I was born and raised in Salem, Oregon. In my early twenties, I made the move to Southern California but found myself homesick. It was then I realized that I was a Pacific Northwest girl at heart. I have a broad knowledge of Salem and the surrounding areas. I’m confident that I’ll be able to help clients whether it’s looking for a dream home, or getting top dollar for the sale of a home.

In my professional career, I worked as a Legal Assistant for the Marion County District Attorney’s Office for 15 years. In 2018, I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Thankfully, I went into remission after a Bone Marrow Transplant.  As I returned to work, I began to re-evaluate the priorities in my life. The most important things were spending quality time with my family and eventually finding something I was passionate about professionally. I realized how much I enjoyed real estate. With my new passion and the idea that I could help people realize a dream, it only felt right to pursue a career in real estate.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family. My husband, Brian, is a local real estate photographer. We have one daughter, Hudsen and a son, Dallas.  As a family, we enjoy family movie nights and family getaways. Some of our favorite places to go in Oregon are Garibaldi, Government Camp, and Eagle Crest. We also enjoy spending time with our corgi, Rocco, golden retriever, Sienna, and our rescue puppy, Piper.

As a realtor, I want to be an advocate for the clients I represent. As someone who has bought and sold personally, I understand that the process can be very stressful. My goal is to make the process as smooth as possible for my clients while giving them the time and attention they deserve to make sure they feel they are making the right decisions. Good customer service is very important to me. I want my clients to know their best interest is the most important thing to me!
