I can’t wait to help you reach your real estate dreams!

What are your real estate dreams and how can I help make them come true?

My 15+ years In the Real Estate Industry has been a winding road. I have taken many paths to lead me to the Real Estate Broker I am today.


Real estate found me in 2003 when I stumbled into the opportunity to buy a house at a foreclosure auction in Edmonds. With very little knowledge about the industry, I bought and flipped my first house and discovered I loved the whole process. I started my own company flipping houses and had five successful years. That 5 years was an exciting education in every step in the buying, renovating and selling journey.

Wanting to learn another aspect of real estate, I joined Bennett Homes, a custom home builder, working in customer care. My job was walking clients through each step of the buying and building process. I came to understand the many challenges new homeowners face when looking for their dream home and then turning that dream into reality. I learned the importance of understanding each step and how to listen and help each client with their individual challenges. Since leaving Bennett Homes, I worked as a Real Estate Transaction Coordinator for over 5 years processing well over 900 transactions. Overseeing this many contracts has allowed me to create working relationships with title, escrow, lenders and agents across Snohomish & King County. Processing transactions from beginning to end has been an invaluable learning experience to watch the market trends and learn to understand the complexities of the real estate contract process.


I have now brought all my past experiences in real estate to RE/MAX Town Center as a Real Estate Broker. I am thrilled to be a member of the RE/MAX community and proud to be backed by their international reputation and integrity. I specialize in Snohomish County as have lived and worked in this area for over 35 years.

Being a Real Estate Broker is the perfect way to bring together my past experience and knowledge in the industry to help you fulfill your real estate goals. I am here to listen to your needs and apply my knowledge and experience to help you accomplish to your dreams. I will be by your side from beginning to end and long after your transaction is closed. Lifelong relationships created through trust and communication is my ultimate goal.

Snohomish County is my home. I grew up in Woodway and have lived in Edmonds for the last 21 years. Prior to my real estate career, I spent 12 years in television news working in Arizona, Kansas, California & of course, Seattle, I attended boarding school in Tucson, AZ and earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism from Chapman University in California. Over the years, I have had the incredible opportunity to travel to over 45 countries and hope to continue exploring new cultures well into retirement. My amazing husband, Brian, and I are recent empty nesters, with our only daughter now in college. For fun we enjoy spending time going to concerts, award shows, and trying to control the chaos of our two new puppies, Chandler Bing & Brody.
