My Background:

I’ve always been a home, real estate & architecture enthusiast.  Originally from the Chicagoland area, I moved to Madison almost a decade ago from St. Louis. My family and I have enjoyed immersing ourselves in this amazing community and exploring the plethora of cultural, educational, athletic and family-friendly activities Dane County has to offer.

I will forever remember the stress of moving.  It was important for me to find the ideal HOME and neighborhood fit.  I wanted my realtor to listen and understand what I wanted and needed for my family. And most of all, I wanted my realtor to be thorough, honest and forthcoming about our options. It was essential I trust them to follow through with the details so that I could focus on my family and never-ending To-Do list during that transition.

I am committed to being that realtor.

I know everyone’s search is unique. Everyone’s reasons for listing are different.  Let me hear from you, develop the right strategy for your situation, and take care of the business end of this very personal transaction. 


 My Profession:

Prior to becoming a realtor I worked for a highly competitive national university as a recruiter and counseled prospective families on admission and financial aid opportunities.  During that time I also managed the university’s visitor center and coordinated an extensive number of logistically intensive recruitment events.  I have always prided myself in marketing and promoting the organization or individual I’m representing in a friendly and approachable, yet professional manner. 

Becoming a realtor has been the perfect blend of my talents and interests.  I excel at conveying a vision and value to stakeholders, love to coordinate details and connect people to resources.
