Garth Stoppard, Jr.
Principal+Senior Project Manager
Risk+Administrative Services Manager
As a second generation carpenter, Garth turned out to be a Jr. in more ways than one. Today Garth is a hard-working Superintendent who enjoys building challenges across sectors, from housing to commercial construction. Garth takes a very thorough, caring approach to getting things done on his projects, and enjoys the outdoor life in his spare time—especially riding dirt bikes, camping or doing anything on or near the water.
Jon attributes his appreciation of craft and hard work to working as a carpenter for a Spokane-based general contractor while earning a BS in Construction Management from Washington State University. Since joining GLY in 1999, he’s honed his expertise as a healthcare and high-tech office project manager and team builder. When he’s not piecing together complex logistics plans, you’ll find Jon cheering on the Seattle Sounders or casting a line. If he could talk his wife into selling everything and living in a trailer down by the river, he’d be there already.

As a young girl Amanda lived in Hawaii, where a large portion of her family is Native Hawaiian. After moving to Monroe, Washington she spent her high school years in Mansfield, a small town in eastern Washington. She worked for local trucking company before joining GLY, driving HM350 Haul Trucks around jobsites to load onto lowboy trailers, or she calls them, giant Tonka trucks! As part of GLY’s tool and equipment team, she enjoys supporting Jobs from the ground up and watching as the build happens. Amanda and her husband originally met in middle school and later reconnected. Now you’ll find them riding dirt bikes with their kids and spending time exploring the PNW in their Jeep.
Lauren spent the first ten years of her career working in the legal arena, starting out in the public sector, then transferring to the private. She now splits her time at GLY between supporting the risk management department and providing high-level administrative support to the executive team. Lauren and her family are sports fanatics and spend most weekends rooting for the Huskies and Seahawks. When they aren’t cheering on their teams, they spend as much time outside as possible: camping, fishing, hiking or enjoying walks with their rescue dog, Harry.
