Tell us more about your daily tasks: 

As an Associate in McDonald Hopkins’ real estate and commercial finance practice groups, I am engaged in borrower and lender-side representation on a variety of business matters.  I focus on community development and project financing, representing investors, lenders and developers using historic preservation tax credits, renewable energy tax credits, and new markets tax credits. Additionally, I assist with our firm’s solar energy development practice.

Your hobbies: 

I enjoy spending time with friends and family, cooking, and traveling as often as I am able to.  I previously studied abroad in Australia and am currently planning a trip to Iceland. Additionally, I enjoy watching Cleveland sports and continuing to explore Northeast Ohio.  I also remain closely connected to my law school and undergraduate university, serving as a member of their respective Alumni Association Board of Directors.

Why are you a member of the Urban Land Institute Cleveland? 

Being new to the Cleveland area, ULI Cleveland has been a great resource to connect me to others in the real estate industry and stay up-to-date with trends in the local and national markets.  I’ve truly enjoyed helping grow the value of ULI Cleveland through my involvement on ULI Cleveland’s Membership and Sponsorship Committee and Women’s Leadership Initiative.
