    Her story

    Starting in the real estate industry as a housing inspector, Tasha found success because of her passion for working with people and making everyone around her feel comfortable. She’s always enjoyed helping others so when she was offered a position as an assistant manager at a senior apartment complex, she jumped at the opportunity, knowing she could have an even deeper impact.  Soon after she started, she was introduced to IREM and obtained her ARM.  In 2019, Tasha was inspired to start her CPM® journey and looked to the Foundation for financial assistance along the way to help her meet her goals. Since that time, Tasha has continued taking courses and has served on several IREM committees both within the Chicago Chapter as well as on a national level, including being appointed to the 2022 DEI Advisory Board. Not only is Tasha pursuing her professional goals by working toward her CPM certification, but she’s making the world a better place by volunteering and giving back to those in her community and in the industry.


    "Volunteering has given me great pleasure knowing I’m a part of a collective whole, making an impact, and that I am essential in moving the mission of IREM & the Foundation forward."

    Our impact:

    To support Tasha as she continued to work toward her CPM, the Foundation has been honored to award her two scholarships throughout her education journey, a Donald M. Furbush, CPM® Scholarship and one of the very first Robert K. and Gladys M. Beal Legacy Scholarships, launched in 2021. The Beal Legacy Scholarship is awarded to IREM members who demonstrate both merit and service by volunteering with their local chapter. We’re proud to be part of Tasha’s professional journey and she continues to make a difference in the community and real estate management industry.
