Vice President, Development
“I love being able to create something – sometimes out of nothing.”
Traveling, reading, being in nature.
It all started on a Caribbean family vacation when I was 14 years old. We stepped into our hotel – a grand lobby filled with energy, passion and welcoming people. I could feel it. At that moment, I knew that this was the industry for me.
I’m surrounded by talented people who love what they do. I have an incredible opportunity to share new visions with the world – and make an impact. At the end of the day, I want every experience to be perfect, memorable and lasting.
Since joining Coury Hospitality in 2011, my favorite project has been working on the $2 million dollar renovation of the Ambassador Tulsa. I’m so proud of the way we balanced rich history with modern design in a way that only we can. This project jump-started my development career and taught me so much about the business, lessons I use on a daily basis.
