Tell us about your role at RAM? What do you like most about it?
The document controller is responsible for all incoming and outgoing documents on a project, which includes naming the files properly, performing quality checks, sharing the files with a specific team for each project area, and archiving the documents in a centralized location.
What I like the most is about my role is that we are like a bridge for internal and external communication between contractors, consultants, our engineering team, and the client – I feel that we are an important key to the project launching.
What do you find most challenging at RAM?
Time management is a big challenge for me. We have lots of demand all the time and sometimes it’s hard to keep track of the time. So learning how to prioritize is a key skill in being successful not only in the day to day work, but especially to achieve your goals.
What is your favorite part about working at RAM?
RAM is a great company that has been growing a lot in the last few years. I like that the company is innovative and shares great values and vision and I really enjoy the collaborative environment.
What advice would you give to recent new hires?

What are 3 career lessons you’ve learned this far?
- Always be willing to learn something new. The world changes every second, so do not limit yourself to what you already know and have.
- Do not struggle with things that you can’t control. Try your best and do not be afraid to ask for help.
- I wouldn’t be able to achieve as much if it wasn’t for all the great professionals I met on the way, which I am really grateful for.
What do you like to do on your days off?
I love to venture in outdoors activities, going out for walks at the end of the day, cycling during the summer, snowboarding in the winter, going on hikes, etc. I like gardening, and I always have a new plant at home, because I can’t keep the old ones alive for too long.
