I am a Brokerage Associate in our Columbia office working with the industrial brokerage team of Chuck Salley, SIOR, Dave Mathews, SIOR and Thomas Beard. Our team focuses on landlord representation and site selection for tenants looking in central South Carolina.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the challenging and rewarding nature of industrial brokerage. Our team has the privilege to work with clients and prospects on both sides of a transaction and find solutions to best suit their needs. We get to play a role in growing businesses in our community and stimulating the local and regional economy. This is a reward that few other careers can offer.
B.A. Political Science, University of South Carolina
I joined Colliers International | South Carolina as a research intern, conducting various projects including building a statewide retail research database and classifying and categorizing various lease data. Through my work as an intern I was able to get a taste for the Colliers culture and work environment and develop a solid foundation in which to begin my career. During my internship, the thriving industrial sector excited me, and I decided to pursue a career in industrial brokerage.
Memberships & Involvements
I was born and raised in Columbia and I am excited to have a career working in a region and a market that I am very familiar with. In my spare time, I enjoy fishing, hunting and rooting on the University of South Carolina Gamecocks at various sporting events.
I enjoy being involved in my local community and as well as in foreign countries that are in need. I have participated in various mission projects in El Salvador and Salkahatchie and have participated in annual fundraisers for Camp Cole, a safe, accessible and inspirational gathering place where groups can connect, share, encourage and shine.
