Tell us about your career:
I was born and raised in Atlanta, GA. After obtaining my Bachelor's Degree from Johnson C. Smith University, I was later introduced to the multifamily industry in 2014 and was hired as a Leasing Consultant. One year later, I became Regional Marketing Director, and from there, after looking to explore the supplier side of the multifamily industry, Loebsack & Brownlee, PLLC gave me a home as Manager of Digital Media. I love that the multifamily industry allows me to explore my passions outside of digital marketing and content creation. So currently, I have the honor and privilege to serve as Co-Chair of the GCAA DE&I Committee and will serve as GCAA Products and Services Council Secretary in 2022. I have certifications in Organizational Culture, DE&I, Legal Environment, and Social Media and Digital Marketing. I am also in pursuit of my Master's Degree in Sociology.
What advice do you have for someone just starting in your field:
Stay true to yourself and remain a student. You can always learn something new, you can always increase your skill set, but you must focus on yourself first before you can help others. Take time for your mental health and begin with the end in mind.
