Professional Summary

As a Vice President for the Colliers International Retail Services Team, I specialize in landlord and tenant representation throughout the Colorado region.   

Throughout my 10+ years in brokerage, I have developed considerable market knowledge. This has enabled me to drive business growth and capitalize on new revenue potential. I have been able to assist my clients successfully in the strategic repositioning and growth of their respective businesses.

During my tenure, I spent 5 years as the co-chair for the Colliers International Retail New Generation Group which focuses on the education and enhancement of new retail brokers within Colliers International. I then spent the next 3 years as co-chair for the Colliers International Landlord Group. 

During my downtime, I enjoy all that Colorado has to offer. From hiking/skiing to the theater and arts. I take full advantage of everything Colorado has to offer! On the weekends you will find me spending time in the outdoors with my two dogs: Abby & Ernie.
