As a commercial lender, I wanted to meet the best of the best and build my network of professionals.  It made perfect sense to join CREW IE and immediately get involved and to become an active member.  I started out helping out with different committees and today I hold an important board position as the Treasurer. I’m able to use my experience in accounting and finance to help the chapter grow by understanding what it takes financially to run this CRE professional organization.  I’m happy to be in the role and to network with amazing and dynamic women and men.

I work with companies with $20MM - $500MM in revenues and provide them with solutions for “1031 exchange trustee services”, banking, lending, treasury management, merchant services and corporate credit cards.

My goal is to bring awareness of how the financial position of the organization will keep CREW IE successful for years to come!  The “heart beat” of the organization is driven by each member.
