Professional Summary

I specialize in the purchase and sale of hotels and hospitality properties. My responsibilities include representing owners and users in the sale and leasing of a variety of properties. Ever responsive to my clients’ needs, I assist them with their acquisition, disposition and leasing needs. I am a big believer in the power of networking and relationships, connecting my clients with opportunities inside and outside of South Carolina.

I am a member of the Colliers National Hospitality Group, specializing in franchise negotiations, financing, rebranding and marketing from startup properties as well as turn-around investments. Some of these clients include large private and public REITs, management companies, lenders and services and owners/operators of hotel properties throughout the United States. 

My previous experience as a female business owner and supporter of business development gives me unique insights into the needs of owners, investors and users, helping me to translate their needs into smart commercial real estate decisions. It has also taught me the value of the boots-on-the-ground approach. I believe in knowing my market by being in it day after day. As a woman who speaks three languages, I am a believer in serving clients who have not traditionally engaged with commercial real estate or who have larger international real estate goals.


In April 2020, I completed the Certification for Hotel Industry Analytics (CHIA), a globally recognized professional credential that validates advanced knowledge in hotel industry analytics including foundational metrics, definitions, formulas and methodologies.


I have a varied professional background, with experience in medical supplies sales and banking. I have also been a business owner and manager, running a retail store and a wholesale car dealership. The demands of business gave me experience in management, planning, logistics, customer service, marketing and sales. My experience means that landlords and tenants trust that I understand their unique needs and real estate goals.

I am currently pursuing my CCIM designation.
