I was delighted and honored to attend the Annual Women's Leadership Summit as the 2019 Marcy Handshaw Scholarship recipient in November. I left that day feeling inspired, empowered, and ready to conquer my Everest!

Since then, I have started my second semester as a Sophomore at Virginia Commonwealth University and have embraced delving into business classes. I am currently working towards my Bachelor’s Degree in Business with a concentration in Real Estate and a minor in Entrepreneurship. I am an active member of the Kornblau Real Estate Program and Rho Epsilon Real Estate Fraternity. I continue to enjoy my internship at Greater Richmond Partnership where I am learning about Economic Development in the Region. This summer, I look forward to taking part in UrbanPlan through my Principles of Real Estate course at VCU.

Thank you all for your continued support of my education and for making me feel so welcomed at CREW events. I am lucky to have an amazing group of women to look up to and inspire me within the industry. I look forward to attending more events with CREW Richmond in 2020!
