Tell us about your career:
I began my journey in property management in 2007 and took a brief hiatus to explore a different field, but ultimately came back to what I know and love! I have been with Caralea Valley Apartments, managed by Greystar, for almost 6 years and every day is a learning experience with a chance to grow! During this pandemic, I believe I truly saw how amazing a team can be when times get tough. That is why property management is not just a career, it is a family!
Property management is definitely my passion and I look forward to what’s to come.
What advice do you have for someone just starting in your field:
Be yourself always and never stop pushing yourself to be better! Be compassionate, but firm, and always take your mental health and vacation days. Leave work at work and don’t lose yourself in the fast paced nature of the business. Integrity and hard work go a long way!
Anything else you would like to share:
I am a very proud mama of 2 amazing kids and the most awesome fur-baby (cat) named Cali. I am aslo about to add to my family and get married to the man of my dreams in October 2021. Fun Facts: I am a die hard Steelers football fan and my favorite thing to eat is Japanese/Hibachi. So I’m pretty basic, but incredibly blessed!
