leled in the world of shopping. The Rim, is a one of a kind, enveloping experience. “Rim Royalty,” makes everyone part of a royal family, and it comes complete with a golden crown brilliantly presented on a palate painted by The Texas Hill Country. I was thrilled to present The Rim to the world. But Dee Dee took my artistic impression of “Rim Royalty” to a totally different level- a royal level- a family level. She brought it right down to earth. She saw the crown as a symbol of royal family- where everyone would have a “royal welcome” and experience the best of the best. Dee Dee took my impression far beyond an artistic presentation, and made it real. Dee Dee made it family-made it fun- and made it absolutely spectacular! But where did all this drive and dedication come from? It is rare to find a person in the corporate world who brings heart to her job. Not surprisingly, this powerful, young woman, comes from a strong family background that has given her poise, strength , dedication, and a loving heart. All of these attributes are paramount in representing The Rim, and anyone who meets her can easily identify her dedication to the public and her clients. Dee Dee has been in retail management for years. She states; “ I was managing several facilities throughout the United States, when I was approached by a head hunter about a retail management position with a fortune 500 company. After meeting with formerly Trammel Crow Company, I was offered a postilion as a retail property manager. I started my retail career in 2001 and have been hooked ever since. I later went on to manage the Alamo Quarry Market for three years before I came to The Rim. I was hooked, and it was quite clear what my path was; I found a true love for helping others. I love doing what I do, and am grateful to have fallen into this fabulous career. I love working with the developer, the clients, and the shoppers. I receive a lot of e-mails and calls from The Hill Country saying how grateful they are that we are here! I truly want to welcome and familiarize everybody to this amazing center. With The Marriott just opening, we can be an Oasis for shopping and fun- without having the cost and hassle of getting on a plane – WE can be your vacation! Come for dinner and a movie – spend the night at The Marriott, get up in the morning then…SHOP! Take a break and have a great lunch at Maggiano's (you’ll think you're in Italy!) then work your lunch off at at Lifetime Fitness. Make sure you stop in their amazing spa for a massage and a facial then, as the sun is setting, relax by The Marriots' pool with a great glass of Cabernet, as you head off to The Palladium I-Max theater for a movie experience of a lifetime!
