I’ve been servicing my clients at Colliers International for nine great years.  As a member of the Office Service Division, I work collaboratively both Landlords and Tenants by bringing a fresh, creative, and solution- oriented approach to the assignment.  I feel it’s of the utmost importance to put my client’s needs and objectives first. This approach is the foundation of my business, and remnants that remain from my prior career in hospitality. Because I work in assisting landlords and tenants, my ability to see resolution from either prospective results in quick and clean transactions.

My focus when working on Landlord projects is targeting preferred tenants and securing their occupancy to increase the return on their investment. Some of my past and present clients include the YWCA, Kamehameha Schools, Aloha United Way, and the Bank of Hawaii.

I highly value my work with local non-profit organizations. It’s a privilege to assist those who assist others. I’ve enjoyed working with Hawaiian Hope, an organization dedicated to assuring each youth has access to a computer; TCDI of Hawaii, an organization that provides transitional and life enhancing services to adults living with intellectual and developmental disabilities; and Guide Dogs of Hawaii, providing adaptive and mobility aids for the blind. My favorite place to meet with clients is over a meal, where I feel do some of my best thinking.  My friends always ask me for suggestions when it comes to seeking a place to eat.  If I’m not eating, I’m burning it off in the sun, hiking, biking and surfing.

A proud graduate of the University of Washington, I hold a bachelors degree in Psychology, with an emphasis in Sports Marketing. 

As homage to those mentors and coaches who have greatly influenced my life, I’ve recently spent four years volunteering  as a track & field coach at my high school alma mater.  One of my stregnths is motivating and encouraging students to reach beyond their expectations.
