I was raised in a military family on various bases in America and Germany before moving to Austin to attend UT and earn my B.A. degree, which means I moved a lot (for example, I attended three different high schools!). I taught German and English to high school and college students before completing a Master’s in Counseling and Guidance, and then worked as the Director of a holistic wellness center for people with HIV/AIDS. What an amazing experience!

Following that, I landed my first corporate gig and earned certification as a Senior Professional in Human Resources, working in various industries including environmental engineering, pension administration, real estate investment, high-tech, agriculture, and the law. I also worked privately with clients as a Wellness Facilitator and have taken all of that customer service-related experience into real estate (following in the footsteps of other family members). As a long-time Austin resident, I get very excited showing off our city to recent arrivals and helping longer-term residents see it in a new light as they change homes or explore investment property. 

When I'm not working, I'm enjoying the great outdoors right here in our fair city or in the outlying areas. Walking, cycling and hiking are my favorite activities but if I'm feeling particularly adventurous, I'll head to the beach or mountains. You also might find me at the bowling alley (what me, competitive?)!

Central Texas is a great location! Let me know how I can help you make this your home, sweet home! I offer a different approach to real estate, regardless of what side of the transaction you're on: selling...with soul.
