Seema is an architect by training. Growing up, she knew she wanted to do something that married the two disciplines of art and science, and she felt architecture was the answer to that. With her master’s degree in construction project management, Washington REIT was the perfect fit for combining her passions and knowledge.
Seema’s main focus in her job is to manage construction projects throughout the retail and office portfolio. Seema’s days always start with a status check on her five to ten ongoing projects. She remedies any outstanding items from the previous day, then heads into progress meetings for her different construction projects.
“Any project that I'm doing, be it either for a new, incoming tenant or capital improvement, my goal is to leave the property in a better state than what it was when I started the project. That, for me, is ‘acting like an owner’.”
“One of the best things about working here is the energy everyone brings—it’s very infectious. Just walk in the door and you see that everyone’s on a mission to get things done. I find that energy resonating with other people too, and I really like it.”
