Healthcare Practice Group / Senior Living

Having first-hand knowledge and success as a senior housing operator gives me a clear understanding of what it takes to make a community great for key stakeholders; including residents and their loved ones, ownership and staff.

I strive to bring value to my clients with that knowledge along with my vast network of industry experts to help navigate the complicated transaction of developing, buying, selling and operating seniors housing.
