HOBBY/PASSION: My hobby, what some might call an obsession, is collecting wine.
MOST REWARDING CAREER EXPERIENCE: My greatest passion is mentorship and education. Through my work with JLLU, the comprehensive training course we provide for new brokers, I have had the opportunity to shape the curriculum for younger generations. I am in a position now to help shepherd the careers of younger brokers, and that is the most rewarding part of my career.
