Sara West, our Accounts Manager, graduated from Cal Poly in 1985 with a B.S. in Business Administration. Since joining Pacific Builders in 2000, she has been instrumental in bringing a high degree of organization to our bookkeeping and estimating process. Her background and experience in accounting, property management, and real estate appraisal, coupled with her pleasant attitude, make her an indispensable member of the team.

Sara’s interest in construction started as a teenager. She spent her summers working with her dad renovating old houses. This exposure fostered her fascination with construction and in 1992 she obtained a general contractor’s license. Our Project Managers are able to easily communicate project details to Sara that are needed for billing and change orders.

Married for eighteen years, she lives in San Luis Obispo with her husband, two girls, Foot-Foot the dog, two cats, chickens, and a variety of feathered friends. A confirmed gardener, Sara loves to putter in the garden and grow award winning flowers.

Barbara Ridge keeps very busy working as Pacific Builder’s Office Coordinator. Her warm, enthusiastic smile expresses how much she enjoys her job. With us since mid-2006, Barbara tackles and organizes paperwork, schedules, permits, bids, and photos for each project. Any unusual requests for help from co-workers, subcontractors or clients make their way to her desk. You might find her hunting down a box of nails from storage, creating special signs for a project or checking on a subcontractor’s workers compensation insurance.

Barbara is attending Cuesta College and working towards a business degree. She plans to make a career in the construction industry and is excited to be learning everything she can about the business. She enjoys working with the public and is a pleasant, helpful contact when you call the office.

In her personal life, she lives her life as green as possible and is excited to be part of a company that embraces sustainable building techniques. In her spare time, she enjoys camping, hiking, fishing, and spending time with her family.

Carol Radike is the Special Projects Manager for Pacific Builders. A 1983 Cal Poly graduate she earned a B.S. in Biology with a concentration in Plant Pathology and Entomology. She joined the company originally as our bookkeeper in 1998, but motherhood intervened allowing her fewer hours to spend in the office. As Special Projects Manager she concentrates on difficult, time consuming projects like developing our web site or researching developmental guidelines for specific projects.

An avid outdoor lover, you will likely find her hiking, tending her worm bin, nurturing her garden or homeschooling her son. Married for 16 years, her very favorite pastime is being with her family and working on the ‘next home project’.
