As a tax credit attorney, I counsel investors, community development entities, nonprofit organizations and developers in all aspects of financing tax credit and real estate transactions. I help clients navigate transactions that generate state and federal historic rehabilitation tax credits and state and federal new markets tax credits.
In addition to my tax credit practice, I have also represented public and private companies on real estate dispositions and acquisitions. I have experience drafting and negotiating purchase and sale agreements, construction documents, loan documents, as well as leasing and property management agreements.
I have been involved in the strategic planning and analysis of potential developments through underwriting and market research on multi-million dollar projects in the St. Louis area and throughout the US.
Previously, I was the Associate General Counsel and Investment Analyst at The Koman Group. During school, I interned at the St. Louis Planning & Urban Design Agency and the St. Louis Housing Authority.
Passionate about my community, I volunteer my time as a Director of the St. Louis Chapter of Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW), as a Corporate Achiever for the MS Society, and I am a Member of the Urban Land Institute. I am also the President and Founder of Gateway to Change, a non-profit organization committed to supporting underrepresented social service organizations in the St. Louis area.
Committed to leadership, I have gone through the Focus St. Louis Emerging Leaders Program. As a sought-after speaker and presenter, I provide insights and advice on real estate and economic development trends in the St. Louis area, and, to date, I have spoken on three different panels for the Urban Land Institute.
