Tell us how and when you began your career in the profession you are in: I began my career out of grad school as a temporary admin in Cushman and Wakefield’s Valuation and Advisory department. I worked my way up for ten years while building a solid foundation in commercial real estate before switching gears to investment sales at CBRE almost four years ago. What is your current position? I work as a Director in CBRE Philadelphia’s Investment Sales Group, focusing on the sale of institutional grade office buildings. What was your most notable project, deal or transaction in 2018? My most notable transaction of 2018 is the sale of the GSK building located in the Philadelphia Navy Yard. The sale set a new price per square foot record for a Philadelphia office building. The building is also one of a handful of Certified Double LEED Platinum office buildings in the country. Who or what has been the strongest influence on your career? My mother. Despite not working outside of the home after I was born, she has taught me the most about the importance of hard work, perseverance and not taking ‘no’ for an answer.
