I have 35 years of experience, and specialize in the field of community association operations with specific knowledge in the area of condominium, townhome, and single family community association development, operations and management. I have published on such topics as sustainable lifestyles in community associations, managing developing communities and managing community associations. I have testified on construct defect litigation. I work with wonderful volunteers, both within my industry organization and as leaders for their community association. Most have an altruistic desire to improve their community and their industry, with no direct benefit other than a sense of accomplishment in knowing that they succeeded.
