About

Professional Summary

I specialize in flex office and industrial brokerage at Colliers International’s Greenville, SC office. I have many years of experience in the industrial business world and understand the demands that businesses experience regarding real estate. I strive to make the process as smooth as I can for my clients and offer them empathy and knowledge for getting the best space for their needs. I am inspired and motivated by the beauty of business growth. Seeing a company start from a small garage startup and grow into a powerful industry leader is exciting, and I am proud to be able to play a part in helping clients get started in a building of their own.

Accomplishments

I am past President of the Greenville Breakfast Rotary, as well as a member of the University of Georgia’s Arch Foundation and currently on the Board of the Upstate Children’s Museum. I am also a former Deacon at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Virginia.

I received Colliers | South Carolina’s Community Service Award in 2014 for activities such as an endowment to sponsor students in regional and national sales-based competitions at the University of Georgia’s Terry School of Business Sales and Marketing Department, as well as donations of multiple GED scholarships for Goodwill Industries.

I also enjoy the community by learning about its history and hiking the many Greenville trails.

Education

A native of Atlanta, GA, I am a 1975 graduate of the University of Georgia. I received my master’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Hartford in 1992. 

Prior to joining Colliers, I was associated with another national brokerage firm for four years and was Vice President of Sales for Hubbell Lighting before that. I have an extensive background in corporate relocation and sales, acquisitions, business development and landlord representation. I hold the Master of Corporate Real Estate (MCR) designation from CoreNet.

Memberships & Involvements

I am a member of the Greater Greenville Association of REALTORS® (GGAR). I received Colliers | South Carolina’s Community Service Award in 2014 for activities such as an endowment to sponsor students in regional and national sales-based competitions at the University of Georgia’s Terry School of Business Sales and Marketing Department, as well as donations of multiple GED scholarships for Goodwill Industries.

I also enjoy the community by learning about its history and hiking the many Greenville trails.
