Marcy Peacock, CMCA
With a background in office management and real estate I came to Associa Community Group in September 2011. Being a portfolio manager of eight communities and a team leader of three Junior Managers has given me the opportunity to experience HOA management and pass my experience on to my team members. I have been a member of CAI for five years. Being part of the CAI Board has given many opportunities to meet other Managers, Business owners and contractors who work together to make the HOA business a success. I am an outdoor enthusiast and enjoy canoeing the James River, camping, gardening and cooking. Another passion is the Craft Beer scene. I travel the East coast for breweries and beer fests looking to enjoy a hearty stout or intense IPA. I am a proud mom of three sons ages 25, 23 and 16 all who enjoy the great outdoors.
