Originally from Scottsdale, Arizona, I have a Bachelor’s Degree in both Communication and Political Science from the University of Arizona. After graduating I quickly moved to Southern California following my love for the ocean and chasing corporate America. After a few years of enjoying the beach I earned an MBA from San Diego State (where I met my husband who joined the Air Force).
While stationed in Washington, South Dakota and Texas, I spent several years in marketing and advertising, taught group fitness and continue to stay active. I play tennis, ran a few half marathons, pushed through a few triathlons and still enjoy the occasional adventure race. We expanded our family to include 3 kids, a dog, and a cat. After moving around the country during our time in the Air Force we feel very fortunate to have landed in paradise at Eglin Air Force Base.
As a military spouse, I experienced my share of moves over the last 20 years. When friends moved I found myself helping them locate their next house and researching neighborhoods and homes with them. I really enjoyed assisting them and know I made a positive impact in their experience. One day it just clicked and it made sense to combine my passion for helping people like you find real estate and use my advanced marketing degree beyond just critiquing pictures online with them.
I place a high value on continuing education. We can never stop learning in this industry (and in life). Beyond my Business and Marketing MBA, I achieved the prestigious and difficult Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation. Only 3% of real estate professionals have attained this highly coveted designation. I also have a Military Relocation Professional designation (MRP), certifications as a Florida Military Specialist (FMS), and e-PRO. In 2016, I participated in the local MLS Leadership Development Program, with a select few of other leaders in the industry to effectively give back to the local and Realtor community. I’m actively involved on two board committees as well as our local Realtor Safety Task Force.
My three children are all actively involved at Niceville High School. Our family loves to spend time fishing and boating which makes the Emerald Coast and Niceville an ideal location for us. We love to enjoy the Gulf of Mexico, Destin’s beaches and 30A when we aren’t traveling to soccer tournaments, cheer competitions or cross country meets.
Here along the Emerald Coast we have great communities and homes in Niceville, Ft. Walton Beach, Navarre, Destin, Crestview, Shalimar, Valparaiso, etc. There’s so much more to finding or selling the perfect home than just what you see online! I promise that I never forget that you have a choice of Realtors and put YOUR needs first. Call or e-mail me now so I can help you find your ideal home near Hurlburt Field, Eglin AFB, or Duke Field!
