Mission and Goals:
In representing NPMA as the President, I would bring my years of experience as a property professional to continue to strengthen NPMA as the leading organization for Asset Management along with mentoring younger members to become our future NPMA leaders.

I would continue to play an active role in ensuring that the Special Interest Groups (SIG) are receiving the attention and oversight needed to accomplish their missions. I would also ensure that the NPMA Executive Board understands and votes on standards being written by ASTM E53 Committee and other initiatives such as ISO 55000. I would be an active, vocal member of the Executive Board to move the association forward in a positive manner to the benefit of all members. NPMA is one of my passions, as demonstrated by my career-long involvement, and I want to take that to the next level. My goal is to bring my work, leadership and volunteer experiences to the table, offer a fresh view on the Executive Board, and encourage a cohesive team environment.
