A little bit about me

My family moved to the Asheville area in 2002, and we immediately fell in love with the mountains, rivers, and art culture. My dad built our home on Cane Creek, and taught us everything that he could about building a house. I attended the University of North Carolina Asheville, where I majored in economics, with an emphasis in the economics of food. I spent many years as a chef, which got me through school. My focus on food distribution and conservation helped me implement new structures in restaurants to benefit the homeless/hungry while cutting down on food waste that is harmful to our atmosphere and contributes to climate change. Leaving the food industry was a huge and difficult decision, but I was ready for a new adventure. Next, I began working at a mortgage lending firm, where I learned a whole new skillset. The housing industry has always been of interest to me. However, sitting at a desk for 40 hours a week... not so much! I decided to go to real estate school because I enjoy interacting with people outside of the office. I know and love the thrill of finding a new home, and I wanted to help others have that opportunity. In my free time I enjoy hiking, gardening, cooking, vacationing at Lake Hartwell, playing my bassoon, and woodworking with my husband.
