Asset Living is pleased to announce that Property Manager Samantha Harvey is one of fifteen candidates selected nationally by the National Apartment Association to be a member of their Diversity Leadership Program for 2021.
The highly selective Diversity Leadership Program (DLP) is a year-long program that is designed to identify, mentor, and engage individuals in the industry from underrepresented minority groups. This program allows members to develop their skills and knowledge and grow as leaders in the rental housing industry.
She has been with Asset Living in her current role for three years, initially beginning her career path as a leasing consultant almost 20 years ago. “I love Asset Living, I have never worked for a company that is so structured the way that this company is, and I wouldn’t be anywhere else,” she said.
Samantha also credits much of her success in the industry to her mentor, Asset Living Regional Vice President, Lee Rogers. “Lee is an amazing person, and I really don’t think I would be where I am today without her. I am so grateful for all the opportunities given to me by Asset Living. They have allowed me to become involved with local industry affiliates as well as the FAA (Florida Apartment Association) and NAA (National Apartment Association).”
She currently serves on four different committees for the First Coast Apartment Association, including the Education Committee, the Legislative Committee, The Circle of Excellence Committee, as well as the Trade Show Committee. She has also been nominated for the Leadership Lyceum Program, which she started this year, as well as was the recipient of the Nan Cavarretta Memorial Scholarship that would pay for this program in full.
She is excited about the opportunity the DLP Program will provide her and is looking forward to getting started: “With me being able to participate in this program, I will learn how to teach people about the importance of diversity, and that we are all equals, regardless of color or nationality.”
