There is a bumper sticker I’ve seen around which reads, “I wasn’t born in Texas, but I got here as quick as I could!”  Well, I took a somewhat circuitous route, starting in southern California, then on to Washington state, and finally to Maui, Hawaii before landing here in Austin, Texas in 1998…but I finally got here!

After spending 10+ years in Austin’s booming tech industry and a 3-year gig as an expat living in Shanghai, China while my husband was on assignment there, I decided to pursue a career in real estate. With an affinity for meeting new people, a love of the Austin area, and a passion for all things related to real estate – architecture, interior design, gardening, and landscape design, music (I’m counting singing in the shower … which is in my home … and therefore real estate) – I wanted a career where I can help put people into their dream homes, and maybe even get them singing in the shower!

I'm delighted to be part of the JB Goodwin Realtors team, where I'm surrounded by dedicated and caring real estate professionals.  I enjoy working with my clients to meet all their real estate needs: selling, purchasing, or leasing -- be it for a starter home, forever home, vacation, or investment property.

Outside of real estate I love spending time with my family, which includes my husband and two grown sons, lots of travel, good food, and a passion for cooking that is sadly not reflected in my culinary skill level. I’m an animal lover, an avid reader, and bit of a gardening nut. I also run a little blog (Adventures in Austin Real Estate) where I like to drop morsels of wit and wisdom along with info on real estate trends, market stats, and other fun stuff!
