“Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress: Working hard for something we love is called passion”
- Simon Sinek
I am a California native that calls Marin County home. If home is truly where the heart is, then I can say I’ve followed my heart and love where I live. My knowledge and love for the area, coupled with my work ethic, strong negotiation skills and commitment to my client’s needs, make me a great choice to help you with one of the biggest decisions of your life, buying and/or selling your home.
While I was born in Southern California, I spent my formative middle and high school years in Hailey, Idaho. I’ve called Marin County home for over 30 years. When I first visited my mom, while a caretaker for a property in Belvedere, I was awestruck by Marin’s natural beauty and all the area had to offer. I packed up my college dorm and headed to Marin County.
I graduated from UC Davis, with a degree in Landscape, City, and Regional Planning, after being inspired by a local Marin County Landscape Contractor, whom I worked for, in between attending Boise State and UC Davis. After Davis, I worked for Grubb & Ellis, practicing Commercial Leasing and Sales in Sacramento. Always knowing that I wanted to make it back to the Bay Area, I pursued a career in Residential Mortgage Lending, working on both the wholesale and retail side of the business, serving customers and mortgage brokers in San Francisco, Marin, and Sonoma Counties.
