Why is it important to your business to be a part of The SVO?

The SVO is an excellent organization that represents the interest of all businesses, regardless of size,  advocates on issues that concerns businesses; and offers great networking opportunities.

What was your first job like? 

I started working when I was 5 years old in my family’s business doing whatever my dad told me to ... and have never stopped.

Describe your current job.

I represent Tenants/ Buyers and Landlords/Sellers in leasing and sales of commercial real estate.

What has been a career high point for you thus far?   

I have to think on that one, I feel like there have been so many great projects that I have worked on with many incredible clients and professionals. I am proud of the real estate work I have done in Downtown San Jose professionally and the leadership and civic work through the San Jose Downtown Association.

What words of advice can you share for other professional women working in the Silicon Valley? 

Silicon Valley is a very dynamic area with lots of opportunity for women that is limited only by your imagination and willingness to apply yourself.

Wondering how you can help during this time? Social distancing doesn't mean social isolation. We still need to support the nonprofits in our region who are continuing to provide critical services to the people of our community day and night—ensuring our most vulnerable populations are being housed, fed and cared for. However, they could really use our help in a number of ways: donating extra supplies, offering your time as a volunteer or through any generous donations in order to sustain themselves.
