As a Building Inspector, Eileen's job is to ensure that new construction, additions, and renovations are built according to state and city building and fire codes. Her duties include reviewing applications, conducting pre-approval inspections, researching codes and properties, and inspecting work for compliance. Eileen started working as a Building Inspector in 2015, taking the post after 27 years as a union carpenter.
Education is a large part of her work. "I try to help people comply with the code," Eileen says. "I explain code to them the best I can." Her job is "all about safety. I'm making sure that those responsible have all the safety components in place for occupancy."
Eileen spends much of her free time with her granddaughters.
