  • Katie Kosloski
    GREENFIELD DEVELOPMENT MANAGER

    I started with Luck Stone in 2009 as a Mining Engineering Co-Op Student. This 15-month program allowed me, while still in college, to learn about the industry and work through mine development and reserve estimation projects. I was hired by Luck Stone full-time upon graduation. I had a vast interest in gaining a deeper understanding of quarry operations and entered a Foreman Trainee role at the company. In this position, I was able to learn more about the mechanical crushing and screening systems that help attain the appropriate product graduations. I also learned a tremendous amount about leadership and the importance of teamwork through my time in the plant. Currently, I am leveraging both my engineering and operational experience to lead a team through the development of a new quarry pit in Leesburg, Virginia. The culture and people at Luck Stone make this company a great fit for me. Working for a mining company where the Mission and Vision speak to the value that each member of our team brings to the table is truly felt in the way that Luck associates approach and interact with each other, and is often noted by the community in our exchanges with them.
