College of Nursing pitches in on Rady Faculty Habitat build
Thinking about building a house? Talk to Lai Chun Yee.
With more than 10 years of construction experience, there’s hardly a task this College of Nursing staff member won’t tackle.
Of course, it probably won’t be your house she takes on next—she’s already got a day job coordinating the College’s HR activities, website and more to keep her busy. On the other hand, if it’s Habitat for Humanity asking, that’s a different story. She’ll be on it before you can say “Women’s Build” and she’s going to give her all until the very last nail goes into the wall.
“Many times you donate money and you don’t see where it goes,” she says. “But with this, you can see the results immediately. You get to know the family that’s getting the home. That’s the part that’s really rewarding. You meet the recipients.”
