I am originally from the Detroit area and moved to Indianapolis in January 1990.
I received my Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 1984 from Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan.
My varied career has included publishing, computing and marketing. From March 1992 to December 2002
I was co-founder and co-owner of a Carmel, Indiana based communication and systems management software reselling company.
I have also had the pleasure of working for the Indianapolis CBS affiliate, WISH-TV channel 8 as a New Media Account Executive, responsible for marketing and
promotion of their 24-hour award-winning news website, wishtv.com.
I have a beautiful 13-year old daughter Elizabeth
who keeps me very busy! In addition, some of my interests include
reading, writing, website development and content management,
gardening and cooking. I have also volunteered my time to many local
chapters of non-profit groups like the American Diabetes
Association, the Greater Indianapolis Literacy League, the Muscular
Dystrophy Association and Never Too
Late, a wonderful organization that granted wishes for
Real Estate is
a passion of mine. I love helping my clients find exactly the right
property, whether that is a personal residence or investment
property and negotiating the best possible deal. Existing or new
construction, I walk my clients through all steps of a transaction,
making sure they are fully informed of their choices and
obligations. My goal is to provide you with the best service and
support in the pursuit of your real estate objectives.
