Born into a military family, I had the privilege of living all over the world. This experience taught me at an early age to adapt quickly, learn eagerly, follow great leaders, and aspire for greatness. Being the daughter of an immigrant father who turned CSM in the United States Army, I learned how only hard work and determination can lead to success. I adopted that mindset which spilled into my early adulthood, as I became a professional cheerleader for the Atlanta Falcons at age 18.
Professionally, I was the youngest general manager for LA Fitness. There, is where I learned the art of closing every deal, overcoming objections, and running a sales force. Sales became a strong passion of mine. After my career in corporate America, working 14 hour days, 6 days a week, I decided to take the future into my own hands. I became a licensed real estate agent in Florida, in all hopes to own a real estate company in the future. Determined to own my own agency, I worked hard and I was quickly recognized as a top producing agent within my first 8 months of real estate. I was quickly promoted to the company's sales trainer, where I learned how to recruit, run an office, and create a producing sales team. Keeping my goals on track, I opened a real estate company at the age of 27. For 16 years I ran an agency built on integrity, hard work, professionalism, and dedication to success.
How did I end up in Texas? My husband and I visited Austin and fell in love. Austin is our new home and as the saying goes " We got here as fast as we could". Since our move to Texas, I have been blessed to have the opportunity at JB Goodwin as the new Director of Growth and Performance. I look forward to working with all of our agents and helping them with their visions and goals through successful coaching. JB Goodwin's philosophy of "Help People" is in line with mine. As a foster mom, special needs, and animal advocate, I believe if we do not help others, why are we here?
It's not all work for me though, I compete in Obstacle Course Racing. When you do not see me hard at work in the office, you will see me jumping 8 ft walls and overcoming obstacles on muddy terrain courses on the weekends.
