I’ve held my real estate license for over 20 years, and for part of that time, I worked for a corporate relocation company. I’m a native St. Louis gal – born and raised – who has been in Memphis for 30 years since I met my husband at a wedding here in 1989. Paying my way through college as a bartender and waitress, I graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in Public Administration and have since continued my career in the restaurant, retail, and real estate industries.

While I have worked in many different industries over the course of my career, I have always been driven by my desire to help people. Whether it’s crafting a killer cocktail, setting them up with a jaw-dropping outfit, or finding the perfect house, I pride myself on doing whatever it takes to make sure my clients are happy. In my free time, I enjoy walking my dogs outside, cooking a delicious meal, and road-tripping across the country with my family.
