Professional Summary

As a Brokerage Associate in the Charleston office, I focus on the sale of net lease and retail assets including shopping centers, strip malls and single-tenant properties throughout the East Coast. My ultimate goal is to build strong relationships with clients and help grow the investment sales area of business with Colliers | South Carolina. 

In a previous role, I worked as an associate broker with a national firm and as a member of the top team in the company’s Boston office. In that role, I was responsible for underwriting more than $600 million in investment properties and developing new client relationships daily. My brokerage and financial analysis experience allow me to dig into any investment, understand it fully, perform a proper and accurate analysis and ultimately execute the trade of a property. 

Additionally, I am well-versed in the retail market throughout the Northeast and Southeast regions of the country and can help clients understand how everyday market changes are impacting real estate investments. 


As an investment sales broker, the project I am most proud of was when my team successfully underwrote a complex shopping center that consisted of more than 130,000 square feet of retail space that was home to 27 tenants. Our analysis resulted in an exclusive listing on behalf of a large international client. Although a significant challenge, we were successful in bringing the property to market and producing several offers. 



B.S., Bentley University in Economics and Finance; May 2016

After graduating from Bentley University, I worked as a financial analyst for an ultra-high net worth wealth management firm on Wall Street in Manhattan. From there, I decided to relocate back to Boston to pursue a career in commercial real estate. 

Memberships & Involvements

I enjoy attending ICSC conferences and events in Las Vegas, New York, Boston and Charlotte, networking with others in the industry and learning what is happening in our communities and around the region. 

In my spare time, I enjoy skiing in Stratton, VT, golfing at various courses throughout the country and traveling to spend time with my family in Syracuse and Boston.

As a new resident of Charleston, I am looking forward to being heavily involved in the community.
