I was born and raised in San Diego and later married an Air Force guy, Vernon, who took me on a 20 year adventure. During this time we lived in Washington, England, New York and Colorado. When our daughter decided to land in Kansas, we followed the Yellow Brick Road to be part of her new life and growing family. My life before real estate was in higher education, working at colleges and with the Navy as a guidance counselor. I graduated from Southern Illinois University and Chapman University with degrees in education and counseling. I joined ReeceNichols in 2002 and have worked with clients who are buying for the first time, selling loved family homes, transitioning to new communities and building new homes. Making a difference in people's lives has been incredibly rewarding. But the best part of my job is working with my daughter - a truly awesome partner! When I'm not breathing real estate, I love to spend time with two handsome grandsons, traveling with Vernon, camping and spoiling our furry son.
Having traveled the world as an Air Force "brat", it has been a joy to call the Kansas City area my home for almost 20 years. I am a proud 2000 graduate of Baker University in Baldwin City, KS. After a career in non-profit program management, I embarked on a new adventure and joined Lori (aka 'Mom') at ReeceNichols in 2009. My areas of specialty are: new construction, rural properties, investment properties, and buying or selling anywhere from Gardner to Grain Valley. I most often work alongside my husband Jeff, owner of Ridge Craft Custom Homes. We have two fantastic, growing boys and spend a LOT of our time at sporting events or buying more groceries. My philosophy in work and in life is to stay positive, keep a level head and be persistent! I look forward to the opportunity to get to know YOU and learn about your goals as a home buyer or seller.
