I am an architect with 6+ years of experience improving, undertaking, and delivering cross-functional workflows, internal design initiatives and workspace test fits at WeWork.  My global team of 4 colleagues and I developed the winning business proposal to combat the loss of memberships due to COVID-19, aiming to increase revenue by 40% over the next 12 months.  My skills include solving design problems with a natural ability to collaborate effectively among interdisciplinary teams. 

I look forward to opportunities where design, real estate development, and health can merge and create a positive impact.  Currently, I am working towards my real estate salesperson license.
