Summary

I am a property manager for Mercy Housing in Louisville, Kentucky. I am responsible for the operations of HUD PRAC 202 properties.

I have worked in facilities management for nearly 25 years in a wide variety of capacities and properties. I have managed both government and privately owned properties - retail, schools, health care facility, high rise office space and residential.

My experience includes full profit and loss responsibility, budget construction and management, purchasing, personnel functions, development and implementation of work control and billing software. I have also put together bid packages for various building maintenance services including architectural and engineering services and worked on property acquisition as well.

I have owned Deadblue Media for 10 years consulting on marketing and branding campaigns for small to mid size organizations and producing graphics, audio and video materials in support of those campaigns and marketing tactics.

Additionally, I coordinate medical and building missions to Central America with several churches in coordination with our partners in Nicaragua and Costa Rica.

I am confident in my management skills and my ability to administer your operation efficiently and effectively in challenging times like these.

My range of experience makes me a very flexible, widely knowledgeable candidate for your organization if you are looking for a management solution, not just someone to fill a position.
