About

Professional Summary

Tenants, landlords, and property owners depend on me for informed and honest advice about their real estate needs in Boston’s 128 and 495 south suburban markets. Working in unison with the Southwest team, I assist our clients in making thoughtful and cost-effective decisions in a leasing and investment market that has become increasingly dynamic in recent years.

I grew up in a family rooted in the real estate industry with our dinner table conversations often revolving around landlords and tenants in the market, so real estate has been in my genes – so to speak – for most of my life. Always keeping those interests in mind, I received my bachelor’s degree from Hobart William Smith College and then began my career at Rasky Baerlein where I managed permitting and community relations for development projects, but soon discovered that my true interest lied in the transaction side of the business. To help with the transition, I decided to earn my MBA in corporate finance from Babson College, with a focus in real estate and operations. In 2013, while simultaneously completing my courses at Babson, I joined the suburban brokerage leasing team at Colliers International where I have been able to combine my long-standing passion for real estate with my corporate finance expertise. This combination has helped tremendously in advising clients seeking to reduce their overall real estate costs and improve their bottom line.

 I have always been a believer in the power of teamwork and collaboration, and this was a big factor in my decision to join the Southwest team at Colliers.  When a client hires me as an advisor, I can tell them with confidence that they are not only hiring me, but they are hiring six experienced and diverse individuals who have the knowledge, support and resources of a top tier real estate company. In an undeniably competitive industry, our matchless team chemistry offers a true differentiator because it gives clients the opportunity to leverage our individual disciplines and skillsets to achieve their business goals.
