Director of Property Management Operations
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. Through various experiences in affordable and supportive housing, she’s found her preference and passion with PSH and creative thinking - focusing on the success rates of the tenants she works with. Tonya is solution-driven rather than problem-focused and believes anything is possible when you have the right team.
