My background is in higher education. I taught German language and literature as well as comparative studies at The Ohio State University, Miami University, and Otterbein College. While at Otterbein, I decided to take my career in a different direction. I entered the real estate profession and am licensed as a salesperson in the state of Ohio with HER Realtors. Real estate agents are called upon to educate their clients in many situations, and I felt at home in my role as a consultant to buyers and sellers.
After selling real estate for several years, I became the trainer/business development coordinator and assistant to the manager for the Real Living HER Northeast Regional office. I focused on helping new agents get their businesses up and running, providing training for all agents in the office, and coordinating meetings and events. My role expanded to a regional level, and I worked with real estate agents and support staff in three offices in the Northeast Region. I then moved into the position of Program Coordinator–Professional Development and Special Projects for Real Living HER and Real Living Realty Services. Currently, I am the Director of Training and Professional Development for HER Realtors.
As Director of Training and Professional Development, I am responsible for the overall direction and execution of training and education programs at HER Realtors. This includes classroom and online courses, real estate continuing education, and office and regional training. I develop courses for agents, monitor and evaluate course effectiveness and results, and work with leadership at the company to ensure that skills learned in the classroom are reinforced and supported in the field. I create bi-weekly meeting materials for office business and coaching meetings. I provide technology training to new and existing agents as well. In addition to those duties, I also oversee the transaction management platform, rDocs, and present in-person and online training to agents and staff to increase usage of the platform.
