Memberships & Involvements
Director, Business Development & Strategic Resources | Northeast Region
As the Director of Business Development & Strategic Resources for the Northeast Region, I serve as a business partner and advisor to the regional president, division leadership and local marketing and research experts for all offices throughout the northeastern United States. In my role, I bring management and oversight to the local office marketing and research teams, striving to deliver tools, resources, and best practices to optimize processes and final deliverables, all resulting in first-class client service. Whether it is bolstering creative collateral, preparing impactful content, or focusing on strategic business development, I am a team player truly energized by the opportunity to bring the right people and tools together for any given project.
Prior to commencing my regional role in October 2020, I served for five years as the director of marketing for Colliers in Boston, working alongside the brokerage, marketing, research, and operations teams to support business development pursuits, execute property marketing campaigns, drive public relations and team positioning efforts, and encourage internal communications for the benefit of enhancing workplace culture and relationships. Before the director of marketing role, I spent another five years working directly with Colliers Boston's suburban leasing team in a hybrid role that spanned a diverse array of marketing, research, brokerage, and operations type responsibilities.
Before Colliers, I spent four years as an associate with a real estate brokerage firm in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, working with an elite industrial brokerage team in a true distribution hub market. I developed an interest in and appreciation for supply chain decisions and logistics management, learning that there is much more than meets the eye with what most would perceive as “gritty” warehouse buildings. This experience also afforded me opportunities to learn about different aspects of real estate above and beyond just leasing and disposition, including, but not limited to, property management, development, marketing and research – all invaluable exposure as I now interact with departments within Colliers specializing in each of these disciplines.
In this high energy, competitive industry, I strive to maintain a strong work ethic and calm temperament in my pursuit to provide the highest level of service and support to clients and colleagues. Beyond the office, I enjoy relaxing with family and friends, traveling, and tackling an endless list of home improvement projects.
