Senior Client Services Specialist
As the senior client services specialist for the Arizona Retail Services Team with Colliers International, I manage all aspects of marketing, project management, transaction and due diligence services. Our team specializes in the sale and leasing of retail properties, representing landlords, tenants and investors. In partnership with the team’s eight brokers and client services coordinator, I develop strategies, pitches and proposals to win new business.
Leveraging my extensive marketing, graphic design and industry experience, I design and execute best-in-class print and digital marketing collateral, and deliver creative marketing solutions tailored to each property and client. I create comprehensive property marketing campaigns, elevating exposure and increasing speed-to-market for the team’s listings. My careful attention to detail and ability to anticipate and resolve issues enables me to efficiently manage the team’s listings, prospects, proposals and transactions.
With exceptional skills in Adobe Creative Suite (InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop), Constant Contact email marketing and CoStar research, I enhance the team’s services in the marketplace. As a proactive partner, I stay at the forefront of marketing trends to provide leading-edge solutions.
I thoroughly enjoy the fast-paced nature of commercial real estate and the challenge of managing the team’s diverse requirements. I am committed to adding value and delivering results. Colleagues describe me as optimistic, adaptable and innovative, with an outgoing and friendly approach, who fosters their trust and respect.
My marketing career began when I established my own boutique creative studio, specializing in destination wedding photography and graphic design. I have leveraged my skills to serve as an in-house designer and project manager for various organizations. Prior to joining Colliers, I was a client services specialist with CBRE Phoenix, providing innovative marketing services for a highly successful retail investment sales team and retail leasing team..
Previously, I served as a client services manager for Grand Canyon University Athletics, directing multi-channel digital and traditional marketing campaigns. I also managed on-campus promotions, and worked with campus operations and programs to increase student attendance and improve the fan experience at athletic events.
When not in the office, I spend time traveling and attending local sporting events with my husband. I also enjoy cheering on the Denver Broncos. My other interests include photography, board games and, more recently, cooking.

As a resourceful and performance-driven professional, I successfully manage multiple projects and tasks on behalf of the brokers. I am responsible for designing print and digital property marketing materials, drafting letters of intent, booking transaction vouchers, preparing correspondence, organizing and scheduling conference calls, coordinating broker and client meetings, and maintaining client activity reports.
