About

Professional Summary


As Senior Project Manager at Colliers International | Minneapolis-St. Paul, I bring ten years of Project Management experience to the firm. The experience that led me to Colliers MSP was focused on a healthcare specialization and complex systems expertise.


I come to Colliers MSP with a diverse background in healthcare, corporate, higher education, and government project management experience. I excel at listening to stakeholders and ensuring successful outcomes. I work with clients to establish project goals and assure that they are successfully occupied in their space, on time, on budget and as seamlessly as possible. Because I effectively use resources to maintain scope, budget, and schedules I have a long history and successful track record of establishing client relationships that return again and again, or who recommend new clients through word-of-mouth referrals. 


As a project is conceived, I am continually working with clients to understand scope and transform their vision into a physical space. I supervise vendor procurement and coordinate all stakeholders including: design teams, construction services, furniture acquisition, technology instillation and maintaining relationships with other owner suppliers. 


My proactive approach to management ensures clear communication and an organized processes. I pride myself on my ability to handle demanding projects and responsibilities because of my thoughtful and sensitive approach to complicated business issues and interpersonal challenges. 


I have embraced my unique position within  the commercial real estate and construction industries to find ways to make change and provide opportunities for people like myself and I have spearheaded efforts to train and educate women and minorities to open doors for them in these industries. This passion led me to be selected as an Associate Board Member for the Association of Women Contractors (AWC). While serving on the board, AWC’s membership grew and was recognized as having a critical role in assisting aspiring women business owners to be successful in the construction and commercial real estate industries.
