Q: What do you do when you’re not working?
A: I sit on the IREM Chapter 39 Board and in 2015 will be the Legislative Chairman. I also like to read, explore the Hampton Roads area with my dogs and hang out with friends.

Q: What excites you most about coming to work at DRE?
A: In the 10 years I have lived in Virginia, I have always wanted an opportunity to work with Divaris, but I always imagined that it would be in the retail sector. Never in a million years did I imagine that I would be given the responsibility to manage this historical treasure AND work with Divaris.
