As the Senior Vice President of Real Estate Development at NexCore Group, I bring a cross-disciplinary knowledge to nationwide healthcare, senior living, and science and technology real estate development projects. I enjoy the team building, collaboration, and problem-solving required to successfully develop new building projects that meet our clients’ long-term business needs.

With more than 30 years of industry experience, I’ve developed a diverse professional skill set that spans all aspects of the development process, including: 

  • Acquisition
  • Design
  • Entitlements
  • Financial Structuring
  • Construction and Operations. 

I pride myself on my ability to understand various stakeholder needs. More than anything, I enjoy working with people who are creative experts and who are dedicated to bringing innovative real estate solutions to life.

That innovation and dedication showed up in a specific NexCore project. We had been hired by a hospital to develop a 4-storie 80,000 GSF medical office building on their campus.  We had finished the construction documents, had our permits and were ready to break ground in one month.  The CEO of the hospital called and said they had changed their mind and we needed to add another floor to the building!  We were able to change direction on the design and amend our permits in record time.  We were able to deliver the project with only a 1-month delay to the original schedule and meet our client’s business goals.

That’s why I love what I do.
