“Chicago born, but Texas raised! In 1995, I moved from Beaumont to Austin to complete my BA in Business Administration at St. Edward’s University. In that same year, I obtained my real estate license and began my successful career helping people sell their homes and move up into their next dream home as their lives evolve. Seeing the smile on a person’s face after they have the keys to their new home placed in their hands is such a wonderful feeling. Just knowing that you were part of making someone’s dreams come true is the greatest reward of this profession. When I am not working, I enjoy just about anything that gets me outside, which means I live in the perfect city! Outdoor living is what Austin is all about! You can find me training for marathons and triathlons, boating, fishing, paddleboarding, mountain biking all around the Austin/ Hill Country area. The best part is that in many of the marathons and triathlons that I participate in, I get to combine my love of the act
