After taking some time off to raise my daughter I am thrilled to be a part of the Hiffman team. Prior to starting my family, I was a property manager with one of country’s largest R.E.I.T.s, managing two apartment communities in the western suburbs. I wanted to try to take on the commercial side and was lucky enough to find Hiffman and I haven’t looked back! I have grown so much as a professional and as a person in my time here and love the team spirit that is part of the Hiffman culture. It is exciting to be a part of the company’s growth and to be trained under and work alongside professionals that bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the table. The unexpected awaits every day and I enjoy the challenge of juggling different tasks and situations. Whether working with tenants, vendors, ownership or my team, my job offers variety and opportunities for growth and learning all the time. I am also proud to work for a company that holds high value in philanthropic involvement and am grateful to have the opportunity to participate in these philanthropic endeavors with Hiffman.

While not working at my building, I can be found cheering on my daughter on the high school basketball court, attending meetings for my local board of education where I serve as the vice president and chair of the Finance committee, volunteering at my church and chairing The Roselle Sister Cities Association German Committee. My family owns a travel trailer and we love to spend our free time traveling around Lake Michigan or visiting state and national parks all over the country. In a different life, I worked as a cruise ship vocalist and traveled throughout Europe and the Caribbean performing with Celerity Cruises.
