About 

My background has afforded me the skills and knowledge of how to document processes and strategic management,  implement tactical planning to impact customer experience and sales, construct beautiful and functional spaces, work collaboratively, and most importantly how to be innovative. I thrive in fast paced environments and pride myself in knowing how to hustle with poise. I'm looking to join a team where the learning never stops and my passion to be creative can flourish. 

In my most recent position I worked directly under the Head of Design and Construction creating and designing shared living spaces at real estate management firm. As one of the first employees on the design team I had the opportunity in crafting and constructing the brand esthetic across 13 unique Common properties around the country and launching the companies first 235 beds. In my role I wore many hats and put out many fires. I was responsible for overseeing all working parts of the operation from initial design to execution. My position included, but was not limited to, coordinating with other professionals such as developers, contractors, architects, engineers, and technicians from project start to finish. I have experience in managing install and construction teams on site, establishing vendor relationships, managing B2B accounts, generating monthly expense and FFE reports, and implementing interdepartmental processes to preserve and refresh existing properties. My favorite place is my yoga mat, I start each morning off with the New York Times crossword puzzle, and have a fascination with how gardens and parks can enhance the quality of urban life for all New Yorkers.
