Employee Q&A – Colleen Thayer

Colleen Thayer - Project Manager - Syracuse Office

What is your position/title and how long have you been at the company?

I am a Project Manager at NEIS Collective’s (NEIS) New York office. I started back in July 2022, so I’m coming up on my second anniversary here.

What is your favorite part about your job?

My favorite aspect of my job is when I learn new things and the variety in my day-to-day activities. It keeps the job exciting and always challenging.

What are some projects that have made you proud?

Currently, I am enjoying the work we have done for Glens Falls Middle School. It has involved an assortment of products, millwork, and vendors. I have learned a lot during this project and feel like the final result is a success.

What is something about your job that people might not be aware of?

I love going to job sites and love learning from the carpenters regarding what to do and what not to do. They have all been so patient and helpful in teaching me the nuances of casework and especially millwork.

What are your hobbies outside of work?

Outside of work, I love gardening, hiking, and long weekend travels with camping and adventures.
