BACKGROUND After growing up in San Francisco then Seattle, I lived in several places across the country, including Florida, back to Seattle, two stops in New Jersey then Dallas and Birmingham, AL. With 13 years in this city, I now call Houston home for good! My educational background brings with it Canadian boarding school for high school and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish language and literature from Whitman College. My professional background is in personal insurance where I worked for Chubb Insurance Company on the West Coast and East coast. I have always had an interest in Real Estate, stemming from family involvement and ownership in a real estate company since childhood.
FAMILY, FUN AND GIVING BACK I have three grown children and two dogs! I am lucky enough to have one son who lives in Houston who is a Longhorn Lawyer, an Ole Miss rebel who works in oil and gas in Austin and a daughter who is finishing up college studying history and political science in Colorado. My hobbies are anything that involves the outdoors, and being in or around the water and in the mountains is my idea of a perfect vacation. I try to stay fit and set a new athletic goal each year. So far a triathlon has been my most intense but who knows what the future may hold!
In October of 2019 I will be a 20 year cancer survivor, and hold this cause very near to my heart. My Homes Bring Hope program donates a portion of each sale compensation to a local non profit organization which aids either health, education, children or animals. There are several nonprofit organizations with whom I partner, that receive a portion of my compensation, simply because a client mentions their name, or affiliation with the organization. I love to give to my favorite charities, and I’d love to give to yours too! When we are getting acquainted, please let me know what is important to you! If my clients don’t have a favorite non-profit, I donate to The Rose, a fabulous local breast health organization. My Business is Real Estate, My Dream is a Cure!
