COO – P3/Real Estate Advisory
Based: denver, co
Over the course of my 25-year career, I have worked in various senior leadership roles in both the public and private sectors. I currently serve as Chief Operating Officer for Real Estate and P3 Advisory at WT Partnership. I am charged with leading a dynamic and multidisciplinary team that delivers world class real estate, technical advisory and project delivery services to both public and private-sector clients.
Prior to WT, I served as President at Capstone Development Partners. During my tenure at Capstone, I helped the firm develop a new property and asset management company and supported the successful pursuit and delivery of multiple P3 projects. I also spent more than 20 years in the public sector serving in senior leadership roles at Arizona State University, Oklahoma State University and Northern Kentucky University. My area of expertise is in Public-Private Partnerships, project management, auxiliary operations, and student housing.
My approach to leading WT’s Real Estate and P3 Advisory Services is largely inspired by my extensive experience in the public sector and previous experience as a client and user of advisory services. This gives me first-hand insight into the expectations and needs our clients have for reliable advisory services and objective guidance. I am committed to ensuring WT exceeds expectations and delivers outstanding support and reliable information that will allow our clients to make well-informed decisions.
I thrive on the opportunity to help our partners solve complex challenges and deliver transformative new buildings and infrastructure projects that make a positive and meaningful impact on their communities. Regardless of the industry and market, quality facilities have the power to create a sense of place, facilitate learning, deliver services, and generate revenue to support organizational mission and values. Devising innovative and effective strategies to develop and deliver these new facilities is my passion.
I am a graduate of Pittsburgh State University where I majored in Political Science. I also hold a master’s from Oklahoma State and Ph.D. from Indiana State University. I currently live in Denver and have two grown daughters. When I am not busy with work, you can find me on the hiking trails or fly fishing in the mountains.
