Previously an entrepreneur and software consultant and trainer, I use the interpersonal, communication, research and tech skills I gained in these careers to help you sell and find the right home. Working with honesty, integrity, and a passion for helping others, I put your home buying and selling needs first and foremost.
When not helping clients, I enjoy time outdoors and volunteering for community organizations on Amherst Island, where I live with my husband, two children and our whoodle.
