Focus: Real Estate with a Social Impact / Workforce Housing
Image from Temecula.png

While I started my career in social services, I've now been in the real estate industry for approximately ten years in some capacity.

In May 2023, I will graduate from the University of San Diego with a Master's degree in Real Estate. With the degree, I hope to secure full-time employment in the field of commercial real estate.

While I'm open to a variety of positions, my primary interests are real estate funds, syndications, development, investor relations and marketing, capital markets, and asset management. I'm also specifically interested in workforce housing and other areas having a social impact.

I've lived in seven states and three time zones. Can you guess how many states I've traveled to? Click here for the answer.
