Class of 2006
Sarah came to Messer Construction Co. in 1999 with no real idea of what she was signing up for, as she never imagined my career would be in construction. But she said there was something powerful about being a part of building the community around you and after just a few months, she was hooked.
As a young single mother, college seemed like just a pipe dream, but when Messer Construction offered their support in 2001, Sarah took it and never looked back.
As the granddaughter of a Professor Emeritus at Xavier University (Paul Rieselman Sr.), Sarah never even considered another university or college. The Xavier Weekend Degree Program (WDP) fit her needs perfectly. The staff in the WDP helped Sarah navigate her four-and-a-half years at Xavier, even after transitioning her focus to accounting. Sarah graduated in 2006 with a B.S. in accounting. Now, she is a proud graduate amidst a family of Muskies.
Since beginning at Messer in 1999, Sarah has held five different positions in the Finance and Administration department in both the field and the office. Most recently, she has accepted a new role in corporate accounting as an Accountant-Technical Analyst, focused on identifying and implementing best practices both with project accounting and the enterprise-wide software system.
