CREW Network Foundation Scholarship: Calgary Recipients
Tuesday, Oct 8, 2019
Congratulations to Calgary recipients of the Crew Network Foundation Scholarship. We are so proud!
The CREW Network Foundation scholarship program supports future female leaders as they pursue university-level education that will lead to careers in commercial real estate. Two of these scholarships were awarded to Calgary CREW members, Jessica Murphy and Zoe Lo.
Following a career as a transportation and construction engineer in Calgary, Jessica is pursuing her MBA at UCLA Anderson with a specialization in real estate to achieve her goal of becoming a commercial real estate developer. At Anderson, she attained a position on the Dean’s Honor List of Students with a GPA of 3.9 and holds an executive position on the Anderson Real Estate Association board as the Vice President Built Environment. She is passionate about real estate development, urban planning, real estate technology, and the impact of transportation innovations on the urban scape. Her personal interests also include design, public art, and painting. Jessica feels that development is a multi-disciplinary area of commercial real estate that will allow her to flex both her creative and analytical muscles. She loves working with large project teams and looks forward to collaborating with a variety of project stakeholders – from tradesmen to architects. Jessica aspires to be an executive in an entrepreneurial firm that pushes the envelope on design and delivers landmark projects in the communities they are built. Most recently, Jessica worked for Cypress Equity Investments, a multi-family developer based in Los Angeles.
Zoe is a fourth-year commerce student majoring in Business Economics and Law with a minor in Finance at the Alberta School of Business and pursuing a Certificate in Real Estate. Zoe’s interest in the real estate industry was garnered through the University of Alberta Real Estate Club, where she has held an executive position for over three years. In this role, she has had the opportunity to network with industry professionals and work closely with the real estate program at the University of Alberta. Zoe is actively involved in generating interest in the real estate industry within the student body and bridging the gap between industry professionals and students. Zoe is currently creating study material for the Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA)
licensing examination with professor David Dale-Johnson.
Her enthusiasm for valuations was fostered when she interned at Colliers International during the school year. She intends to work toward an Accredited Appraiser Canadian Institute (AACI) designation, as she hopes to pursue a career in valuations.
