Who are you?

Amanda Strom

How long have you been at Florian Properties?

One and a half years

What’s your title?

Administrative assistant and Collegiate marketing

What are your responsibilities?

My main task is marketing for 30 off campus houses close to both Quinnipiac University and CCSU. I also help manage the day to day needs of out current tenants. My position is one of wearing many hats.

The second half of my job is assisting the company with the commercial and residential properties in tasks like marketing, showing available spaces, maintenance request and following up with administrative tasks.

What do you love about your job?

I love that each and everyday is always something different. I am always learning new things as they come up. Also, the staff here is amazing. We are a team and I truly love working with them. I would have to say my favorite part is the amount of interaction I get with people, especially with the collegiate tenants. In a lot of cases, this is the first time they will be signing a lease which is exciting and nerve-racking all at the same time therefore I always try to make it a stress free process.

What do you do for fun outside of work?

My friends and family are very important to me. I have made friends in almost every state thanks to my time in College and FEMA Corps. I take every opportunity I have to stay in contact with them and visit whenever I get the chance to. Traveling is the best, especially road trips!

Having spent time with FEMA Corps doing community service assisting in natural disaster relief and seeing how both rewarding and humbling the experience was. I realized my passion is to help people and I will be attending CCSU to earn a teaching certificate in Art Education.
