2017 Rising Star Award Winner


Dana Dziuk

Lee Lyn Construction, LLC

A fellow BATC Member remarks:
"Dana will definitely be one to watch in the near future. Lee Lyn Construction has been a steady and well-respected builder for many years. I respect the way Dana has navigated within her new role in the company. The learning curve is steep, and Dana continues to walk with courage and boldness to face whatever situation or challenges arise. She also displays humility and patience being open to asking questions and looking for feedback. She is not afraid to say she doesn’t know, guaranteed she will find the answer though. She is authentic and real, much like the path her father has paved. Dana has also been intentional and strategic by getting involved at BATC [bat-see] events and other industry professional organizations.”
