I am a licensed full-time REALTOR®, with a BA degree from Michigan State University. Prior to getting into real estate sales; I worked in the hospitality and golf industry for over 15 years. I held operational and management responsibilities as a golf professional for both public and private golf clubs in Michigan and Southern California. Although I was raised in Michigan and resided in California for several years, I have lived in various neighborhoods in Phoenix and am familiar with the arts, restaurants, and the night life that greater Phoenix has to offer. I am dedicated to exceptional client experience.
I was born and raised in a very small, close-knit community in North Idaho. I understand the value of community and neighbors. After high school, I attended Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, Idaho and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. I was very involved in numerous student organizations and outreach programs, which gave me a chance to work closely with others and listen to their input. After college, I worked with the US Forest Service as a wild land firefighter and with an elite group of helicopter crew members providing support and communication. It was the summer of 2005 when I met a helicopter pilot (my husband) and the adventures began. We have been involved in the aviation business for many years and traveled the world including providing support to our military for five years in Afghanistan. In 2011 we were determined to find the perfect community to build a life in Arizona. After weeks of searching in the Phoenix metro area, we not only found the amazing community of Verrado, but also the perfect place to “land.” My husband and I recently decided to make career changes and help others find their dream home in the community we love. We enthusiastically joined the Verrado Realty Team in 2015. I am passionate about Verrado and want to help you find your home in this unique and beautiful community. I look forward to meeting you and helping you with all your real estate dreams.
Being fortunate enough to grow up in a small and nurturing community in Montana, I was taught and understood the meaning of life’s simple ethic; treat people how you want to be treated. Not only do I value this ethic in my personal life, but I carry this ideal through my professional life as well.
After graduating high school, I entered a helicopter pilot training course in Oregon and received my helicopter pilot’s license. As a professional helicopter pilot, I have had the opportunity to fly and work for a number of prestigious companies in many areas of the world including Afghanistan, Canada, and most every state in the US.
In 2007, I worked on Hurricane Katrina recovery and rescues for several months, but in 2005, on a wild land fire assistance mission with the US Forest Service, I met someone very special – my future wife and life companion. Since then, we have spent 10 years traveling, working, and making a life together. Just recently, we spent 5 years together working in Afghanistan for a helicopter logistics contract.
In 2011, my wife and I built our new home in what we believe is the best community in Arizona – Verrado! After meeting and working with many amazing people in the Verrado community, we decided to make a career change and become part of the Verrado Realty Team. As a licensed realtor, I look forward to assisting you in becoming residents of this beautiful and vibrant community.
Shortly after my brother and I were born in Southern California, our parents relocated their respective companies just outside of Portland, Oregon. It was there, with some very closely knit families, that I began to appreciate the true meaning of “community”.
In 2001, my father merged his company with a prominent Scottsdale based community developer, and we moved to Arizona. Throughout my high school years, I excelled in both academics and sports. Leadership skills were demonstrated as the Captain of my Lacrosse team. After graduation, I enrolled in the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University, where I graduated with a Bachelors’ Degree in Marketing Communication.
Arizona has been my home for nearly 15 years. Being raised in a real estate involved family; I was exposed to the industry at a young age. I have been privileged to have worked as a sales assistant intern for brokerages in Scottsdale and Flagstaff. I am fortunate to have learned from the best and continue that pattern today as a Licensed Sales Associate at Verrado Realty. Real Estate is my passion and family legacy. Being a member of the Verrado Realty Team is the realization of a lifelong dream. Verrado reminds me of the communities I’ve always called home and I look forward to using my expertise to help others find their home here in Arizona.
