Small Business Owner and Real Estate in Kansas City, Missouri
I am a real estate investor, Certified Professional Home Inspector, and freelance Copywriter/Marketing Consultant. I have over 20 years of practical experience in: real estate development; construction; home remodeling and rehabilitation; construction planning and project management; and building materials sales. I am also a Zen Priest and an instructor for Buddha Dharma University. In my free time (pun intended), I serve as Managing Member for an independent, action and advocacy organization for the defense of human rights and the promotion of compassion and greater societal well-being.
During my 15 years of service as a corporate General Manager, I gained valuable practical experience in leadership, relationship building, nurturing customer relations, change management, and running a successful business through dramatic market downturns. I am a pragmatic and resourceful professional manager, as well as a compassionate leader and influential communicator, who understands the critical value of clear communication and inspiring people to high levels of performance.
I love my friends and I'm always making new ones. I don't really think you should ever stop making new friends or learning new things. I am proud to be a United States Marine Corps veteran (USMC) and member of Leaders Excellence (MLE) at Harvard Square, the American Business Women’s Association (ABWA), and the National Association of Professional Women (NAPW).
I welcome opportunities to network with realtors, real estate investment professionals, financial institutions, attorneys (real estate, probate, divorce, etc.), and others for the purpose of mutually beneficial real estate business transaction. I also welcome opportunities to assist organizations in formulating successful marketing campaigns, as well as prospects to be a positive influence in politics, public administration, public policy, and social services.
