Get to know more about me
The interview goes into detail about my family, commercial real estate career and Organize My Space Calgary so you can learn more about me.
I thought I would round out the article with a bit more about my work history so here goes!
My work history
I am an accomplished property management professional and I dedicated my entire 3-year career to the commercial real estate industry in Calgary, Alberta.
I successfully managed all types and classes of real estate including office, industrial, retail and residential on behalf of large institutional organizations such as O&Y Enterprise, Brookfield Properties, GWL Realty Advisors and Oxford Properties.
Customer service and sustainability
In my various management roles, I had a deep passion for customer service excellence, sustainability and master strategic planning.
I am well known for my trailblazing programs and innovative projects with far reaching positive impact within the company itself but also the commercial real estate industry as whole.
One example of this is the comprehensive waste and recycling program created at Centennial Place. It was the first of its kind in Calgary and across Oxfords portfolio and continues to set the bar today with a 92% diversion rate. This program is considered best in class by the City of Calgary and it won the Corporate Leadership award in 2017 from the Alberta Recycling Council.
Volunteering and giving back has always been a must for me. I was the longest standing member of the BOMA Calgary Industry Standards and Recognition committee and I served as a committee member, vice-chair and chair for over 15 years.
The ISR committee is responsible for updating the Certificate of Excellence/TOBY/Earth/Pinnacle award criteria at the local level, judging the local award entrants and the awards event itself.
I was also a national and international judge for the CEO/TOBY awards for over 10 years.
PS - This is where I met Mark Kolke many years ago!
