About Me

“No house too big or too small . . . no problem too large . . . together we’ll succeed!”

I’m a transplant to Knoxville from Wisconsin. I moved here over 29 years ago, and feel like a native. I can readily empathize with relocating buyers and sellers and know what is needed to smooth the transition for you. No matter the price range, no matter the issues encountered during your real estate transaction, you will receive unrelenting service!

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a degree in French and Spanish. Current hobbies of mine include spending time with the family, reading, and traveling.

I have participated for the last 10 years in the governance of the Knoxville Area Association of REALTORS® including serving as the 2008 President of the then 4000+ member Board. I have served on the Tennessee Association of REALTORS® Board of Directors since 2001 and on the National Association of REALTORS® Board of Directors in 2008. I was the 2006 President of the Tennessee State Women’s Council of REALTORS® and the 2009 President of the State of Tennessee International Council.

Civic involvement includes membership in the Farragut Rotary Club, American Cancer Society Health Leadership Initiative Council, charter membership in the Fort Loudon Lake Association, and past service on the Farragut West Knoxville Chamber of Commerce, where I was the recipient of the 2002 Chamber’s Joan McIntee Diplomat of the Year award. I was also chosen by the Tennessee Housing Development Authority to serve on their REALTOR Advisory Board for the State of Tennessee in 2009.

I am a certified trainer through the Tennessee Association of REALTORS® and the Tennessee Real Estate Commission for the CORE course, and I have done training at the Knoxville Area Association of REALTORS® and at individual real estate offices affiliated with our Association.

My main focus remains, however, on my clients and customers. They deserve and receive million dollar treatment, no matter what the price of the property! Service beyond your expectation is my goal—because I expect it!
