I’ve called Nest and the Flock family of companies my work home for nearly a decade. I got my start professionally after a Teach for America position led me to the classroom in Washington, DC, where I taught 1st and 2nd grade for many years. The classroom, believe it or not, was a window into the world of sophisticated property management. Every day was different, chaos was never far, problems were abundant, resources limited, and there were high expectations for teachers to be responsive if not transformational. Every single day I walked through the doors, I knew I could make a difference. At Flock, the same is true. I’m called upon to stand at the front of the room, streamline our operational systems, lead dynamic teams and ensure we deliver the best in class services to every resident, every property, every client, and every team member every single day. I believe that business can be an incredible agent of change and, as a purpose-driven Flock, we’re able to transform an industry that hasn’t always contributed to the world we want to be part of. I’m thrilled to lead a team that is redefining such an important field and contributing to a stronger, more inclusive, and equitable community.
I still find my way back to the world of education as an enthusiastic board member for FLOC (For the Love Of Children). This stellar community resource provides educational support and services beyond the classroom to help District students succeed from second grade through college and beyond.
