Professional Summary

A bit about me.

It is rare for me to be afraid. But I am. I’m afraid of writing another snoozer bio explaining how I’m a great negotiator, a master of tenant site selection and a guru of property marketing all while working to sell my ability to strategize, focus, and execute. So, against my PR department’s advice, here is a little about me.

I broke the mold when it came to having only one or two styles of groups with whom I identified. I rode horses on the quarter horse circuit, ran cattle in the chutes, went snow skiing nearly every weekend, loved boating and was outside as often as possible. My older brother picked on me enough that out of necessity I learned to stand up for myself. These were all contributors to the foundation of my grit and strong work ethic.

I went to high school with a bunch of “rockers,” danced feverishly to alternative music, wore a glove like Michael Jackson when I raced barrels, and had haircuts inspired by David Bowie. When it comes to taste, I still have a broad spectrum, I continue to have great family and diverse friends – they all contribute to my awesome life.

I grew up and away from horseback riding and the David Bowie haircuts, but continued my path of being my own person and a forward thinker. I’ve always been hungry for learning and meeting new people. Throughout college these traits served me well and lead me to my first career in elementary education. I spent twenty years in the public education field, initially as an educational interpreter for the deaf, and later as an elementary teacher. I am asked often if I miss teaching. Absolutely! June, July, and August. But seriously, children are a wonder – fearless, good energy, spontaneous, and inherently good humans. I grew increasingly disenchanted with the school system caring more about passing a test than recognizing the individual children. The paradigm shift in education sparked my need to make a career change.

Fast forward to my real estate career. My father’s job in commercial real estate was the topic of conversation over years of family dinners, so it was a familiar subject. It dawned on me that I could still work with immature people that don’t listen. How? Brokerage! (I never tire of that joke.)

98.6% of the time, I adore my job and the adventure of daily rollercoaster rides on the real estate train. I have respect for those who can “ride that train” and keep their spirit. I thrive on meeting diverse people in the in the industry who have the moxie required to succeed. Regardless of the role, if you are in CRE you are a rare breed. Investor, developer, tenant, operator – this industry is not for the faint of heart or people with stress-induced acid reflux.

It’s my good fortune to work among fantastic people in our CRE community. I’m lucky to keep meeting new people and making new friends while exploring and creating opportunities. If we have not met, I hope to change that in the future.

Be kind to each other and remember the words of John F. Kennedy.   “One person can make a difference, and everyone should try.”
