Nicole

VP Corporate Affairs

What projects are you most excited about?

I'm most excited about our Budget Revision Project! We were tasked with the challenge of moving a tedious process into a more user and mobile friendly system. This will allow the field teams to submit budget revisions from MSR Properties and have one system to manage the majority of their work. This excitement is why I love being a part of the team

Gage

What makes someone successful on your team?

Our team juggles many different deadlines, so being able to stay organized is key! It’s also helpful to be very detail oriented and comfortable in a fast paced environment, but most importantly, you need to have a solid sense of humor and to be able to laugh at yourself (and us).
