Professional Summary

As a Brokerage Associate, I work with tenants, landlords, sellers and purchasers to lease, purchase and sell retail properties of all sizes and am responsible for increasing the Colliers retail portfolio in South Carolina. I work closesly with team members Rox Pollard and Danny Bonds and am a member of the Colliers | South Carolina Retail Services Team.

Columbia is primed for economic growth; our team is focused on bringing vital businesses to the area and helping local businesses take advantage of the opportunities here through advanced data analytics and creative solutions.

I am constantly seeking to make new connections and I enjoy meeting new people every day in the commercial real estate business. I enjoy developing strong, lasting relationships that extend far beyond a transaction.


Clemson University “Rising Star” Student Leadership Award Recipient


I graduated from Clemson University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics with a minor in Political Science. This background has led to a strong interest in public policy and its impact on our day-to-day lives.

At Clemson, I served as both the President and the Vice President of Risk Management of the Interfraternity Council. I also served as the Director of the Legacy Day Committee and a member of the Student Alumni Council and the Department of Student Affairs: Student Advisory Board. These leadership roles taught me how to work with a wide variety of people and institutions as I served as a conduit between the people I represented and the school’s administration.

Memberships & Involvements

I am active at my church, Trinity Episcopal Cathedral. I recently returned to Columbia after growing up here and I have a passion for making Columbia the best city it can be. I look forward to becoming involved in business networking, economic growth and planning, and commercial real estate organizations.

In my spare time, I enjoy cheering on the Clemson Tigers, playing golf and tennis, hunting, fishing and other outdoor activities, and traveling and exploring new places.
