Get to Know: Gage Brothers Drafter Laurel Lioi
Laurel is one of the recent additions to the Gage Brothers drafting department. The Sioux Center (Iowa) native graduated from Western Christian High School before attending Western Iowa Tech Community College in Sioux City. She studied Architectural Construction and graduated with an Associate’s Degree in Applied Science.
Laurel relocated to Texas in the 1980’s to find a job and settled in Plano, just northeast of Dallas. She has worked in the field of concrete for the duration of her career, from forming and shoring, to precast concrete. She moved back to the Midwest last August just in time for that long winter that never seemed to end.
Laurel lives in Sioux Falls with her mother and daughter, Tara. She enjoys working at Gage Brothers and living close to her family once again.
We’re glad to have Laurel as a member of the Gage Brothers team!
