Professional Summary

I am President/CEO of LCK, the project management partner of Colliers | South Carolina. Founded in 1994, LCK is a certified woman-owned business that serves clients throughout the state through a regional network of offices in Greenville, Spartanburg, Columbia, and Charleston.

I also serve as Executive Vice President and Principal of Colliers | South Carolina, with executive leadership responsibility for the firm’s Real Estate Management Services division. The REMS staff of nearly 55 property management and maintenance professionals manages over 16 million square feet of space statewide. 

I have been fortunate to assemble a great team of project management professionals within LCK and together we leverage collective backgrounds in engineering, facilities management, construction and financial modeling to offer a comprehensive service.

My primary focus within both Colliers and LCK is business development, consulting, advisory services and strategic planning.


I currently serve on the Board of Directors of First Community Bank and Lexington Medical Center. In addition, I am a member of the Midlands Business Leadership Group (MBLG). I have served in leadership roles of many other organizations and community projects throughout my career, including being a past Chair of the Board of Transitions and Committee of 100. I served as secretary of the YMCA of Columbia Board of Directors and was also on the Board of Trustees of South Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities. 

I have served in senior leadership roles at the national level within the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM), including Senior Vice President for Membership, IREM Foundation Board Member, IREM Faculty member and chair of numerous other committees within the organization.

I’ve received the following recognitions:
