Ivy Stories is a short, occasional feature on Green Light that spotlights current students and/or recent graduates.
Corina Billman is a two-time Ivy Tech grad: In 1999, she earned her degree in Building Construction Technology and, in 2015, in Building Construction Management.
“I started in Construction Technology because I wanted to be a thriving female in the construction industry,” she says.
After graduating the first time, she went into drafting houses but realized she wanted to learn more and expand upon her skill set.
“Going to Ivy Tech boosted my confidence,” Billman says. “I got my foot in the door at some places and with many people, which led to the chain of events to get me where I am today. Confidence is an amazing thing.”
Today, Billman is the lead CAD designer at Bob Buescher Homes.
