Shipp Joins CREW Midlands Board

The Massey Engineering team is excited to announce that Ellianna Shipp, our Lead Architectural Designer and Project Manager has joined the board of CREW Midlands.

CREW, or Commercial Real Estate Women, is an organization focused on networking and referral opportunities for women in the commercial real estate industry. Ellianna said the Midlands chapter has some of the area’s most influential leaders on the board.

“When you’re in the room with those kinds of people, that’s the room you want to be in,” Ellianna said.

Since becoming involved, Ellianna said she’s been impressed by CREW’s programming, which includes monthly luncheons, special events, and other opportunities to connect with professionals in the space.

With her board seat, Ellianna will represent Massey Engineering and Phase One. In addition to her board responsibilities, Ellianna will help lead the Midlands chapter’s UCREW efforts, which engage with college students interested in pursuing commercial real estate careers.

Ellianna said she was first introduced to CREW during college. “I thought, ‘What a great place to be with all these mentorship opportunities,’” she said.

The organization will focus on outreach to college students throughout the Midlands and beyond.

“Any way I think I can help younger people understand the reality of the jobs they’ll be doing, I think that’s so beneficial,” Ellianna said. Along with her community work, Ellianna will continue utilizing her design and client-facing skills on various residential and commercial projects for Massey Engineering and Phase One.
