I was born and raised in Vermont by two of the most honest, decent and hardworking people I know. Honesty, integrity, hard work and good values were the cornerstone of our family life. I am one of six children, therefore, I know how to work well with others. I graduated college in 1991 and then attended a French Immersion program that following summer in Quebec. In 1993, I married a Naval Officer. We moved five times and had three beautiful children during our 10 years of marriage. I have been a working, single mom since 2002 and practicing Real Estate since 2004. I believe strongly in volunteering my time to help others and have done this by being a soccer coach for roughly 13 years and holding various volunteer positions within the Hampton Roads Realtor Association, as well as being the founder of a volunteer organization called "Realtors Have a Heart". Finally, I believe my upbringing has made me the type of agent I am today and that all of my life experiences have helped me to relate to just about everyone I have the pleasure of working with.
