About

Professional Summary

I joined Colliers International in 2012 as a Marketing Coordinator for the Retail Tenant Representation Team in Tampa Bay to develop and implement comprehensive marketing campaigns based on each project’s unique set of requirements. I served as the Marketing Coordinator Team Lead for the Tampa Bay office from 2012 through 2015, as well as the meeting and event planner for the Colliers International Florida  Retail Group statewide for all retail conferences, ICSC and Retail Live! events. In 2017 I transitioned into brokerage and I am now an Associate in the Retail Services group.

I specialize in Retail Tenant Representation, as well as Retail Leasing. I am an expert in market analysis, tenant prospecting, strategic planning, site selection, LOI negotiations, lease structuring and negotiations, brand roll-outs, preparing Real Estate Committee packages and High Quality Trade Area studies for national clients. Some of my clients include: Lowe's Home Improvement, Pearle Vision, Jeremiah's Italian Ice, Willie Jewell's Old School BBQ, DECA Dental, Jollibee, Action Gator Tire, TJX Companies and more. I also serve as master broker for Envrioclean Dry Cleaners and PAINT Nail Bar. where I am helping them with market strategy and site selection nationwide. 

 

Accomplishments

I have over 11 years of experience in the commercial real estate industry. I discovered my passion for Real Estate while working for Grubb and Ellis in NYC in the Office Services division. I quickly learned that while I enjoyed office brokerage, retail is my true calling. 

In 2018 I became the head of the Retail Next Generation Committee for Colliers International nationwide. In 2017 I was awarded a Women's Diversity Scholarship and earned Top Producing Team along with my business partners Jim Kovacs and Tyler Peterson. I have also been the recipient of the Colliers International Above and Beyond Award for excellence in 2012 and 2013, as well as the Community Service Award for 2014 and 2015.
