I have over twenty five years in the real estate development field. Emphasis was on retail, particularly, regional malls for a large corporation and involved managing large multimillion dollar projects from project conception to grand opening. I led the project team in all aspects of the development process including site identification, land acquisition, zoning, site planning, pro forma development and budgeting, design and construction. I have considerable experience in negotiating with anchor tenants, joint venture partners and zoning officials.
In addition, I started a small business for my own development projects and have a real estate brokers license with the state Georgia on inactive status.
In mid life I returned to school to study school counseling and did limited work in that field. I also received a certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy, but did not practice.
I have served on 2 nonprofit boards.
