1. Who, or what, motivates you to be a better leader?
My dedicated team members motivate me each day to be a better leader. I see their hard work and continuous growth, as well as their personal care and investment in the properties we build. They step back and take the time to understand how these buildings affect our communities, and that passion is certainly an inspiration to myself as a leader.

Learning the importance of building a trusting relationship with clientele has been instrumental in my leadership development. Since LMJ’s inception our repeat and referral customers have relied on LMJ’s reputation and the service we provide. As the president of the firm, I strive to create a team that is passionate and caring, and puts our clients needs at the forefront.
