She enjoys working with individuals/families on their home search as well as selling their current home.  She is sensitive to the emotion and excitement that goes into both events.  It is emotional handing over the keys to a happy new homeowner or taking down a sold sign in the yard of a home that her clients have made memories in.

A resident of Fort Wayne, she has kids attending Carroll Schools who are very active in travel baseball and football. She loves to travel, enjoys vacations with her family, visiting new places and experiencing new cultures.  She has family in California and Texas, which she loves to visit every chance they get.
