How long have you been a member of TCREW: I have been a member of TCREW since 2012 (but, have been attending meetings since 2009! I am currently on the Board of Directors and am also the CREW Network Delegate for our chapter.
How has your TCREW membership been impactful in your own personal growth and development: My TCREW Membership has been critical to some of the growth and development of my leadership skills. Also, the relationships I have made couldn’t have been found anywhere else. Thanks to TCREW, I am now surround by a group of incredibly smart women ….that I also like to call my friends.
How do you view TCREW’s impact on the Triangle: TCREW is a place where women can come together to have an impact on the real estate community. TCREW members work in tandem to form teams, identify challenges, solve problems and work on projects together – it’s incredible.
How can we as women in the commercial real estate industry best make an impact in mentoring the next generation of women in CRE: We can best make an impact by remembering that as we grow…. it’s important to bring along other young women and encourage them to develop in their profession, to network with people and to aim to meet their full potential. When we support the growth and empowerment of young ladies and each other, we raise the quality of life for everyone! This is because women lead businesses, their communities, they fight for their children and give voices to issues that are important to our collective future.
