What I Write

Family/Life Stories

I love meeting new people and finding out what makes them tick. I love listening as their story unfolds. People are amazing. I have learned something from everyone I have ever interviewed that has enriched and challenged my own life.


There is so much beauty in this world. My mother taught me that you can find beauty in anything as long as you look for it. I love taking my family to new places to find more beauty to add to our collection.

Real Estate

When others were playing at recess, I was looking at a book of home plans my father bought me. I love houses and have always enjoyed searching the Multiple Listing Service for fun. I am excited to work with my father-in-law on a new renovation and to share its progress with you.
