Like most people, I spent the majority of my teenage years avoiding the age-old question, “what do you want to do with your life?” It wasn’t until an internship in commercial real estate my junior year of college that I finally had an answer to that question. The only other factor I had to figure out was: “where?”

Having grown up right across the bridge in Marin County, I had always envisioned myself working (and eventually living) in San Francisco. As a massive Giants fan and avid frequenter of all the best spots the Marina has to offer, it only made sense I return home to the city I had loved since I was born. Fortunately, after graduating from Chapman University in 2019, I was given that opportunity by Capital Pacific and I couldn’t have asked for a better situation. Every day I am surrounded by talented, hard-working brokers who push me to better than I was the day before.

What’s different about Capital Pacific?

At Capital Pacific, you truly are a member of a team that genuinely wants to help you succeed and grow, not only professionally, but personally. That kind of support and comradery fosters an extremely collaborative and efficient work environment that is seldom seen at larger firms in the industry.

What motivates you to succeed?

Growing up with a single mother, I learned from a very early age the importance of hard work and putting others first. It is my mom’s resilience, determination, and selflessness that motivates me to succeed, not only for myself but for our clients who trust us to perform at our best each and every day.

What do you do to recharge your batteries outside of the office?

Sports have always been a passion of mine and serve as a great outlet for stress that can build up during the workweek. When I'm not in the office, I'm most likely on the golf course, shooting hoops, or playing tennis with some buddies.
