Tell us about an accomplishment you are proud of.
I've been at Tanger now for a little less than a year, but I am extremely proud of what we accomplished in this short time. We've implemented a new ERP and CRM. We are about to launch a new document management system and help desk ticketing system. These strategic initiatives have positioned the company well for years to come. But, perhaps more importantly, I'm proud of the team I built. Without them, none of this would have been possible.

What about CRE ignites your passion? How about in your current role?
The people. I've learned so much from my peers and continue to learn from them every day. It's one big giant support network.

What advice would you give on how to achieve work/life balance?
I'm still trying to figure this one out, but I had a manager who told me that work is like digging a hole at the beach. Every time you dig a hole the water comes and fills it up with more sand. You'll never really get to the bottom of the sand. That same is true with work - there will always be more work. Sometimes it's best to invest time in yourself - sleep, eat, and exercise. Bringing the best version of you to work goes a long way!
