To become a REALTORŪ was a natural progression for me, in that I have taken all my work experiences and customer service background and can now apply all that knowledge to real estate. From my first job at the NWS Yorktown Officers' Club, where I learned the attention to detail that was required to provide superior service, as well as my twelve years in the fast paced world of consulting, these experiences and values have prepared me to strategically place myself in a position to excel as a Realtor.


I've lived in Hampton Roads for over 30 years, 15 of which have been in Williamsburg. My family came to the area when my dad, a naval officer, was transferred to Yorktown. My siblings and I attended high school in Williamsburg. During this time we enjoyed all of the comfort and values that a home has to offer. We were fortunate to take advantage of and appreciate the quality of life of the Williamsburg area......from William & Mary football games to Grand Illumination, and the enjoyment of the history of Colonial Williamsburg.


After graduation, I worked full time while attending Old Dominion University as an undergrad and when pursuing a graduate degree from George Washington University. My education allowed me to craft my passion for working with people into a career in consulting that eventually took me to the Philadelphia area. After my daughter was born, I returned to Williamsburg where my parents now lived following my dad's retirement from the military. My daughter and son are now in high school and both truly love and appreciate what it means to call Williamsburg home. For me, it was the perfect place to raise a family and become involved in the community. Today, as a certified Master Gardener, I understand the value that a home can bring to one's life and volunteer in two historic teaching gardens and assist homeowners with landscaping needs.

As a REALTORŪ, you will find not only that I am easy to work with but that I am also devoted to my clients to ensure a successful real estate experience whether it be buying or selling properties. I truly enjoy meeting new people and am proud to be a part of "their next big adventure". Communication, premium service and attention to detail are essential to buying or selling a home and I pride myself on providing these as we navigate through the process together. I strongly believe that these qualities, combined with the knowledge and resources of being a member of the Coldwell Banker family, provide my clients with the information and education necessary for a successful - and enjoyable - real estate experience.
