Professional Summary

As the client services coordinator for the Arizona Retail Services Team with Colliers International, I provide high-quality administrative and marketing support services, working closely with Loralee Barnum, senior client services specialist. Our team of eight brokers specializes in the sale and leasing of retail properties, representing landlords, tenants and investors.

As a resourceful and performance-driven professional, I successfully manage multiple projects and tasks on behalf of the brokers. I am responsible for designing print and digital property marketing materials, drafting letters of intent, booking transaction vouchers, preparing correspondence, organizing and scheduling conference calls, coordinating broker and client meetings, and maintaining client activity reports. I liaise with team members and other internal resources to create tour packages and prepare proposals.

Prior to joining Colliers, I was a property administrator and administrative assistant with Cushman & Wakefield in Phoenix. I assisted with lease administration, bid proposals, service contracts, and monthly and quarterly property management reports.

Previously, I was a senior facilities coordinator for InVentive Health in Ohio. I coordinated building subcontractor activities, ensured regular maintenance and review of facilities for safety and structural concerns, and managed the security access control database.
