Director of Business Development
13 years in the industry
Where are you originally from and how long have you lived in Las Vegas?
I am originally from Mesa, Arizona and moved to Las Vegas when I was 2 years old, not Battle Born, but Battle Raised!
What has NAIOP provided you that has helped you grow professionally or personally?
NAIOP has helped my career in many ways. It has provided me access to key leaders within the commercial real estate industry resulting in exposure to prospective projects and business deals. With 51 chapters across the country, there are a multitude of resources that I tap into for market education, strategic network opportunities, and industry trends. In turn, I utilize these innovative tools to provide Martin-Harris a broader spectrum of the latest industry trends on a national level. This allows Martin-Harris to remain cutting edge in the Southern Nevada market, as well as a continued leader within our community.
What has been your favorite experience or story that happened at NAIOP event?
My favorite experience at NAIOP would easily be taking part in the NAIOP Developing Leaders Institute, specifically with my project team. Not only did I garner a great deal from each of my teammates, but we were able to establish a lifelong friendship that I will carry with me throughout my career.
Who have you met at NAIOP event that has influenced you or that you have become close friends with?
I am unable to limit my associations to just one individual of influence as I have met so many amazing and influential people in the industry, all who I call friends today.
What do you want your legacy to be in the Southern Nevada Community?
My goal is to further influence the Southern Nevada Community in leading by example and being a good mentor. I would like to be remembered as a respectable trail-blazer who upheld a strong community presence with integrity and humility. Someone with a good moral compass.
The most powerful legacy I want to leave is for new members to be confident, audacious and committed individuals who will pursue their dreams, regardless of the status quo. I hope to show the incumbents that it’s respectable to chart their own course in life rather than succumbing to an all too familiar path to nowhere! I live my life as confidently as I can and that is my legacy.
