Curriculm Vitae

As Vice President of Management for Professional Community Management (PCM), she was responsible for exceeding the clients’ needs of over eighty associations amounting to 23,000 homes.

During her tenure at PCM she was responsible for hiring and training management and administrative staff, establishing on-going training for the management staff, mediating association disputes, attending board meetings on a regular basis, marketing, setting up large on-site communities with staff and procedures and being responsible for a four million dollar annual departmental budget and the annual contract renewals of eighty associations.

Her expertise in consistently providing excellent service to homeowner boards assured long term relationships with communities and developers. Establishing new communities by setting up the first rules and regulations, annual meetings, architectural guidelines, annual calendar and first homeowner budgets provided a solid basis for continued productive growth. Working to establish a community correctly, according to the documents and state law produced associations that function smoothly and efficiently with comfortable reserves and well-maintained common elements. Consulting with already established communities with problems provided another type of challenge that was met with enthusiasm and hard work. Creating systematized filing, organizing procedures to provide access for litigation research, working with experts in refurbishing buildings, asphalt, roofs, landscaping and recreational facilities provided another type of service. She has worked with boards in charge of 80 unit condominiums to large master planned communities with many thousands of units.

The designation is based on education, professional experience, service and a thesis.
