Baltimore is flourishing in certain neighborhoods, and not in others. As a former resident of inner city Baltimore, I know that it is time for a real solution to low-income and affordable housing. I want to be a part of that solution, the education that I’m getting at UB has put me in the right direction and I’m excited about my future. - Quiana Gough.
Quiana Gough, B.S. '10 began her college career at
University in 2001 as a nursing major. Gough was introduced to the
field of abstracting while working as a title searcher for DKJ Inc, an
abstracting firm in Baltimore. Abstracting stimulated Quiana, challenged
her and taught her something new everyday, for these reasons, Gough
chartered a new course in business and ceased her nursing aspirations.
The real estate market was booming when she first started working and the small abstracting company—she was overloaded with work. In the fall of 2007, Gough took advantage of a work load decrease and re-initiated her collegiate education at UB as a Real Estate and Economic Development major.
She was one of the first recipient’s of the Commercial Real Estate Women Network (CREW) Scholarship receiving the award for the 2008 – 2009 school year. Gough is professionally interested in improving the current real estate market for low income and middle class families.
