I am motivated by building a team (of really great people!!). I take a tremendous amount of pride in the accomplishments of members of our Canada ICI team. Not only have we been fortunate in developing accomplished and driven real estate finance professionals, but we’ve also amassed a group of great people who are solid ambassadors of our organization with shared values.
What I like most about working at CICI is its energy. There is an underlying positive social pressure throughout our organization from Calgary to Ottawa; it’s quite infectious. Growth, collaboration, teamwork, an athlete’s “grinding” mentality, and high integrity are some of the virtues that an overwhelming majority of our team members have. These values resonate with me in many ways, and I value the relationships that I share with many of our Canada ICI team.
I am working towards learning just a bit more to become better every day.
The best part of my day? When I’ve had the time to process my day and the experiences along with it.
I am proud of my family, friends, and work.
