Her “All In” Philosophy Means No Small Plans as She Approaches BOMA Jacksonville 2020 Presidency, Baptist Health Team Goals, & Life!
Congratulations to Vickie Adams Hildestad, who is celebrating her fourth anniversary at the Baptist Health System, Inc. this October! She joined JMG Realty, Inc. about seven years ago and started in property management 10 years ago, on the residential side.
We asked her about her plans as BOMA Jacksonville’s incoming 2020 President her Baptist Health team’s involvement with sponsoring Christmas angels for The Salvation Army:
- How long have you been a member of BOMA Jacksonville, and what committees have you chaired?
I have been an active member of BOMA for 4 years. My passion is on the Membership side. We increased membership by 20% this past year and I am hoping we continue down that path. I want us to keep increasing the size of the Jacksonville local every year.
- As incoming BOMA Jacksonville President, what are your main goals for 2020?
My main goal is to feel comfortable speaking in front of everyone, HAHA! I want to increase membership and get education up and going in Jacksonville again. I also want us to have a bigger community presence and be more active in advocacy.
- How has your involvement in BOMA assisted your development as a property manager?
BOMA is a great association to learn from; the education opportunities are endless. Not to mention, I have met some of my very best friends through BOMA.
- Last year, a group of co-workers from your team came together to sponsor two Christmas Angels from The Salvation Army. How did that come about?
The team got super excited when they saw Keisha and I sponsoring one of the Angels and wanted to join in. So, this year we are up to 4 angels! We get really excited for the kids and wish we could see them open the presents. Working together on sponsoring The Salvation Angels has been a great team activity.
When Vickie isn’t busy at Baptist Health or BOMA Jacksonville, she is enjoying time with her new husband, Craig Hildestad. They recently celebrated their 1st anniversary by renting an Airbnb, enjoying some quality time together. One year ago, they were in Italy on their honeymoon, traveling and taking cooking classes. She really wants to go back! She loves to cook ,and she and her husband enjoy glamping. She is into dogs in a big way – both pet ownership and college football! She just loves her two puppies, Buddy and Willow. She is also a diehard Georgia Bulldog Fan.
