1. Where are you originally from and how long have you lived in Las Vegas?  I was born and raised in Hammond, IN, attended Arizona State University, and moved to Las Vegas in 2008 in order to open the local Dominion office.

2. What has NAIOP provided that has helped you grow professionally or personally?  From the moment I first joined NAIOP in 2008, I felt that I had access to the most influential and powerful people in the industry and that I was ahead of the curve when it came to emerging trends and news. This has helped me grow both professionally and personally through the years as I have not only connected with great clients but made lifelong friends.

3. What has been your favorite experience or story that happened at a NAIOP event? My favorite experience had been the Developing Leaders Institute. I did not know what to expect but I knew it was important for me to apply and it has been the best decision I have made as a NAIOP member.

4. Who have you met at a NAIOP event that has influenced you or that you have become close friends with?  I have made too many close friends to name here, but one person that I have grown to admire has been Mike Shohet. I first met Mike in government affairs and have watched how he has progressed to the board, to president, to his commitment to NAIOP national. I believe Mike is a good role model for all NAIOP members.

5. What do you want your legacy to be in the Southern Nevada Community?  I hope to be remembered as a good husband, father, friend, and mentor.  I would also like to leave the Southern Nevada community a better place to live, work, and raise a family compared to when I first moved here.

1. Where are you originally from and how long have you lived in Las Vegas?  I was born in Nebraska but I have been in Las Vegas most of my life.

2. What has NAIOP provided that has helped you grow professionally or personally?  NAIOP has provided connections to people in other industries that I wouldn’t normally have. Though I have only been a member for a short time, I can tell that I will meet some great new friends as I become more involved with this community.

3. What has been your favorite experience or story that happened at a NAIOP event? Honestly, my favorite experience just happened earlier this month at my first membership committee meeting. I didn’t know a single person in there, yet everyone was so welcoming and friendly.

4. Who have you met at a NAIOP event that has influenced you or that you have become close friends with?  I have been attending the NAIOP breakfasts off and on for a while, but after chatting with Chris Teachman and Sabrina Borghoff, they really helped push the decision to become a full member. It seems that every month I find someone so friendly to chat with.

5. What do you want your legacy to be in the Southern Nevada Community?  What a question!! As a new mom, my perspective has changed on everything including professionally. I would like my legacy as a landscape architect and a mom to create fun, sustainable, creative spaces for people of all ages to enjoy and learn in.
