Annie Sadler (B.S. Information Technology ’11) is making moves as a woman in the male-dominated fields of technology and construction.
A lover of project management and all things behind-the-scenes, she currently works at a medium-sized family-owned construction business in Colorado in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. She is a part of the company’s in-house IT department and also works with graphic design.
Unfortunately, being a woman in IT usually breeds some unwarranted challenges. Sadler worked hard to create credibility for herself at her job.
She explains, “As time goes on I build more and more credibility for me as a woman and technician, but it did not start out like that.”
During her time at FSU, Sadler learned the ins and outs of information technology and also learned how to succeed in the real world. She also participated in Greek Life as a member of the Alpha Delta Pi sorority.
To students at FSU, she offers this advice: “You attend an amazing university surrounded by wonderful people. No one is a jack of all trades; lean on your peers and teachers for help and support. Practicing that habit will only help you succeed in the work force.”
