I started in the industry 3 years ago completely green. I was immediately hooked and became extremely passionate about this industry. Within a year I was promoted to Assistant Manager and within another year I was promoted again to Property Manager. I have served on AAWNC's board as a director of operations for 2 years and for my my 3rd year, in 2022, I will be serving as the Vice President. I also am the committee chair for AAWNC social media committee and the awards banquet planner. I was awarded Assistant Manager of the Year in 2020, which was an amazing honor. I look forward to being a part of this industry for many more years and to continue to be inspired by the strong and talented leaders in my life.
