I grew up in a town of 600 people in northern Michigan. It’s the same town my parents and grandparents were raised in, so it’s safe to say I find comfort in smaller, more intimate settings.

By the time I was 19, I was done with the cold weather. I loved to ski, but skiing from November through April was beginning to get old, so I packed up and moved to Orlando, where I graduated from the University of Central Florida.

Financially independent since my teenage years, I not only have held a variety of odd jobs in high school and college but on top of my higher education degree, I earned certifications/licenses in diverse areas, including real estate, allowing me the ability to try new things until I found my path.

After a brief stint in Tallahassee, I moved to Atlanta in 2002, working for a home construction company and then for a couple of real estate firms, where I was averaging nearly 40 transactions a year. Through that job, I met Darcy [Watts] and joined the Keller Williams team in 2012.

Being a seasoned professional in real estate, with more than 20 years of experience, I find it hugely beneficial to be part of this team. I’m not out there on my own…I’ve got comradery, top agents to bounce ideas off of, specialized team members that are experts in their niche, a group of people working towards the same goal, and a culture where the team cares about each other’s successes.

I pride myself on building relationships and taking care of my clients, so that they continue to see me as their long-term real estate partner and friend.

When I’m not working, I’m still looking at houses. I’m fascinated by them and the way people live. I spend my spare time browsing real estate in other countries, enjoying my log cabin in the North Georgia mountains, cultivating beehives and harvesting honey, and traveling around the country and overseas with my husband.

I’m thrilled to bring my experience and the team that’s behind me to my clients. Being from a place that I’d routinely get snowed in, sometimes for weeks at a time, having a home that fits me is extremely important, and I find pleasure in bringing that same sense of security to my clients.
