Coming from a teaching background and after 14 years of being a stay-at-home mom, I found a passion for the world of real estate. I have been a full-time REALTOR® since 2006 and while most of my work keeps me in Jackson County, I do work all over the metro area and I am licensed in both Missouri and Kansas. Referrals and repeat business are the substance of my real estate career and when you refer your family, friends, and associates to me, you can be confident that they will receive the highest quality service and commitment they expect and deserve throughout their transaction and beyond. I currently serve on the Missouri Association of REALTORS® Board of Directors, and on the governing board of the Missouri State Chapter of Women's Council of REALTORS®. I am also a certified Military Relocation Professional, Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource, and Seller Representative Specialist, Buyer Representative Specialist, and have earned my Graduate of Realtor Institue designation. I enjoy cooking, traveling, playing golf, and yoga. I also spend time volunteering for Habitat for Humanity and Special Olympics and fundraising for St Jude Children's Hospital.
