While I wasn’t born in Sierra Viista I am FROM sierra Vista. My Paternal grandparents first built a home here is 1971 and anothr about 8 years later. My family lived close and visited often until we moved here when I was 9. I moved to Germany for a few years after high school; Met my husband, Chuck, got married, had a couple of kids and the Army brought us back to Sierra Vista in 1994. It’s been fun to see this town change and growso much over the years. Three of our five children were bornn in Sierra Vista. We have five of the most fabulous daughters and eight positively brilliant and gorgeous grandkids!
Pledge to Clients: I started my first job at 15 years old in retail at a childrens clothing store, so you could say that I “grew up” in customer service. This helped me see at an early age that I have a genuine interest in people and a heart for helping and seeing others achieve their goals. Creating a positive experience for those around me is something I always strive for, and I am committed to finding my clients their dream homes or selling their current homes with the highest level of service.
I have had some amazing opportunities in Sierra Vista from Director of Marketing of the Mall at Sierra Vista for about four years to Assistant Director of a non-profit organization and more recently marketing for a mortgage company for about four years. That introduction to the world of real estate started this new journey that I’m on and I am excited to help people with all of their real estate needs!

Outside Interests: Anyone who knows me, knows I have a slight obsession with sloths. I made it my mission to meet all the sloths in the state of Arizona!
You’ll often see me with a camera because I have a passion for taking photos of just about anything.
When I am not running around seeing all the sloths in the state, you can find me in my backyard with my two dogs, Gronk the Chihuahua and Biggie the St. Berdoodle or watching a NY Mets baseball game because I bleed blue and orange!
Personal Information: First and foremost, I am the mom of 2 amazing kids, Brady and Kayleen. They are the driving force behind everything I do, and I will take any opportunity to brag about their achievements.
I’m a proud New Yorker, born and raised on Long Island, where I met my husband, Dave, in Kindergarten. That’s right. We’ve known each other since we were 5 years old! I went to college in Upstate NY and finished my degree in New York City at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
Although we seemed to be going in one direction, life threw us a curve ball that landed us in Sierra Vista, AZ. I promised my husband that I would give Sierra Vista a chance but being the city girl that I am, I figured we’d last a year and then head home. Little did I know that I would would fall head over heels in love with this city! We’ve now been here for 18 years, and I cannot imagine us living or raising our children anywhere else!
