I joined Dolben in October, 2015 as a Leasing Consultant at the View at Mill Run. While at the View, I excelled in my position and Dolben promoted and transferred me to The Gates of Owings Mills in July, 2016 as the Assistant Property Manager. In 2016 I received my National Apartment Leasing Professional (NALP) designation. With prior experience, professionalism and proven ability to master difficult challenges, Dolben then promoted me to Property Manager in March, 2017. During my time at The Gates I received my Certified Apartment Manager (CAM) designation as well as took on LIHTC. In October 2018, I was then promoted to The View at Mill Run as Property Manager and now manage the lease up of the second phase of The View at Mill Run Phase. I appreciate that Dolben promotes growth opportunities for employees and supports and encourages employees to complete industry training and certifications.
I joined Dolben in 2001 as a part-time Leasing Consultant. I applied for the position since it was convenient to my home and it sounded like an interesting job…little did I realize that it would be a life-shaping event. Though I had worked for another Property Management company prior to joining Dolben, I immediately fell in love with Dolben. I was struck not only by how professional Dolben was, but also how ethical their principles and how well they treat their employees and their residents. As I transitioned to a full-time employee, I also realized that Dolben deeply valued education and had an impressive list of employees who had been internally promoted during their tenure. It was very easy to take advantage of the excellent tools available to me through Dolben. Through Dolben I took part in online industry training classes, I graduated from Dolben University and earned my NALP, CAM and CAPS designations through the Maryland Multi Housing Association.
Throughout my time at Dolben, I have been able to combine my love of managing a business with that of interpersonal communication, and I have thrived in the multifamily industry. I thoroughly enjoyed my time managing properties; I was promoted from Assistant Property Manager to Property Manager and enjoyed the fast pace of a successful lease-up and then maintaining the property after stability. Dolben then promoted me to my current position of Regional Property Manager. I currently manage seven properties and seven dynamic teams. My favorite part of my career is that I am never bored; in property management you never have the same day twice and it keeps you on your toes! I appreciate working in collaboration with my Dolben colleagues and learn something new every day. I am lucky enough to manage the best property teams in the business and am humbled how dedicated each one of them is in fulfilling customer service to our residents and meeting business goals for our owners. Team Dolben rocks!
