About

Professional Summary

I am President/CEO of LCK, the project management partner of Colliers International | South Carolina. Founded in 1994, LCK is a certified woman-owned business that serves clients throughout the state through a regional network of offices in Greenville, Spartanburg, Columbia, and Charleston.

I also serve as Executive Vice President and Principal of Colliers International | South Carolina, with executive leadership responsibility for the firm’s Real Estate Management Services division. The REMS staff of nearly 60 property management and maintenance professionals manages over 14 million square feet of space statewide. 

At LCK, we offer project management solutions for institutions, corporations and private entities in the renovation and development of real estate. The company’s wealth of experience across multiple market segments brings value added services to every client we serve.

I have been fortunate to assemble a great team of project management professionals within LCK and together we leverage collective backgrounds in engineering, facilities management, construction and financial modeling to offer a comprehensive service.

My primary focus within both Colliers and LCK is business development, consulting, advisory services and strategic planning.

Accomplishments

I currently serve on the Board of Directors of First Community Bank and am a member of the Midlands Business Leadership Group (MBLG). I have served in leadership roles of many other organizations and community projects throughout my career, including being a past Chair of the Board of Transitions and Committee of 100. Additionally, I am currently a member of the YMCA of Columbia Board of Directors and Board of Trustees of South Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities. 

In January 2020, I was recognized as one of the “50 Most Influential People in Columbia” by the Columbia Business Monthly and have also been recognized by publications and organizations as a woman of influence in the business community, receiving the 2013 Influential Women in Business CEO Award by the Columbia Regional Business Report, the 2010 Corporate TWIN Award presented by the Palmetto Center for Women, the 2011 Girl Scouts of South Carolina-Mountains to Midlands Woman of Distinction Award and was included in Columbia Business Monthly’s 2011 “Women of Influence”. I have also served in senior leadership roles at the national level within the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM), including Senior Vice President for Membership, IREM Foundation Board Member, IREM Faculty member and chair of numerous other committees within the organization.
