I recently accepted a position at the Christman Company in Business Development after working for the Mayor of Lansing during my first years out of college. I feel very fortunate to be able to stay in the Lansing area after graduation and to have had very fulfilling career experiences. I am looking forward to leveraging the skills I have acquired through my previous work and education to develop business for an exceptional, growing company that is head-quartered right here in Michigan. This position allows me to focus on my passion for helping to create a “sense of place” through our built environment including being part of some very exciting urban renewal projects. My main responsibilities at The Christman Company include working with our team to build its professional network, conduct industry and market research, and help to identify future clients and projects. I also assist the marketing team with the proposal process, social media programming, and overall marketing of our company and its services. In my free time I enjoy running the Lansing river trail, yoga at Hill Top in Old Town Lansing, current events, and traveling. Although I have been many places, I am still very proud to call Michigan my home!
