I started my employment here back in 2007. My first goal was to become a full time employee. Within a year I was promoted to a Sergeant in the Public Safety Department. I continued to give my best and take on challenges. I then received a promotion to Lieutenant, giving me more management responsibilities. A few years went by and I was blessed with the opportunity to be the Director of SVLA Public Safety Department. During my time as the Director of Public Safety I was mentored and learned as much as possible regarding HOA management and leadership. I asked Scott Eckert and Jeff Morgan (our previous Board Presidents of SVLA) a few important questions. One question was “One day I would like to become the General Manager. What do you recommend I learn so that when the opportunity is available I will be as ready as possible?” Both were contestant with recommending learning more about financials and understanding budgets. I immediately signed up for a financial class. Throughout my 10 years working for SVLA I’ve received an abundance of support and guidance. Here is my promise to you all: I will always be honest and operate with integrity. I will be transparent and always look out for the best interest of SVLA. I will improve our communication with our residents, BODs and staff. We will continue to improve our customer service and strive to exceed expectations.
