Development Coordinator

Nick joined SHS in January 2020. In his role as Development Coordinator, Nick assists the partners with development projects, including budgeting, scheduling, securing financing and funding, obtaining planning approvals, coordinating the work of other professionals, and reporting to various entities. He is focused on realizing project completion through strong relationship building with clients and stakeholders.

He is passionate about housing, and is excited to work on any project that improves affordability in the housing continuum.
