Tina Bass - Member Spotlight

Most beneficial part of SMPS to you? SMPS gives you the ability to grow, learn, and network. It’s a great resource that everyone in this industry should be a part of.

What is your favorite part of your job? My first thought was winning a project, but in reality that doesn’t happen every time. You put so much time and effort in projects and sometimes it falls through, but the team aspect of it all and being surrounded by people who are passionate about the work they do and the final product you deliver makes it all worthwhile.

Your best advice to someone entering marketing for the AEC world is... 1) Ask questions  2) Strive to learn more and more each day  3) Have a positive attitude – it goes a long way!

What have been the challenges and rewards of your career? The most challenging of it all is the learning curve of the industry in general – fully understanding the technical aspect of it all. If you spend your days writing proposals for water/wastewater infrastructures you must fully understand the background of the concept. The most rewarding part is seeing the hours and hours spent on developing a proposal and your team being selected for the project. All that passion you had when developing a proposal came through as a win – that’s a great feeling not only for you but for your team!

Best lesson from a mentor? Growth comes from experience and striving to learn more and be better each day.

What do you do in your free time? I love the outdoors. Hiking, kayaking, biking, golf, spike ball, you name it I’m there.

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go? Italy!

What is your favorite movie? Patch Adams – it’s such an inspiration.
