hard work ethic only a construction worker could have – by the time she was ready for college she had acquired extensive work experience in every phase of construction from administration to field operations. Her next journey would be in contracting; where she learned detailed administrating and reporting skills from how to manage day to day operations and support the field.

Her leadership skills are grounded in a strong working knowledge of real life staff responsibilities and common roadblocks.

A lifelong learner, Cassandra has proven her skills on the regulatory side of the industry. She worked with ADOT where she initiated a comprehensive, on-site protocol review and developed a highly effective training curriculum for field construction office managers for Disadvantaged Business Enterprises and On The Job Training.

Cassandra has a unique ability to build and maintain relationships with all levels of industry professionals from subcontractors, suppliers, clients and field office personnel. Her broad range and detailed skills have brought her to establish CLJ Construction Consulting

I first met Cassandra during an audit on one of our Federal construction projects. During our first meeting, I was impressed by her knowledge of the construction industry and her willingness to work with me to ensure I was keeping my company in compliance with the Federal mandates. Since our first meeting 6 years ago, I have called upon Cass’s expertise to help with OJT and workforce compliance issues. Cassandra is very detail oriented and has been available to me anytime I call.

I would recommend CLJ Construction Consulting to people who are looking for a trustworthy person with expert knowledge of compliance in the construction industry. She has worked for both the public and private sector which brings a confidence that she on top of her game!
