I am an analyst in the Capital Finance department of Carmel Partners, a national firm that invests in and builds luxury multifamily products. Before joining the Capital Finance team, I was an analyst in Carmel Partners’ Fund Management group for two-and-a-half years. During college, I interned at Shorenstein Properties in the Property Management and Construction division. I also worked at the Bay Area Council Economic Institute, where I researched housing affordability in the Bay Area. I graduated from Brown University in 2018 with an A.B. in Economics.
CREW SF Background:
I joined CREW in 2019. After attending my first CREW meeting, I became the liaison to Rising Leaders and for the Communications Committee. Currently, I am the chair of the Communications Committee.
What do you like most about your job and/or industry?
I enjoy seeing a project throughout its development lifecycle - from purchase, development, lease-up, stabilization, and all the way to sale. You get to see a whole different side to the same building at each stage, which is very satisfying.
What advice do you want to give a new CREW SF member?
Don’t be afraid to take on a leadership role. Even if you are not experienced in what the role entails, other CREW SF members will support you, allowing you to grow while at the same time supporting CREW’s initiatives.
What has been the highlight during your membership with CREW SF?
Attending the monthly meetings has always been a highlight.
How has CREW SF benefitted you personally and/or professionally?
CREW SF allows me to connect with other real estate professionals who work in aspects of the industry with whom I otherwise would not have experience. In addition, CREW SF gives me the chance to develop different skills than I would in my day-to-day work.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
In my free time, I enjoy backpacking; in the summer of 2020, I hiked the John Muir Trail. This year, we did number of hikes around Lakes Basin, which is north of Tahoe, and at Point Reyes.
What’s a fun fact that you’d like to share about yourself?
I am a San Francisco native. In San Francisco, census data indicates that there are more cats and dogs than children, so I consider myself one of the lucky few to have been able to grow up here. One of my fondest memories was going to sleep and waking up hearing the cable car bells down the block from our apartment.
