I was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska and attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, majoring in architecture and business. During my senior year at school in 1993, I came to Orlando to participate in the Walt Disney World College Program. At Disney, I worked as an entertainer at The Great Movie Ride at Disney MGM Studios and a Guest Relations VIP Tour Guide at EPCOT. Following Disney, I had already fallen in love with Orlando and transferred to The University of Central Florida where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, with honors, in 1997. After graduation, I tried on many different career hats including being a crisis counselor and a suicide hotline worker, flight attendant, worked on the opening crew of celebrity chef Emeril’s new restaurant, and was a series 7 stock broker for Morgan Stanley Dean Witter. In 2003, I decided to pair my love of both real estate and working with people and received my real estate agent’s license and quickly realized I had found the career that I love! I apply the knowledge from my education and earlier experiences and I pride myself on having a strong work ethic, excellent customer service skills, great market knowledge, and strong negotiating and problem solving skills. I have worked in many facets of residential real estate including residential sales, property management, leasing, investment properties, relocations, receivership properties, bank owned properties, and short sales. I have been a top producer from 2006 thru 2016 and have sold over $18 Million in residential property and have leased and managed over 300 properties in my career. I work all over the greater Metro Orlando area from Sanford to Poinciana and specialize in Downtown Orlando, Winter Park, Conway, and Waterford Lakes. My passion for architecture, construction, people, problem solving, and negotiating make real estate a dream job for me! I especially enjoy working with first time buyers and helping them make the dream of home ownership a reality!
I live near downtown Orlando with my long-time partner, Mike, and our cat, Tuxie. My interests include architecture, history, and aviation and I have fallen in love with the Florida lifestyle and everything it has to offer, especially theme parks, the beaches, and cruises!
