About Me

Asking me where I’m from can turn into a really long conversation. As an Air Force brat, I went to 12 different schools growing up – from Tucson to Boston, and then on to England. I know the thrill and sadness of venturing out to a new state or just a new neighborhood.

I bought my first house with my husband when I was 21 – we had to eat potatoes for months to save up for the down payment. Even with 8% interest, we knew that buying a house would give us financial stability. Fast-forward a couple of decades, we now own several rental properties and can personally attest to the power of home-ownership.

In my previous career, I taught Art and Architectural History at Metropolitan State University of Denver. I received my Masters from the University of Colorado, and taught Egyptian, Byzantine, Medieval, Renaissance and Contemporary Art and Architecture. Researching and finding answers to my clients’ questions comes naturally to me, and I can help you navigate Denver’s unique combination of domestic architecture.

What came of all of this? A Realtor who has high visual and analytical skills, and empathy for the emotional roller-coaster of moving. Whether you’re buying your first home, selling your existing home, or moving from another state, I strive to empower each of my clients to make confident real estate decisions. My goal is to help maximize my client’s investment and help them achieve the life they desire.

When I’m not working, I love to travel to any location with water, play with my dog named Ginger, and prepare over-complicated recipes.
