Who is your role model? Why?
Rachel DeWoskin is one of my role models. She was my freshman writing instructor in college and the first person to show me that you have to make your own dreams come true. She told us her goal was to become a writer and she published her first book before I graduated.  She is now a professor at the University of Chicago and has published five books, numerous poems and essays, in addition to being featured in major publications.

What is your favorite quote?
My favorite quote is from Grey’s Anatomy, my guilty pleasure: "Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it. But every now and then, look around. Drink it in. Because this is it. And it might all be gone tomorrow."

What have you gained from being a member of CREW Denver?
My CREW membership has opened me up to a wonderful community of women who are experiencing similar struggles and successes in the Commercial Real Estate industry. The group includes members of a wide range of ages so I’m able to connect with my peers as well as seasoned professionals who provide support and guidance.
