“Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become.”
I grew up in Denver, where my mother started and ran a real estate business for thirty years. She experienced success in a male dominated business by prioritizing integrity and long-term relationships. These guiding principles continue to inspire me each day.
Knowing I wanted to pursue a career in real estate, I attended Cornell University, where I focused on real estate, law, and beverage management. Upon graduation, I joined Tishman’s development team, where I was able to work on exciting projects and learn from extremely talented people. I might not have known it at the time, but the primary experiences in ground up development and redevelopment projects were unique and helpful in my own progression as a young professional.
Recently, I have continued to expand and grow my skillset by working on third-party real estate projects. I helped successfully launch our Opportunity Zone program, which invested in nineteen projects around the country, representing $3 bn in asset value. Working on a fund launch and then underwriting, diligence and structuring deals was exciting and satisfying, knowing we took a concept from beginning to end. More importantly, it has been gratifying to be part of a collaborative, entrepreneurial team that could leverage every part of the firm to deliver success. The cumulative experiences have given me a richer world view and the opportunity to be a more complete investor.
