A big Congratulations goes out to Lina Castro for her installation as Board Secretary of NAWIC (National Association of Women in Construction) Tampa. Castro will also serve as chair of the Professional Development and Education Committee too. This role will work to spread education and awareness of the organization, partner with other groups and advance the Tampa chapter. Castro will also serve as the co-chair of the WIC ( Women in Construction) week committee. WIC week is nationally recognized in the first week of March. It highlights women as viable components of the construction industry.
Castro is a Project Manager at InVision Advisors (IVA). That firm is an Owner’s Representative firm that provides oversight on construction and building projects in Tampa Bay and beyond. IVA is the solution for individuals and organizations who don’t have the time, knowledge or staff to manage the design and construction process. They coordinate many aspects of the building process between the owner and all other entities. This heavy lift allows for attention to detail throughout the entire building process, things they are experts in that the owners may not have the expertise to oversee.
Castro says these new roles are career highlights for her and continue to position her to grow her career and build relationships in a business she’s grown to really treasure. She enjoys advocating for the women in the industry and this will help her to continue to do so.
