Here is my story.. I am a second generation commercial real estate developer; taught by my father, empowered by my mother. I've since spent the last 8 years of my life climbing the ranks to become one of my companies VP of development. My role is multi-faceted but my main responsibility is spearheading my companies largest national retail account. I have built and lead a team of Real Estate Managers and Marketing Coordinators that I am very proud to announce is predominately female. My team is responsible for site acquisitions and management of the entitlement and procurement process on behalf of the expansion efforts for a leading national retailer. During my 8 years at this company, my team and I have generated approximately $150 Million in developed value.
I wanted to create this group to join together the women in this fun, fast paced, exciting industry. I am a member of the International Council of Shopping Centers and am always excited to see the growing numbers of people who look like me at our conventions. Please share your stories and experiences!
