Advancing the Success of Women in Commercial Real Estate
Company: Port of Portland
How did you first hear about CREW Portland?
What motivated you to join CREW Portland?
Networking, Business Development, Be a voice for women in Commercial Real Estate. Also, I was a presenter on a panel for a CREW event and saw a lot of new faces and thought it would be a great opportunity to connect and learn from women who I haven't had a chance to do so with before.
How did you get here?
How much time to do you have :-). I started at the Port in October 2000 as an Administrative Coordinator and have either competed for and gotten a new/different position or have been promoted over 10 times in the last 19 years. My previous positions include ones in our HR division, public affairs--community outreach, Industrial development, and now I'm in the commercial group as the director of business development and properties.
Tell us something we didn't know about you?
I'm an avid college football fan--well mainly the University of Georgia. Gooooo Dawgs!
If you could describe yourself in three words what would they be?
