Prior to my move to the Triangle area of North Carolina in 2009, I had been a litigation paralegal ​and co-owned a litigation support company headquartered in Austin, Texas. My husband and I ​moved here to be near our first grandchild (we now have NINE), and I decided to make a career ​change in 2012. After obtaining my real estate license (something I had often considered), I ​worked as a real estate paralegal for a year to garner more knowledge and build my business. In ​addition, I sat on the Rolesville Planning Board to gain knowledge of how growth is planned for a ​community, and I currently sit on the Wake County Board of Equalization and Review (appraisal ​review board). This experience coupled with my determination to be the best I can be has ​helped me stand out in the crowd. Real estate has become a great passion of mine, and I am ​thankful for the success I am enjoying in this role I plan to keep until the end of time!


As a former Educator with a Masters of Information Sciences, as well as a self-employed ​business owner and busy mom, I’ve always been driven to accomplish what I set out to achieve. ​Having relocated to the Triangle area with my husband and two sons, I understand the ​experience of moving to a new community and the importance of being represented fully when ​selling or purchasing a home. Through my years juggling teaching, business ownership, and ​motherhood, I have always had a passion for Real Estate. Our move to the Triangle area was the ​perfect stepping stone to pursue that passion! I am thrilled to be able to aide others in what I ​see as a very important decision, and I would be honored to help you with your next move.


A Virginia native, I relocated to Raleigh in the mid-90s as an elementary school teacher. After ​several years, I began the search for my “starter home” and began my home search. It was ​during this time that I discovered how much I enjoyed the real estate industry. My broker and I ​had several conversations regarding a career in real estate and from there I penned a new ​chapter! I am a proud husband and father of two sons and two fur babies. We currently call ​Wake Forest home after 17 years in North Raleigh. I enjoy the opportunities being an agent ​provides. I am somewhat of a conversationalist and love having people “share their stories“ with ​me. I look forward to hearing your story and assisting in your real estate journey.
