How did you end up in DC? 

I am actually a DC native, born and raised. I branched out to Maryland and Virginia for experience but decided to come back home to my roots.

What made you want to come work at The Crest? 

The Crest offered me a special opportunity to be a part of a new property in an area where there is nothing like it around. It gave me an opportunity to be part of a team of pioneers for the Skyland/Hillcrest neighborhood.

When you’re not working at The Crest, where can we find you?

Outside of work I can be found at the nearest playground or splash park with my 1-year-old son. He is a ball of energy and loves the outdoors.

What are you Netflix-binging on right now? 

The new season of Ozark. This show had me hooked from start to finish.

When you want to unwind at the end of the day, where do you go? 

Either for happy hour with friends, or the best place on earth, my bed!

How would you work on your wellness/fitness at The Crest? 

When I work on my fitness, I find strength training the most effective for me.

What do you think is the best part of being a resident at The Crest? 

The Crest offers total convenience of having so many retail options so close to home. What could be better than being able to run all of your errands without ever having to leave your block?

Where is your favorite spot to grab lunch in the neighborhood? 

&Pizza just opened just steps away from The Crest and the pizza is great!

Be sure to say hello to Portia and the other Crest team members when you see them around the community!
