What do you love most about your role?
Menlo Park Labs is home to some of the most innovative life science companies in the world. It is an energetic and spirited commercial real estate community designed specifically with the requirements of research and development firms in mind.
A variety of life science and biotech firms make Menlo Park Labs their home; creating a dynamic, growth-oriented environment.
The best part of my job is interacting with these early stage companies and learning about their science. As a property manager, these startup companies rely on me to create an environment that supports their growth and success.
What technology do you rely on most in your day to day work?
We started using Building Engines in 2016. Prior to that, our tenants contacted our team using a service team email address; we tracked our preventative maintenance using an outlook calendar. Building Engines has streamlined our business and allowed us to better track and manage our tenant service requests. I especially like the ability to easily view the history of a piece of equipment (i.e. a problematic HVAC unit) so that I can make an informed decision on next steps (repair or replace).
