What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned in your career so far?

Relationships are more important than time spent behind the computer. Surround yourself with people you enjoy working with. Traveling to other markets, doing market research, and making connections across the country is a valuable tool to help innovate and move the Jacksonville retail landscape forward.

What is your ultimate career goal?

To be a changemaker in the Jacksonville commercial real estate scene while being respected in the brokerage community and a ‘go-to’ for new-to-market brands.

What has been the most rewarding moment of your career to this point?

Betting on myself and taking the leap into brokerage in the midst of a global pandemic while also becoming a new mom has been my greatest achievement thus far.

What can Jacksonville do to help attract more young professionals?

Continue bringing new industries, upgrading downtown and its venues to attract large entertainers and events. Keeping up with roadway improvements and innovative solutions to accommodate the growing population and set us apart from the larger cities that are experiencing exodus.
