Miss Townsend started in the Real Estate industry as a seasonal office gofer for her father's development firm in 2002, when she was just 14 years old. She went on to earn a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Industrial Engineering with a concentration in Engineering Management from the University of Miami and a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Creative Writing from Full Sail University before she joined the firm full-time as a project analyst in 2015. She quickly took over managing the day-to-day office activities in addition to her various research projects. Recognizing the need to pull her father's firm into the 21st century, she also spearheaded a company-wide transition to a uniform I.T. infrastructure, as well as the implementation of a payroll and HR platform.
As heiress apparent, the future of the company and industry are always key motivators for Miss Townsend's actions. She continues to push her father's firm to adopt new technologies, models, and ideas. While his firm has been successful in the traditional real estate market, Miss Townsend is driven to find a new approach to combat the real estate industry's general inability to keep up with the rapidly changing world around it.
