Kenicia grew up in small yet entrepreneurial Heidelberg, Germany, where she was impressed by how they decided to build the town and compared it to the United States. This intrigued her to study real estate development at Georgetown University. Kenicia combined her studies with her dedication to good customer service—and found herself at Washington REIT.
Kenicia usually gets into work around 8:30 AM to start checking emails. She then walks to her building to make sure everything is up to standard before checking in with the engineers, learning what their day entails to address any pressing issues. Then Kenicia follows up on emails with the main goal of increasing shareholder value.
“What attracted me to Washington REIT is the fact that we have an entrepreneurial spirit about our culture. When I first went through the interview process, the Asset Management Team asked how I could contribute to the company. It made me feel like my thoughts, my innovation, and my abilities matter to the company.”
