My career in Commercial Real Estate started with an internship rotating between different business departments at NAI Hiffman in 2015. It officially began directly after graduating from the University of Iowa in June of 2016. Advising private and public companies, financial institutions, investors and developers in the leasing, acquisition and disposition of office real estate assets, land, and investments throughout the greater Chicagoland area is something I am honored and grateful to be entrusted with on a day-to-day basis. Working hard, being trustworthy, solving problems, and always thinking ‘we’ and not ‘I’, are values that have been ingrained into my character from a young age and I carry that into my business practice and everyday life.
Spending time with family and friends, watching the NFL (GO BEARS) and NCAA football (GO HAWKEYES), finding new restaurants to try in Chicago, and attending live music and playing music is what consumes most of my time off the clock. Growing up in Elmhurst, Illinois, most of my family and friends living in the Chicagoland area, which means there is always something happening to take part in. Living in a centralized place like Lincoln Park allows for easy access to the entire city of Chicago and all it has to offer. I love spending time doing anything that involves being outdoors and traveling to new places.
