Professional Summary

As a Senior Associate in the Boca Raton office of Colliers International South Florida, I am part of a team delivering strategic solutions for local, regional occupiers and national corporate clients. Combining deep market knowledge with occupier trends, I create real estate opportunities that match our clients’ business objectives.

My diverse background of real estate experience - ranging from leasing, business development, real estate development and property management – allows me to better understand the angles and drivers of each transaction. Most recently as the Director of Property Management with Cohen Commercial Realty in West Palm Beach, I provided leadership and direction to a team supporting a portfolio comprised of approximately 4.5 million square feet of retail and office space. While there, I strategized with the CEO on optimization and profitability measures by best positioning all assets in their respective markets. I also served as the Lead Developer responsible for securing site plan approvals and construction permits with the City, County, and SBDD for a Publix redevelopment project. 

Bringing nearly ten years of South Florida commercial real estate experience to my role at Colliers, I have also been successful in business development and leasing roles with Alliance Property Systems, Commerce Group and Synergy Real Estate.
