I have been fortunate enough to have been involved in the commercial property management industry for over 20 years in the downtown and Chicago suburban markets. I began my career as a Regional Property Accountant for Equity Office Properties Trust. One of my properties invited me to their ice cream social tenant event. I spent the whole day at the property, touring back of the house, meeting tenants, attending the event, working on their variance report and I was hooked. Property Management was where I belonged! 6 months later I was a Property Administrator at a 1,000,000SF highrise in the CBD and loving every minute. I love working on projects, making the property better, digging into energy efficiency, balancing the budget and the relationships that come from Coworkers, Clients, Tenants and Vendors. Since joining NAI Hiffman, I have been able to take my career to the next level in becoming the mentor, reviewer, problem solver for an amazing group of property professionals whom I have the privilege of working with. My team manages not only highrise office but low rise office, industrial and retail assets for a variety of owners.
I have a large modern day Brady bunch family. I have 3 kids and my husband has 3 kids, ages 23-10. 5 of them live with us. So any time I’m not working life is full of practices, meets or games and they are all in different sports! In those rare “me time” moments, I love to read, laying in my hammock on our deck with my pup swinging with me. My husband and I also enjoy the quiet of walking or biking the forest preserve trails near our house. Our new family favorite is our driveway drive-in movie, projecting the latest movies on our garage door, next to the bonfire with tons of snacks and smores.
