Jennifer Sproul Named to Top 100 Women
Recently, Maryland’s The Daily Record recognized MCCEI President Jennifer Sproul as one of the Top 100 Women in Maryland. Maryland’s Top 100 Women recognizes high-achieving Maryland women who are making an impact through their leadership, community service and mentoring. Winners are selected by past Top 100 Women and business leaders.
The Daily Record asked Sproul questions relating to the award:
The Daily Record: Why is community service critical to your career and your personal leadership journey?
My community service work is integral to my career and personal leadership journey. My volunteer work in the construction industry, particularly my work surrounding advancing women in construction, led me to my current position at MCCEI. It also gave me the chance to grow my leadership skills when I didn’t have the same opportunities in my day jobs. – Jennifer Sproul
The Daily Record: Self-care connects everything in life: career, interactions and one’s personal life. Is this something you are doing well or is this a goal? What are your secrets if you are succeeding and what are your goals if this is a focus area where you want to learn from others?
At the beginning of the year, I created a vision board for how I want my year to go. Along with professional goals and achievements, I placed self-care items like vacations, the number of books I wanted to read, and time spent with my family. Taking care of myself makes me a better leader, spouse, mother and friend, because I work best from abundance, not lack thereof. – Jennifer Sproul
Sproul has been President of MCCEI since 2020 and in that time has diversified the MCCEI Board of Directors, implemented an internship program for high school students, college and graduate students and apprentices, and has been instrumental in advancing the brand recognition and mission of MCCEI.
