I grew up on beautiful Whidbey Island in a military community. I attended the University of Washington in Seattle where I studied Biology, Psychology, Pre-Medicine & Spanish. I relocated to Portland, OR working in mental healthcare, emergency veterinary medicine, wildlife rehabilitation & grief counseling. In 2020, I returned home to Whidbey to earn my Real Estate License in March of 2021, working for my family business Acorn Properties. I was awarded the North Puget Sound Association of REALTORS® (NPSAR) 2021 Rookie of the Year & Whidbey Island Association of REALTORS® (WIAR) 2022 Rookie of the Year. I strongly believe in building as much knowledge as I can. I have earned the At Home with Diversity (AHWD), Commitment to Excellence (C2EX), Military Relocation Professional (MRP) & Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA) Certifications & the GREEN® & Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES®) Designations. I am involved with my local REALTOR® Associations as the Education Committee Vice Chair for NPSAR & Secretary of WIAR. I also am a Board Member in charge of Marketing for North Whidbey Hearts & Hammers, a non-profit committed to helping our most vulnerable homeowners live safely in their homes by repairing/improving their homes at no cost. I coach two youth soccer teams for my nephew & niece through North Whidbey Soccer Club. I would be honored to help you achieve your Real Estate goals through buying or selling or by referring you to the Acorn Properties Property Management department for rentals.
