As a resident of Jefferson County since 1958, I have seen the progress and appreciate the uniqueness of our area. I grew up in DeSoto, then attended Jefferson College and Southeast Missouri State University, earning a Master of Arts in Teaching. Having been on both sides of the desk, I understand the importance of good schools. I also understand the desire to get the most for your housing dollar.
Professionally, I spent the first 30 plus years in education at various levels, from elementary to post graduate. When I retired, I wasn't content sitting at home, so I went to something I loved to do -- selling. While teaching, I worked part-time at Cooper's Shoe Store in the Twin City Mall. In 2004 I started selling real estate; sure is different than shoes! I'm a member of the National Realtors Association, the Missouri Association of Realtors, the Jefferson County Board of Realtors and the Missouri National Education Association.
