Director of Property Management
Darlene brings nearly 25 years of experience in the affordable housing industry and her last 10 years has been focused on supportive housing properties. She oversees day-to-day operations, provides guidance for new properties as they come online, and works closely with the Regional Managers to ensure on-site staff are adequately trained to their unique properties. Darlene is responsible for adequately designing and maintaining budgets for each property. Darlene’s philosophy is to hire good people who understand the population they are serving: you can teach people compliance, you can’t teach them compassion.
Tonya began her career in property management in 2011 for two Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) properties while serving in the US Army Reserve (2005-2018) starting as a Chemical Specialist and ending as a Drill Instructor, wearing many hats over her years of service.

Having moved back to Montana in 2015, Jessica accepted the role of assistant property manager where she quickly took on her own properties managing Project Based Section 8 (PBS8), Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) and HOME units. Jessica has also managed conventional housing with 400+ units. With the passion of providing support, she took on the role of area manager. Missing affordable housing, she made the choice to come back recently (working for BlueLine) where she feels more at home. When Jessica is not working, she is out traveling and making new adventures with her family. Her motto is: life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we respond react to it, and if we fail, we fail forward.
