Company: Pipe Is Our Life Corp.
Location: New York, NY United States
An expert in cleaning up building violations, Deborah Hanson got her start in the industry at a very young age. As a teenager, she became a carpenter helper and worked with her father in his business. After Ms. Hanson’s introduction to carpentry and construction, she decided to learn and increase her skills by taking various trade programs and acquiring various licenses. She followed her passion by opening Pipe Is Our Life Corp., a company that installs sprinklers and HVAC for commercial buildings, schools, hospitals, and high risers.
The biggest challenge Ms. Hanson had to overcome is being a woman in a male-dominated industry. She succeeded because of the support she received from her solid family foundation, and has already begun tackling her next obstacle: talking in front of large groups. Ms. Hanson is motivated by her love for what she does. Looking forward, she would like to open a school to teach sprinkler systems to others.
When Ms. Hanson isn’t working, she enjoys gardening and growing and drying flowers. She supports the missions of Plan B and the Cambodian Mine Field Camps, and is an honored member of The International Women’s Leadership Association, recognized for her contribution to family, career, and community.
