Favorite thing about working at DAA?

In my job, every day is different.  I love the autonomy I can enjoy and the work-life balance that has always been important to the firm.


In your experience here, is there a project that really stands out?

I spent 7 years pursuing the Wildwood Commerce Park in Carroll County – and then they issued the RFP with a due date while I was out of the country on vacation!  But the DAA team made it happen, and I returned to a great interview and we won! That project has brought in a large revenue stream for all teams – and has turned into a “crown jewel” in economic development sites in Virginia.


Favorite sports team?

Dallas Cowboys!
