Through the past month, we’ve encountered a lot of change and uncertainty about the future. Though at times it might seem scary, we are all in this together. Although I am working remotely, I am always here to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have. Please feel free to call or email me at any time!

Also, please make sure your contact information is updated and correct. We will be utilizing One Call Now messaging system to provide voice, text and email messages as the situation evolves and new changes are implemented. This is the best way to stay informed of new policies, so providing the correct contact information is essential!

We will get through this as a united community, and I look forward to seeing each and every one of you when we are on the other side of this. We are all doing our part to prevent the spread of the virus and flatten the curve. Thank you for your sacrifices to help ensure the health and wellness of your fellow residents by following the community guidelines we’ve put into place, as well as practicing social distancing and heeding the CDC’s guidance for preventing the spread of illness.

Once again, please reach out to me with any questions, comments or concerns. Thank you for your continued support and partnership – I am wishing health, safety and wellness to you and your families.
