I am the mother of 4 wonderful sons and fortunate to have a large extended family who are very close to one another. At an early age, I developed an appreciation for having space to call my own. Growing up in rural La Crescent, MN my father worked construction and my family had a hobby farm. I enjoyed helping my father with his business or my mother caring for the home, and spending time outdoors caring for the animals and working in the field and gardens.
In my adult years I attended college while raising my family and working full time. I graduated with a degree in marketing and further education in industrial electrical engineering. My dream was to provide well enough for my children that they would have the privilege I did of space to run and a home to call their own. When they were still small, we purchased some land and built our home. This was one of the best decisions we ever made, the biggest investment, and well worth the hard work. That home has been the “base of operations” for the family and a sanctuary for us for nearly 20 years. Over the years, I have developed a passion for making home improvements, learning how to do most of the improvements myself, and spending quality time with my boys doing projects indoors and outdoors on our home.
After nearly 27 years in the corporate world I found myself seeking a new career. I wanted to do something that matters, helping the public and meeting new people. My passion for home ownership and the security it can provide has driven me to real estate. I will never underestimate the gravity of the decision to either list or purchase your home, my responsibility to listen to your dreams and needs, to help you find the perfect fit for you and your family, and to make the process as smooth and stress free as possible. I value integrity, honesty, commitment, and hard work and will demonstrate those values working with you to achieve your dream.
