My primary business background has been in sales and marketing. I owned my first business in 1998. From that venture, I gained a plethora of marketing, sales, management, and service experience. This led me to my true passion, Real Estate.
At the start of my real estate career in 2002, I was in Central Texas near Fort Hood, the largest military base in the free world. I met my husband there and began a life as a military spouse with experiences, challenges, and rewards I could never have imagined. When my husband was assigned command of the STB (Special Troops Battalion) of the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division at Fort Bliss, we picked up shop. We moved to El Paso, where I continued to help military families to buy and sell homes. After two deployments and twenty years of service, my husband retired in 2008, which led us to Tampa in 2010 and his new career at MacDill Air Force Base. I hated to leave my home state of Texas but was excited to experience life in the Sunshine State and set up an amazing vacation getaway space for my kids and grandkids. So it was, in 2011, that I began my Florida real estate career, and I must say, I could not be happier.
My experience working with Veterans and the Military Community led me to the Tampa VA Network. I co-founded the VA Network to ensure all Veterans and active duty Service Members have access to businesses they can trust and depend on. At the Network, we have a collection of Business Members and Non-Profit Organizations who share a desire to truly serve our veteran community on a foundation of trust and with integrity. Local Veterans can access and join the site for free in order to meet these selected companies and to access their exclusive discounts for our members. All Business Members and Non-Profit Organizations of the VA Network have been 'Vetted for Vets'
When I'm not selling homes, you will likely find me at a Veteran's function or networking with Vetted for Vets business owners and non-profit founders. I am always seeking to align myself with the good people of our community who love and support Veterans. At home, I am likely hanging out in my backyard where I enjoy gardening and playing with my dogs. Every Wednesday night, I spend time with my father enjoying one of our local restaurants in the Lutz, Land O'Lakes, or Wesley Chapel areas. I am always looking forward to my next trip to Texas to see my Texas family.
I love my job, and I love my life here in Florida. Whether I am working with Buyers or Sellers, I can’t imagine doing anything else.
