When the clock begins ticking on relief efforts, GSH is tasked with custom designing, delivering and erecting structures, and doing on-site construction as needed, in an unprecedented timeframe.
When not involved with disaster relief, the company is involved with projects that may not be as exciting, yet are just as important; meeting the need for well-engineered infrastructure, construction and structural inspections for both the military and private sector, from design, planning and manufacturing to installation.
Stokes graduated from Mercer University, where she majored in biomedical engineering and physics, as well as studying the subjects that are put into practice at GSH, including manufacturing and management, structures and properties of materials. She worked for Pisces Corporation and Boeing, where she acquired the expertise in government contracting that has allowed for such successful teamwork with FEMA.
