Patricia Palmiere

What’s your secret talent that no one knows about?
I know how to eat fire and can teach just about anyone to do it.

What is your favorite project you worked on and why?
That’s like asking about a favorite child! I have two: the Longfellow Bridge because it was incredible to be part of such an important, public project. Every time I see it, drive under it, ride over it on the red line, I am so proud to have had a part of its restoration. And Thompson Hall at UNH. Both because the scope of the project itself was challenging and interesting and because I developed friendships with the owner, architect, and engineer that we maintain to this day – and the project was completed in 2006!

How did you get into construction?
I went to school for Classics, Ancient Civilizations. I started as a Project Admin and loved what I saw all around me, so I took Construction Management classes at Wentworth, had some amazing mentors help me, and eventually worked my way into project management. Along the way, I’ve also worked for a subcontractor and an architecture firm, and have a good perspective on the various facets of the industry as a result.

What is one thing on your bucket list and will you accomplish it?
I absolutely must see Mount Fuji in Japan. I hope to accomplish that one day!

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
Not sure if it’s the craziest, but it tends to be the most unexpected: I used to play roller derby. There’s something very satisfying about playing such a physical game. My name was Wynonna Thudd, and I’ve actually written to Wynonna Judd to tell her about it.
