I'm a native Floridian, born and raised in Venice. At 21, I moved to California for 18 years. I have since lived on St. Simons Island, GA and in Austin, TX. I returned to Florida at the end of 2002, obtained my real estate license in 2003 and began actively selling at the start of 2004. I have several family members that were in real estate and finally realized that this is where I want to be. I am a member of the Punta Gorda-Port Charlotte-North Port Board of Realtors, the Florida Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors, and am a multi-million dollar producer. Bowling is a favorite pastime and I belong to a women???Ts league in Venice. I also like dogs and enjoy spending time with my Rottweiler???Ts, Mickie and Nero. Some of my earliest jobs were as a Veterinarian Assistant, so I have an interest in many types of animals, including cats, parrots and ??? dare I say ??? snakes. Of all the jobs I???Tve had, I can truly say I love selling real estate. Every day you???Tre meeting new people and are in a position to help them, whether it???Ts finding the home of their dreams, a vacation home, an investment property or helping them to sell their property. It???Ts always a joy to bring a purchase or sale to a successful closing.
