N.C. Program Filling a Void in Building Trades

A year ago, Angela Cacace was cutting hair, a career she’d had since her early 20s.

Now, the 30 year old is stepping into a new profession full time: construction.

“As a woman, no one tells you to be a general contractor,” Cacace said. “I never thought it would have been a viable career option.”

It wasn’t until after she received plaudits in the magazine This Old House on a kitchen remodel she had done that she realized she should pursue her DIY projects as a career.
