Realty Sales & Marketing Assistant

Hometown: Lancaster, South Carolina

How did you become employed at The Clubs of Cordillera Ranch?

My husband is active duty, so we were relocated here in May of 2022. I have been interested in expanding my skills into the real estate industry, so when I found the job listing online, I was very eager to apply!

What past work history prepared you for this position? 

I worked as an administrative assistant for a wedding venue in my hometown for two years, and while working there I obtained skills in marketing, contract drafting and interacting with the public. I feel that my time there immensely helped prepare me for my position here at Cordillera Ranch.

What do you like most about working at Cordillera Ranch? 

My position allows me to dip my feet into several different areas of Cordillera, and because of this I am constantly learning and growing as a professional! I also love that the staff here is like a family. They have been so nice and inclusive, which was exactly what I needed since moving here.

What do you do in your free time? 

I enjoy reading and taking my dog on walks and rides to new places.

What is your favorite smell, and why? 

Breakfast food! I could eat breakfast food for every meal and never get tired of it! The smell of bacon and pancakes always puts me in a better mood.

If you could time travel, where would you go? 

Where wouldn’t I go? I would go see the Roman Empire at its strongest and at its fall. I would go see the Great Pyramid being built. I would go see the Great Wall of China being built. I would go back to the Roaring 20’s and see if I like flapper dresses. I would go back to the Victorian age and try on the huge dresses. I would go back and meet every major historical figure I could. As long as I could get back to present day, I would time travel everywhere.

With holidays upon us, what is your favorite family tradition? 

I have several, most of which have not been recontinued since the beginning of Covid unfortunately. For Thanksgiving, all of the kids in the family would go outside after lunch and play tag football together. My favorite holiday is Christmas with the colors, the music, the food, but most especially the decorations. Christmas makes me so happy! On Christmas Eve, our entire family would go with the rest of our church family to sing carols to the older members of the church. And on Christmas morning, our family would gather at my parents’ house, have brunch and open presents. 

If a genie granted you three wishes, what would they be? 

My first wish would be unlimited free airplane tickets to wherever I wanted to go, whenever I wanted. Second wish, unlimited space for books! And my third wish would be that all shelter dogs found a good and loving home.

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? 

Growing up, I was always considered very tall and slender, and was told by many people that I could be a model. Well, that stuck for a few years, and I did do some local modeling jobs, but as I grew up, I realized that I was not at all cut out for that industry!

Who would your ideal guests at a dinner party be? 

Queen Elizabeth, Cleopatra and the Goddess Athena. Imagine the conversations and things I could learn!

Favorite quote or motto? 

“The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem.” – Jack Sparrow, Pirates of the Caribbean.

What’s on your bucket list? 

The biggest item on my bucket list is to visit all fifty states! And I do not count driving straight through or flying into an airport.
