The San Diego Building Owners and Managers Association announced Friday that Liz Howeth of Kilroy Realty Corporation and Gabriela Davis of Brandywine Realty Trust are recipients of 2012 Jack Moshgat Scholarships.
Each year, two Jack Moshgat Scholarships are awarded to deserving individuals in honor of Moshgat, a former BOMA San Diego president. Applicants are asked to complete an application and submit an essay addressing their desire for the scholarship award. Scholarships are awarded based on the strength and completeness of the essays, financial need and the individual’s involvement in BOMA. The winners can use the scholarship funds to pursue an RPA or FMA designation through the BOMI Institute or to pursue a certification in the Foundations of Real Estate Managements program.
“Commercial real estate professionals look to BOMA as a leading source for industry education, said BOMA San Diego President Mike Hansen of CBRE. “BOMA San Diego offers a variety of education programs to fit the needs of owners, managers and those just starting out in the industry. We are proud to bestow these scholarships on two impressive and very deserving professionals.”
With her original sights set on becoming an elementary school teacher, Liz Howeth moved to San Diego and instead met her ideal career match in property management. She got her start at Irvine Company Office Properties where she worked for five and a half years, and then joined the Kilroy Realty team where she works today. With seven years of real world experience under her belt, Howeth now plans to further her career through the continuing education programs offered by BOMA San Diego.
Immediately following college graduation, Gabriela Davis found herself working in the commercial real estate industry as a temporary administrative assistant at Brandywine Realty Trust. During the last five years, she has worked her way up the ladder to her current position as assistant property manager with the company. Last year, she received her California Real Estate Salespersons License and now plans to pursue an RPA and FMA designation through BOMA San Diego and the BOMI Institute.
