Kristin serves on the NAHB Housing Credit Certified Professional Board of Governors. She is a credit compliance professional, national compliance professional and national affordable housing professional executive – and, of course, an NAHB Housing Credit Certified Professional (HCCP) designee.
“HCCP is a premier, specialized designation that is nationally recognized by various groups within the industry,” Kristin says.
“As a syndication firm, WNC provides asset management services for the syndicated portfolio and we may be unique in requiring all asset managers to be HCCP designation holders. The designation itself signifies the level of understanding of the complexity of the LIHTC program and a level of dedication towards achieving and maintaining excellence.”
NAHB would like our members to know more about these successful designees – and perhaps find yet another reason to explore the NAHB Designations program.
What’s a favorite book you’ve read recently? 1st to Die by James Patterson, and currently loving The Lake House by Kate Morton. Growing up, I’ve always been fascinated by stories of Sherlock Holmes and books written by Agatha Christie.
When it comes to success, do you have any particular words or a quote that you try to live by? To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to leave the world a better place, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived, this is to have succeeded. –Ralph Waldo Emerson
Give me three words to describe the industry in 2017. Challenge. Flexibility. Resilience.
What industry trends are you most excited about? The rise of the coalition groups devoted to the continued success of the Low Income Housing Tax Credit program.
What is one industry issue that we really need to find the solution for? The need for updated recommended best practices developed by consortium of state housing credit agencies with industry participants. We need to reach consistency while maintaining program excellence.
Thank you, Kristin. And thank you to all of our other successful designation holders.
