I am a portfolio manager of 13 communities and handle community transitions
My father worked at Cardinal and told me that they were looking for part-time assistance. I worked part-time until they offered me a full-time position.
Cardinal Management is very understanding when it comes to having to care for yourself/family, which provides a secure feeling that I do not have to choose between my family or my job.
Learning to let go and not take things so personally.
Cardinal Management developed my career. When I initially started working here, I had no idea what a community manager was, I knew nothing about this industry, and did not intend for it to be a long-term job/career. Once I started working here full-time, I enjoyed the energy and found the industry to be very interesting. I wanted to become more involved, and they were more than willing to teach me and help me grow into a portfolio manager.
