As the Chief Executive Officer for the Association and the regional MLS, my job is simple: keep the machinery running efficiently and effectively, make sure the staff have what they need to perform their duties responsibilities in a world-class organization, and synthesize the mass of information that our industry produces daily and try to make some sense of it. Then, I convert all of this into a great member experience. Simple!
As the Communications and Marketing Director, I oversee all the messaging and the manner in which it's delivered to our members. This includes managing our weekly newsletter, social media presence, the members-only Facebook group, and our MLS Talk listserv. With a background in visual arts, design, photography, and videography, I also help to develop original graphics, advertisements, and photo and video content. If you're at one of our many events and see someone walking around with a camera, that's me! As the unofficial tech guru of the office, I also work with staff to research and implement new technology and/or processes to better serve our members and reach them where they live, something that has become more important since the time of COVID.
As the Government Affairs Director, I work to advocate for the real estate industry through programming that promotes the election of pro-REALTOR® candidates; engage, inform, and activate membership and local government officials on key local and state real estate policies; provide staff support to the REALTOR® Political Action Committee that invests members' voluntary contributions to protect and promote the real estate industry; and support the Aspire North memberships’ involvement in community projects to further grow and strengthen our region.
As the Financial Officer for Aspire North REALTORS®, I work directly with our members and staff on all of the financial aspects of the Association. If you have questions about your billing, don’t hesitate to reach out to me.
