Are you searching for a REALTOR® who is educated, experienced, and hard-working? If so, you've found me! I am a University of Idaho graduate with a Master’s degree from Gonzaga University. I have lived in North Idaho since 1985 and I love everything the area has to offer such as skiing, boating, hiking, fly-fishing, and rafting--just to name a few. I grew up on a Quarter Horse ranch above Blue Creek Bay and fell in love with the beautiful mountains and forests surrounding Coeur d'Alene.Before I started my real estate career in 2004, I worked in education. I worked with kids with special needs in the Coeur d'Alene district and was a high school counselor in the Lakeland district. I also worked as an Academic Advisor at the University of Phoenix. Once I started investing in Real Estate I decided I should become an agent. Turns out, I love it! Twenty years later, I still enjoy extending a helping hand to people of all ages, backgrounds, and experiences. Whether you're buying your first home, an investment property, or upgrading to accommodate your growing family, I'm here to make the process as simple and fun as possible.Education is still something I hold dear since I have 2 students in the Cda District, so I stay involved in any way I can. I am on the Board of the EXCEL committee which grants hundreds of thousands of dollars to teachers every year. For the past 8 years, I have delivered for "The Backpack Program," which provides food to schools for kids in need. I was a member of the Long Range Planning Committee for 10 years, which works to keep the Coeur d'Alene School District's educational opportunity to the highest standard. I also spent 5 years on the North Idaho Fair and Rodeo Foundation Board which works to improve the fairgrounds and also provides scholarships to college-bound students. I'd love to get the chance to meet you and help you explore your real estate possibilities. Whether you're buying, selling, or just interested in what's happening in today's market, call me!
