Meet Ginger Camp, the newest member of our Transportation Team!


Q: Tell us a bit about yourself.

Ginger: I have lived in Western Illinois most of my life. My husband, Neil, and I live on a small farm outside of Avon, IL, with our two daughters. I stay busy coaching and watching our girls play sports. I received my bachelors degree from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, in Horticulture, and I love to tend to my indoor and outdoor plants.

Q: Why did you want to become a Technician?

Ginger: When I decided to make a change in professions, I knew I wanted to do something in the construction industry. The technician position seemed like a great fit for me. I enjoy working outside and staying active as well as using my communication and data collection skills.

Q: What piece of advice would you give someone choosing the same career?

Ginger: I would say don’t be afraid to ask questions. Be outgoing and open to learning new things every day.

Q: Is there a project you’ve worked on thus far in your career that you’re proudest of?

Ginger: In my previous job, I developed and implemented food waste composting procedures and data collection for the university. I successfully turned the campus’ food waste into a valuable landscaping material.

Q: Why did you decide to join the Klingner team?

Ginger: Klingner has been a very open and welcoming team from the very start. Their professionalism is definitely something that I have been looking for within an employer and work environment.

Q: Where is the last place you’ve traveled and what did you find interesting about it?

Ginger: Last summer we took a family vacation to the upper peninsula of Michigan on Lake Superior. The lake is absolutely amazing. It’s the largest freshwater lake in the world, holding 10% of the world’s surface fresh water and only reaches 55 degrees, even during the summer’s most intense heat!
