Where are you originally from and how long have you lived in Las Vegas. Born and raised in Henderson, Nevada. I have been a resident for 25 years.
What has NAIOP provided you that has helped you grow professionally or personally? NAIOP has provided me with an opportunity to get to know my peers and network in fun environments. I have met some great people along the way!
What has been your favorite experience or story that happened at NAIOP event? The Make a Wish 5k Walk at Town Square was a great experience as it was one of my first events entering the industry. It was an early morning walk so I ended up bringing my dog along for the excitement, and coincidentally several committee members had the same idea. We ended up have our walking group lead by the pup pack which was super cute! Doing that walk together also gave me a great opportunity to get to know everyone. To this day I still volunteer with the Community Service Committee which is the same group from that event!
Who have you met at a NAIOP event that has influenced you or that you have become close friends with? Everyone I have met so far has been awesome. If I had to pick one person who I have become close with, it would have to be Megan McInerney. She is always the best to volunteer and go to general events with. She is always in great spirits!
What do you want your legacy to be in the Southern Nevada community? To be known as someone who motivated others and someone who served with humility and compassion.
