Curious Traveler, Spiritual Hiker, Confident Kayaker, Energetic Gardener, Steadfast Grandparent

With nearly a decade of experience as a REALTOR in the Triangle, I love guiding folks to find the right home for their stage in life and their unique needs. Knowing that every situation is different, I get to know my clients, their specific situations, and what their goals are. To me, this is the best part of the job! I then use that knowledge to ensure the best experience possible as we work together to find a home that is the best fit for them. I especially love working with first-time homebuyers and helping them as they begin their homeownership journey.

I have been in customer/client-facing roles since I started working at 15. That experience includes a 28-year career in finance with a Fortune 500 company before I became a REALTOR. I believe that my success in all of this stems from the fact that I am a good listener, strong communicator, and that I can empathize with almost anyone.

As the mother of two grown children and grandmother to three beautiful grandchildren, I know that family, home, and connection to others are everything. I also know that the Triangle offers the diversity, food, activities, and cultural opportunities to nurture these connections. Whether you’re ready to put down new roots or move from one stage of life to another, I look forward to putting all of this knowledge and experience to work for you!
