Starting at an early age, Angela had big dreams for herself. She either wanted to be a truck driver or a brain surgeon…instead she ended up in the family business of construction. Angela began at age 12 helping her dad, Mike Roach, with estimating. Mike would measure the different wall types and Angela would write the numbers on the spreadsheets and do the math. She learned from an early age how to use a 10 key. She worked with her mom, Pam Roach, and brother, Victor Roach, to stock and clean up jobs.
Angela then became a paid employee in 1983 as a receptionist at our NE Portland office. She learned payroll, accounts payable, accounts receivable and other accounting related tasks. She eventually learned some estimating and did project manage one large project, One Oak Plaza.
The biggest influences in Angela’s life are her parents, Mike and Pam. She derives her sense of humor and love for relationships from her Dad. She gets her numbers acumen from her Mom. Overall, she has developed her conservative business approach from over 45 years of experience of living the family business.
Angela would say her greatest success is her daughter, Hailey. Hailey recently graduated from the University of Puget Sound and will be pursuing a graduate degree in the near future. Angela currently has 16 animals and has volunteered for many years at the Oregon Humane Society. She loves being an Aunt to Victor’s children and enjoys family road trips to see the US.
