Born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa, I was influenced by the real estate world most of my life. My father was a successful contractor and builder which planted seeds, early on, for this to become the same avenue I would eventually travel. Yet, by first earning a Bachelor of Science in Elementary, Special Education with a Minor in Counseling and Educational Psychology at New Mexico State University, I learned a particular skill set that has enabled me to develop and employ a unique insight to a person’s needs. After living in the Southwest for over 10 years, it was time for a change—the choice was Virginia; making the beautiful Shenandoah Valley home with my husband, two daughters, two cats, and a dog that I refer to as “the son I never had”. We live on a small farmstead that is currently comprised of three cows, six goldfish, and a myriad of chickens. In my free time I love to garden, learn new skills, and spend time with my family and friends.

Being a Realtor®, however, has created a career that allows me to share my passion for relationships, my love for homes and decorating, and my desire to serve my community. I hope to provide a pleasant experience that will overshadow any less-than-stellar real estate transaction a person may have had previously and provide a “win-win” transaction; one in which the buyer and seller alike “win”.
