“I’m grateful that Essex truly is dedicated to its associates’ growth. I’ve worked for many companies that claim that they are invested in growing their associates, but I never actually experienced it until I came to Essex. Throughout my three years with the company, I have quickly been promoted from leasing specialist to assistant manager to community manager and now to my current role as a community relations manager. I look forward to continuing my career journey with Essex and the amazing team members I get to work with!”
