As a member of the Private Capital Group at Colliers International, I specialize in the acquisition and disposition of privately owned retail centers and net leased assets in Southern California. Prior to joining Colliers, I was in retail sales management learning the ins and outs of what makes a successful retail company in today’s ever-changing environment. My retail management background coupled with a degree in engineering, has provided me with a strong understanding of numbers so I can confidently advise my clients on the best investment opportunity for them. I am effective at anticipating the needs of my clients and promptly providing solution-oriented advice. Our team is proud to be one of the top investment sales teams in the nation having successfully transacted on over $13 billion worth of commercial real estate.
When I am not focused on my career, I like to spend time discovering new restaurants with family and friends. You can also find me practicing yoga, hiking, or driving up the California coast.
