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. 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 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.
When I’m not being a property super sleuth, I am mama uber and cheerleader to 2 swimmers, a football player and 2 bowlers. My husband and I have a blended family of 6 kids ranging from a Junior in college to 3rd grade. They keep us pretty busy but I do like weekend bonfires, curling up with a good book and action or sci-fi movies. We also love Diners Drive-ins and Dives or Chicago’s Best food TV shows. We will watch and episode, hop in the car and head to our newest favorite restaurant to try out the entre they are best known for, from burnt cheese crusted pizza to 3 foot meatball subs it’s always an adventure.
