Shanti Pieniak

Production Coordinator 

Shanti’s love for a good DIY project and her artistic eye has always drawn her to construction. After graduating from the College of Charleston with a degree in political science and psychology, she was eager to begin diving into the field and immersing herself with as much knowledge in the construction industry as possible. For over two years she worked for a large general contractor in Charleston, SC and then for a financial advisory firm focusing on emerging markets. Her years of experience have revealed an appreciation and fascination for all the teamwork and planning that goes into completing a remodeling project. She loves to make a client's dream and vision into a reality.


During her spare time, Shanti spends her days working on an art project or tending to her incredible amount of plant babies. She is also a (loving and caring) stepmom to her boyfriend's cat Ernie.
