“The progression of taking a first time home buyer through to close is inspiring”
Although I’m a scientist by trade, having received a Geology degree from Tulane and working in environmental consulting for 20 years, I always found myself gravitating towards a different field, one that would allow me to combine my process-oriented mind with the ability to help people directly.
After leaving Louisiana I moved to Florida and became the co-owner of a personal training facility. Owning this business let me work with people and see the impact I was making in their lives. During the recession, our business shifted and I was given the opportunity to work with a neighbor, who was a realtor. I earned my license and about three years later, moved to Atlanta, where my three siblings were already living.
Shortly after moving to Georgia, I met Pam [Ahern] and I decided to join the team. I enjoy the day-to-day activities of being a realtor and the details that go along with it, but what really drives me is working side-by-side with first time home buyers. It’s up to me to educate and nurture them through the process and show them all of the possibilities along the way. It’s exciting to see the difference from the beginning of the process to the buyers at the closing table, now feeling empowered with the knowledge I’ve helped them gain along the way. Pam has always provided me with great support and coaching and I get to do the same with my clients.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my siblings and being out in nature, hiking and working in the garden. I also serve on committees that allow me to make a big difference, such as the Atlanta Realtors Association and the Atlanta Independent Women’s Network, in addition to being part of the 2020 Emerging Leaders program.
I thrive off of working with my clients and seeing the results.
