Tell us about your career:
I started my career in property management as a Leasing Consultant at Crescent Arbors in Cary, NC. Little did I know that it was going to be the start of a career. I worked as a leasing consultant for almost 2 years when my community sold and the new owners asked me to be their community manager. I honestly wasn't ready to be a community manager and it made for some long, hard days. After being a community manager for 3 years I was offered an Area Manager position and now I can't recall exactly when I transitioned from Area Manager to Regional Manager. I believe it was sometime in 2006? In 2018 I was promoted to Senior Regional Manager and most recently in 2019 to Regional Vice President.
What advice do you have for someone just starting in your field:
Be curious. Be curious about your residents, prospects, teammates, leaders, competitors, etc. They all have something to share that will help you grow and learn.
Anything else you would like to share:
Have fun and don't take yourself too seriously (I have to remind myself of this).
