They say the bonsai artform is an equal measure of artistic ability, skill, knowledge, and patience. We’d say the same could be applied to that of a successful project manager, so it’s fitting Joel Jenkins operates in both of these worlds. Born and raised in Baton Rouge, LA, he received his degree in Construction Management from LSU. It’s also where he and his wife Katie are raising their 2 daughters and Goldendoodle, Bodie.
Joel has experience in managing restaurant, retail, hotel and warehouse projects, with an extensive background in fuel work. His easy-going likable nature helps him build lasting relationships with his project team and client partners. Perhaps it’s his disciplined bonsai practice that gives Joel this zen-like quality – for as one Chinese proverb says “The more you sweat in practice, the less you bleed in battle.”
