About Me


I am a native Missourian, born and raised on a farm in Southern Missouri. Growing up, I was always passionate about all creatures great and small.  After moving to California I received a degree in Animal Science.  After 11 years in sunny California I moved back to the Ozark hills. Prior to my Real Estate career I owned an insurance agency for 18 years, plus renovated and operated a Bed & Breakfast in Steelville, MO. I love my Vineyard Church here in Rolla, Missouri. My hobbies include spending time with my family & friends, traveling the world as professional dog nanny, music, all things beachy and helping people and animals in need.  


I am a licensed Broker Salesperson. Having owned my own office for many years I understand what it takes to be the best.  I specialize in representing my clients in the purchase and sale of homes, farms, land and income property.  I truly love this area and sharing it with others.  I have the knowledge on current and sold values, school districts, neighborhood information, and related services, including mortgage, insurance and inspection information.  

I am a customer driven Realtor dedicated to achieving results and providing exceptional service. If you are in the market to buy or sell a home, I will put my 18 years of real estate expertise to work for you!
