Morgan’s Mentors Episode 5: Hannah Iezzoni

If you still don’t know what time it is, it is once again time to move the needle. Along with being a 2022 DFI President’s Award winner, new chair of the DFI Augered Cast-in-Place and Drilled Displacement Pile Committee, and technical program co-chair for the 2022 DFI Annual Conference in National Harbor, Hannah Iezzoni is passionate about mentorship and advocacy and joins us this week to dig deep into these topics. We talk about the roles and responsibilities of both mentors and young professionals in their relationship along with the importance of staying open to opportunities that present themselves during one’s career.

In this series (primarily intended for young professionals and undergraduate students), Morgan NeSmith will be discussing with various professionals about mentoring and being mentored. Each episode will follow a standard format with the purpose of providing general advice on career development and being mentored from a range of perspectives.

In this series, “DFI’s Rumble,” we will be pairing opposing positions for debate, across multiple industry topics. Each episode will consist of a short introduction to the topic and speakers, followed by two rounds of debate, broken up by a sponsor commentary section – similar to a halftime match commentary.

In the first series, Interview with a Survivor, hosts Lucky Nagarajan and Tim Siegel will be speaking with industry experts about their near misses, problem projects and resolutions.

DFI’s ‘Live at Game Day podcast’ with special guest hosts, including Chris Woods and Lucky Nagarajan, speaking to several attendees at DFI Annual Conferences.
