What is your dream job/career: Property Manager focusing on space planning
Why/inspiration for your dream job/career: Even though I have many classes to take and facets of my industry to learn about, I fell in love with my Property Management course this past spring semester. This class taught me about tenant relocation and how to meet clients’ needs by creating a space that is used to the maximum. I want to be able to tap into a person's feelings either in a public, private, or workplace setting by using my skills of design and planning to create the “space” of their needs. My goal is to exceed client expectations when undergoing extensive renovations or significant relocations.
