I’ve been fortunate enough to call Bainbridge Island home for the past 24 years. Right now, I have a small client list so that I can dedicate my time and efforts to my clients’ needs. People often describe me as friendly, perceptive, and driven. As a resourceful problem solver, I enjoy tackling challenges with a thorough, analytical approach. I have bought and sold homes as a single woman, a married woman, and married with children. I understand the concerns, obstacles, and excitement that can come with moving, and I’m here to help. Some clients want to put down roots, find a second home, or sell and make a change. Whatever your goals are, I will guide you through the process. My local real estate knowledge and my community involvement provide buyers and sellers with a wealth of resources and support.
I possess a broad local network and have held various volunteer and leadership positions in schools, nonprofits, and in the arts community. More specifically, I’ve been on the Bainbridge Public Library Board, I was the Community Relations Director at a Seattle nonprofit, and I taught in Bainbridge Island public schools. Currently, I serve as a docent at Seattle Art Museum, I’m a Washington Park Arboretum volunteer, a member and volunteer at Assumption Greek Orthodox Church, and a member and past leader of the Junior League of Seattle.
Originally from Milwaukee, I graduated from University School of Milwaukee and attended Ripon College, earning a B.S. and an M.Ed. from Marquette University. After completing additional graduate work at the University of Wisconsin in Special Education and Leadership Administration, I taught in both Milwaukee public schools and Chicago suburbs.
Moving here in 1998 was the best decision for me and my family. We had many adventures exploring the area aboard our wooden Grand Banks. I also enjoy playing tennis, hiking, painting, reading, traveling, visiting Bloedel Reserve, and frequenting local museums like Poulsbo Maritime Museum, Suquamish Museum, and BIMA. Kitsap County provides many opportunities for cultural experiences and outdoor adventures and Seattle is just a short ferry ride away. It’s truly the best of both worlds.
