How did you first hear about CREW Portland?
My current boss and name sake of the company I work for thought CREW would be a great way for me to make connections in the Portland real estate community. After going with her to a couple of meetings, I ended up taking over her membership and haven't looked back since!
What motivated you to join CREW Portland?
Networking, Business Development, Career Advancement, Meet Inspiring People, Be a Voice for Women in Commercial Real Estate. I know everyone says this about CREW Portland, but they really make networking easy. I consider myself an introvert and sometimes have a hard time making connections at networking events. Everyone at CREW, from members to leadership, really take the time and talk to you and get to know you. People really want you to reach out and ask for help.
