Years in real estate: 30
What real estate associations or organizations are you a member of: AIA Conn., Conn. Main Street Center, Conn. Trust for Historic Preservation, Construction Institute, and CEDS Strategic Plan sub-committee.
How have you navigated obstacles to achieve success in your career: One of the most important tools I have worked to develop during my career is a flexible point of view. This means I strive to see what appears to be an obstacle, not as an obstacle, but as an opportunity to look at the issue from a different point of view. Shifting my point of view allows me to see what I cannot see if my mind is fixed and rigid. This mental flexibility allows me to adapt, and in adaptation, I can find a creative solution where none seem to exist.
What do you do for fun: Hike, golf, and take groups of people on journeys to ancient sites, like Teotihuacan or Oaxaca in Mexico, and Machu Picchu in Peru.
