What/who prompted you to become a member?
I joined WSFS in the Commercial Real Estate Department in October 2012. My manager at the time suggested I join Home Builders Association of Delaware and I am so glad I did!
How long have you been a member?
I believe I have been a member since early 2013.
How/who first got you involved and what did you do?
When I first joined HBADE, I attended events such as bowling and The Leadership and Legacy Ball. A WSFS associate approached me and asked if I was on any of the HBADE committees. I was not, but was interested in becoming more involved. My colleague introduced me to Sunny, and I became part of the membership committee. Through the membership committee I was involved in planning the first Tailgating event at Fordham Brewery in June of this year. I love event planning so when I heard HBADE was thinking of starting an events committee, I jumped right on the opportunity.
What were your expectations when you joined? Have they changed?
I honestly thought I would attend a couple of events a year and that would be the extent of my membership, but now I feel so involved with HBADE. I am now chairing the events committee and looking forward to the planning! I am excited to network with our members at these events.
How has HBADE membership impacted your business?
WSFS has sponsored several events and we love the opportunity to support HBADE. WSFS associates have networked with several HBADE members and lasting relationships have been formed.
Fun fact about yourself?
I did my college internship at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. It was an unbelievable experience and I am so fortunate that I was able to learn about Disney’s business strategies and given the opportunity to meet people from all over the world!
What wisdom/advice do you have for future members?
Get involved, it will be well worth your time! We are looking for members to join our events committee so feel free to reach out to me if you have an interest!
