My Story

Here's a little more about me!!
God was showing off when he sent me my husband. I mean, I got to marry my high school sweetheart?! This year we will be celebrating our 23rd wedding anniversary! He truly puts the color in my world! We still believe in date nights and love creating new memories through travel, eating, cooking, hiking, gardening, reading new books together, and even pretending to be good golfers! With Christ as the center of our home, we have built a beautiful little family along with our two amazing children and one darling little malti-poo. 
Our firstborn son, Nico, is currently pursuing his dreams, attending college at West Point in New York. Our lovely daughter, Noeli, is a sophomore in high school, and she's an excellent student-athlete that excels at everything she sets her mind to. And our little dog Gatsby keeps us on our toes! 

I firmly believe in creating experiences and memories that will last a lifetime! I'm all about work-life balance too. When I'm not helping buyers and sellers, I dedicate my time to my family and close friends. 


Some of the opportunities that I bring to the table as your agent include: 

-Integrity: I will answer your real estate questions with full transparency and honesty! 

-Access: I can access information on any property you're curious about whenever you need it.

-Accountability: I have a financial and social application to work hard for you. As with all of my clients, I plan to earn your business!

  1. I'm a freelance photographer
