Tell us about your career: 

Out of college, I started as a leasing consultant as I really enjoyed working with people and had previously worked in New Home Sales, thinking it would be a nice transition. I was thankful to then work my way up to a Property Manager when I was presented with a wonderful opportunity in DC. Fast forward thirteen years, I've been blessed to work in both the DC and Charlotte markets, being able to manage different assets. As I became more acclimated with the industry, I ventured into more involvement with GCAA by attending events and participating with the AANC PR Committee. Now happy to be managing a lease-up property for Carter-Haston in Charlotte, NC with goals of stabilization and hopefully working in an operations/development capacity in the future.
