Tell us a little about your Tallahassee Story. What brought you to Tallahassee?
I moved to Tallahassee at the beginning of 2022 for a job promotion with my management company, Hotel Equities.

Tell us more about your involvement in Tallahassee.
Since moving to Tallahassee, I’ve learned that this city has a lot to offer. It is up to you to go out and find out what’s going on. One way I have really been able to tap into the community was by joining the Chamber. Through this, I was able to join Access and meet other like-minded individuals such as myself and learn about Leads Groups and other organizations, such as United Way Emerging Leaders where I sit on the Fundraising Committee. This is just the beginning for me as I am learning more about Tallahassee and meeting new people every day.
