Bio

What you should know about me...

I'm lucky.  I've lived in Washington my whole life, growing up in the farmland of the Columbia Basin, where my family still lives.  I moved to Spokane to attend college at Eastern Washington University, which is where my husband and I bought our first home.  After about a year of DIY projects, my husband joined the US Army, and we were stationed at Fort Lewis.  The lush, green landscapes were a stark change from the rugged, rocky desert of Eastern Washington.  I was in love immediately.

And Olympia, with a bit of the bustle of a big city but the comfortable feeling of a small town, immediately felt like home.  And Thurston County, with its access to a diverse range of activities and cities, makes it a magnet for any personality type!

I lived in Olympia, working in a Human Resources office for 7 years, before I decided to pursue a career in real estate.  I've always been interested in design and architecture and love seeing how people live in their homes.  As a real estate agent, I get to meet new people every day, get to know them and learn and what is important to them.

But buying a home can be very complex -- for most of us, it's the largest purchase of our lives.  My background in Human Resources, where I specialized in training, prepared me for helping my clients understand the process and give them the confidence they need to make the important decisions that come along with a purchase of this size.

My partnership with Coldwell Banker Evergreen Olympic Realty was a natural choice -- the team had so many values I could relate to -- a high level of professionalism, superior industry knowledge, and a focus on service, lasting relationships, and giving back to the community.

I would love to put my skills and partnerships to work in helping you navigate your next real estate transaction.
