Senior Director, Project Management
Before joining Colliers International | Minneapolis-St. Paul as Senior Director of Project Management Services I started my career in in electrical design, specializing in design-build healthcare projects. From this point, I advanced into an owner’s representative role with a large healthcare system in Minneapolis.
With this experience and client roster under my belt, I started my own company, S2 Enterprises in 2011. At S2 myself and my small, but specialized team of project managers brought projects to completion, on time and on budget in the healthcare construction and medical equipment planning fields.
In May of 2018, I joined S2 with Colliers MSP to strengthen and grow the project management offerings, adding expertise in healthcare, data centers, high-tech and greenfield construction.
My professional success is a result of technical understanding of complex projects paired with proactively driving value to my clients bottom line. I have extensive experience managing all aspects of construction projects from team selection process to owner move-in. I provide my clients value through a deep understanding of contract administration & negotiations, budget establishment and management, equipment planning, coordination and logistics management.
I manage all aspects and team members involved in a project to provide clients with a cohesive project delivery every step of the way for every project big or small.
