I became a Realtor in January 2016 after 30 years in the financial services industry. The many years and various roles that I held throughout my career helped prepare me for my transition to a Realtor. I spent 20 of these years in management responsible for quality, procedures, compliance, audit readiness, Executive/OCC complaints, Fraud/AML etc. The leadership positions I held provided the opportunity to build many skills that I use every day to help my clients in one of the most important transactions of their lives!

My years of quality and customer-centric focus is the staple of my business and I am focused on earning a client and friend for life; not just collecting a commission check!  During my career, I was continually recognized for various achievements but I am most proud of being recognized for my diversity and inclusion by being nominated and receiving the "Arizona Inroads Supervisor of the Year". 

I believe that continuing education is key to serving my clients to the best of my ability.  I currently have received my ABR, GRI, MRP, and AWREP designations.  In addition, I am pursuing my rCRMS as well as other designations. 

I am a native New Yorker who is proud to call the Valley my home since 1993. Not only did my husband and I relocate to Arizona but my parents, sisters and their families, in-laws and brother-in-law and family did as well. I have been married for 30 years and have two very active and productive children that I am very proud of as well as four fur babies. 

I get a lot of joy out of supporting various charities and organizations. I have completed the Susan G Komen 3 Day/ 60 mile Walk for the Cure twice, Christmas Angels, St Jude's, ASPC etc.  In addition, I actively volunteer and raises fund for Follow Your Heart Animal Rescue/Hospital, My Hope Bag and 100+ Women Who Care.  I am an active Gilbert Rotarian as well as a member of the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce.

My motto is: "Giving Back One House at a Time" and would love to help you with your Real Estate needs.
