More About Me

My goal is that every client feels like the only client!

After an unforgettable honeymoon in Oregon, I knew this state was where I wanted to build my future. In 2002, I made the leap from my home state of Michigan, armed with a degree in Microbiology from Michigan State University, and embarked on a journey that would ultimately lead me to a career in real estate.

My professional journey began in the healthcare sector, where I carved out a rewarding path in healthcare project management. Most notably, I played a pivotal role in the establishment of the COVID-19 Molecular Microbiology lab at OHSU (Oregon Health & Science University). I also spearheaded the startup and implementation of OHSU's mobile testing and vaccination units, contributing to our community's safety during challenging times.

However, as much as I cherished my work in healthcare, my heart has always been drawn to the world of real estate. It all began when my spouse and I purchased our first home, igniting a passion for the possibilities that homeownership brings. I found myself constantly engaged in conversations with friends and family about mortgages, buying homes, and home improvement projects. It became clear to me that it was time to pivot and embark on a new career path—one that allowed me to channel my enthusiasm for helping others into guiding them through the intricate journey of purchasing their dream homes.
