How important is earning your credentials to you personally?
Earning various credentials has been a very important piece of a larger goal-setting process throughout my career. It signifies a milestone that I’ve met the prerequisites, including the coursework, testing and experience and have a degree of understanding to earn it. I also want to send a signal to others that I am committed to this industry enough to seek out opportunities to learn.

How has receiving NAHMA’s certification benefited you professionally?
As an affordable housing advocate and executive, it’s important for me to stay connected to accurate and relevant resources of information for the industry. This includes receiving legislative updates and representation at the state and federal levels, learning how to maximize efficiencies in affordable operations and staying abreast of current trends in the market. Furthermore, NAHMA’s educational offerings are top-notch, with something for everyone connected to affordable housing.

What valuable information did you learn from obtaining your certification?
In order to obtain the NAHP-e, I had to meet the educational requirements. This included attending both tax credit and fair housing training modules, which are both dynamic and constantly evolving areas in housing. I learned about many new laws and policies enacted since just last year. At the same time, new trends are emerging that will undoubtedly impact the future in affordable housing. It’s critical to know these changes on a real-time basis, so we can plan and respond accordingly.
