My first taste of real estate ownership was in the Artondale neighborhood of Gig Harbor. I am passionate about this business because I get to build relationships while selling homes. Also I love fashion and design and working on my investment properties gives me a chance to express my creative side. I am heavily involved in industry issues and protecting the rights of home owners. I have served on the Tacoma-Pierce County Association of Realtors, Leadership Council, and as President of the Women's Council of Realtors. I am a people person — when I'm not working, I spend time volunteering, entertaining and cooking for friends.
