BOMA San Diego: What was your first role and what ultimately got you interested in this field?
Myra: My first role in Property Management was as an Administrative Assistant. The everyday challenges, the unknown, and the creative ways to resolve issues quickly and productively caught my attention (Property Management is never dull or easy)! I enjoy tenant & vendor relations, operations, and the opportunity to make a change, to be exciting.  

BOMA San Diego: What are your top three goals for joining BOMA San Diego?

BOMA San Diego: What is a book you read that you would recommend?
