1. How did you end up in commercial real estate?
My first job out of college, I was an Accounts Receivable Clerk for Regency Centers.
2. What’s one thing that people would be surprised to learn about you?
I have an adventurous spirit. I’ve competed in a Spartan Race and swam with the sharks at the Georgia Aquarium. I am not at all the “girly-girl” that most people think I am.
3. Best part of your job here at Carter?
The people, as well as the fast-paced atmosphere.
4. Who has been the most influential person in your career?
Debra Cobbs. She was my Property Manager at Regent Partners and taught me to always do the right thing by your clients. Also, she taught me that everyone you come into contact with is your client and you should treat your owner’s money as if it is your own.
5. Where in the world are you headed on your next vacation?
I have no idea, but you can bet that there will be sun, sand and water.
6. What did you want to grow up to be?
A doctor, until I took my first biology class.
7. If you could have lunch with a famous person – dead or alive – who would it be and why?
Jimmy Hoffa, president of America’s largest labor union – the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. He disappeared on July 30, 1975. I just want to know where he’s buried.
8. Are you a social media user? Which platforms?
Facebook is the only social media platform that I use. I have a lot of friends on Twitter and Instagram though.
9. What’s on your bucket list that you’d like to share?
I don’t really have a bucket list. I want to continue to live a happy life and create lasting memories along the way.
10. Favorite thing about Atlanta?
The food. There seems to be a great, new restaurant opening every week.
