"If I could live anywhere in the world, it would be right here!"
I was born and raised on the West Coast of Florida - spending my days in the Florida sun - beaches, fishing, biking and picking wild flowers...
Back then the area was much different! We only had a few small chain restaurants, a couple of golf courses, and very few luxury neighborhoods.
My mom and dad raised my brother and I in a modest home where we played outside everyday. The outdoor life made us feel like we were always on vacation! We were taught the valuable lesson that a home is far more than walls and a roof.
My brother and I would ride our bikes, fish in the lakes near our home and pick wild flowers for my mom. Getting slathered with sunscreen and heading to the beach was a regular routine during our childhood.
This is when I first fell in love with the Florida lifestyle.
After college, I joined the corporate world and found a passion for customer service.
Starting my career in retail, I worked as a merchandising assistant for JC Penney. After several years, looking for new challenges, I became a branch manager for Enterprise Rent A Car in the Tampa Bay area.
Later I went to work for my family's manufacturing company (Accuform) where I became one of the top salespeople in the Nation. I traveled frequently, covering the West Coast of the United States. It was a fun job, and it gave me a chance to hone my sales skills. I might have been "a tad bit" competitive.
It was at this time that I met my husband, who was also in sales at Accuform. I let him know that I welcomed the competition, with a firm handshake... (we've been married for 20 years now).
John and I have four boys who have all enjoyed growing up right here on Florida's Nature Coast and experiencing all that this area has to offer!
My faith, my family, and serving the real estate needs of my community are the things that drive me.
Faith has been the cornerstone of every aspect of my life, as I try to live out our family mission: "Be joyful always, pray continually, and give thanks in all circumstances". 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Whether you are thinking about selling your home or buying the home of your dreams, you can trust me to act with integrity every step of the way.
I am thankful for every opportunity to help you find the home that will provide memories for a lifetime. Memories that will undoubtedly include this wonderful Florida Lifestyle!
