I am a Northern California native, born and raised just north of San Francisco in Petaluma. I set a goal to become a successful broker at a young age.
I grew up horseback riding, and through that sport I cultivated relationships with a couple successful real estate brokers who have helped me on my path toward reaching my goal.
I attended Sonoma State University where I obtained a Bachelor’s of Arts in Economics and graduated Cum Laude with Distinction. While at Sonoma State, I worked at Keegan & Coppin, a full service commercial real estate brokerage firm in the North Bay of the Bay Area. There I worked with an established retail real estate agent and developed a specific interest in retail brokerage. At Keegan and Coppin, I gained knowledge and experience that I currently use in my career as a commercial real estate professional. After graduation, I connected with Dave Lucas of Capital Pacific and am now his Investment Analyst.
Working under a high volume, successful broker in the retail commercial real estate industry has been a great first step to getting my footing in the world of real estate. There is a vast amount of information for me to learn in the business and Capital Pacific provides the best opportunity. Working with Dave allows the perfect opportunity to expand my knowledge and use my skills and education in real world business application. I’m optimistic about my position at Capital Pacific, and my career in commercial real estate. I can’t wait to see where this opportunity takes me.

How did your early life shape your outlook?
I grew up horseback riding, a sport that requires hard work and self-discipline. My trainers taught me to never complain and to always work hard towards my goals.
