What part of the real estate industry are you in?  What company do you currently work for?  Portfolio and Investment Management for Panattoni Development Company.

What is your favorite part of CREW?  If you are a new member, why did you join CREW?  I joined CREW because I recently moved to Denver, and I am excited to meet female professional leaders in the real estate industry; I find it inspiring.

What do you like to do in your spare time?  Hobbies?  I enjoy running and fitness, playing sports and spending time with friends and family.

Are you a Colorado native?  If not, where are you from and how did you end up in Colorado?  No, I am from Iowa.  I moved to Dallas in May of 2013, and I moved to Denver in May of 2017. We moved for my boyfriend’s job and I was able to transfer from the Dallas office to the Denver office.

Favorite spot in Denver (or surrounding areas)?  So far I really like the small neighborhoods near downtown and enjoy hiking, biking and skiing in the mountains.

What food, dessert or treat can you NOT resist?  Pizza! Homerun Inn frozen pizzas are the best!

Dream vacation?  My dream vacation would be a safari in Africa or a nice relaxing beach vacation in Bora Bora.

Biggest accomplishment of your career?  Becoming Assistant Portfolio Manager and presenting a new refinance structure to the investment and management committees.

Favorite motivational quote to inspire you at work?  “She believed she could, so she did.”
