As a current regional representative for young professionals, my primary focus is to advance the interests of young professionals within the IRWA and the industry. I am very interested in exploring mentoring opportunities and really enjoy helping others that are newer to the industry to develop personally and professionally. 

I have more than a decade of experience helping a variety of clients, primarily in the transportation and public infrastructure markets. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Real Estate and Urban Economics from the University of Connecticut and a Project Management Certificate from Bryant University. I am a certified Project Management Professional (PMP) by the Project Management Institute and recently earned my Senior Right of Way Professional (SR/WA) designation from the IRWA. I am a licensed Real Estate Broker and am working toward an appraisal license.  In addition to the IRWA, I am active in several other organizations including the Boston Society of Civil Engineers as an affiliate member, and as a member of the Urban Land Institute’s Infrastructure Council for Boston and New England. I am currently a Project Manager, leading the O. R. Colan Associates office near Boston, Massachusetts.
