My name is Alexia Ralphs and I am the Acting President of the WIT CM Club. One of my interests/passion is networking. I absolutely love meeting new people and knowing different people is one of the most important things for our careers.
I joined the club so that I could meet more people who had the same interests and passion as I do in the construction industry. I plan on bringing an upbeat and exciting personality that will make people want to get involved as well.
I am a very approachable person which is great when it comes to interviews so I hope to make people feel more comfortable and confident within the construction industry.

My name is Julia Gravano and I am the current Vice President for the Facilities Management sector of the CM Club. When I was looking to attend Wentworth, I like to say that the construction/facilities industry found me. I came into school with little knowledge and joined to club to further expand it beyond the classroom. In additional, I love to meet new people and thought it would be the perfect opportunity to network. I became an active board with the intent to be an informative and approachable resource for students who have questions or passions about the facilities management industry. I love that the department has the opportunity for students to learn about two industries that are closely associated. I love being helpful and want to bring fun ideas and field trips to the table for members to attend. Many students don’t take advantage of the great opportunities we as a club provide because the first big step is to be involved. Feel free to email me any questions, concerns or comments!

My name is Meredith Borden, I’m a freshman majoring in Construction Management with a concentration in Facilities Management. I became involved in the club because I wanted to be more connected with my major. Through my involvement, I hope to help others learn more about CM as well as learn more myself through the connections which are made with peers and in the CM industry. I first became interested in Facilities Management as a kid because of my mom who is a facility project manager and joining on site visits to many job sites. Being raised around that I was hooked. I hope to encourage more students to participate, bring new ideas, and help organize the club’s events and activities as well as meet new people in the Construction Management or Facilities Management field.
