Advancing the Success of Women in Commercial Real Estate
How did you first hear about CREW Portland?
The owner of my company 4 years ago suggested I check it out. I was new to the industry and had recently moved back to the area after being gone for some time.
What motivated you to join CREW Portland?
Networking, Business Development, Meet Inspiring People
How did you get here?
I have worked in sales, sales training, and management for over a decade. My husband and I moved back to Oregon from Chicago after about 4 ago where I was consulting on sales training plans for software companies but the majority of my clients were midwest and east coast.
I decided to finish up my projects and go back to school for my MBA, and in the meantime get an "easy sales gig"--which landed me in commercial furniture and design at Hyphn (come to find out, FAR more complicated but FAR more exciting than software!) and I've been committed and in love with the company and the CRE industry since.
Tell us something we didn't know about you?
I've live in 48 states (sometimes for as little as 8 weeks, but paid my taxes!), but I'm Oregon born and raised and so glad to be back here contributing to this community.
If you could describe yourself in three words what would they be?
Meyers Briggs ESFJ
Favorite Travel Destination?
So far, Chile, but I have lots more travel to do!
What is one goal you would like to achieve through CREW?
I have a personal goal to contribute to a local organization as a board member, which I'd love to do with CREW. Currently I'm active as a co-chair for a committee and love the work and the people I get to connect with because of it.
