TerriUpdated_smallTerri Sobeck, director of administration at Stevens Construction, recently completed a volunteer mentorship for Goodwill Southwest Florida MicroEnterprise Institute.

The Goodwill Southwest Florida MicroEnterprise Institute is a training program created to assist emerging entrepreneurs. Graduates complete a 12-module, six-week business and management training course and work closely with coaches, who are comprised of local professionals with proven success in their industry.

As a coach, Sobeck led four participants in discussions regarding material presented and how it relates to the applicant’s potential businesses. Sobeck also shared advice and resources employed over the course of her professional experience. Sobeck reviewed assignments and evaluated feasibility plans submitted throughout the program by participants to complete the course requirements.

As director of administration at Stevens Construction, Sobeck manages the accounting systems, project administration, and maintains the company’s records, policies and procedures for all three office locations.
