Originally from Rhode Island, I have lived in Pinellas County for 30+ years. Prior to my Real Estate career I was in the Medical field as a Radiologic Technologist for 20+ yrs, specializing in mammography. I then obtained my Nursing degree (R.N.) in 1996. I entered real estate in 2002 and love working and helping people! My passion is education and I pride myself in being the best I can for my clients. I obtained my ABR (Accredited Buyers Representative) designation as my first designation to fully understand how to assist Buyers. Shortly after I obtained my e-PRO designation, which is an advanced designation relating to internet marketing. In 2006 I proudly received my C.R.S. (Council of Residential Specialists) which is a Top Producing award. 3% of Realtors in the Country obtain this designation! The designation is earned through Education and Production in Real Estate. I received my MRP "Military Relocation Professional" designation in order to help our military with their home buying goals. I received the 2014 Beacon Award through the WCR that I belong to as (the top 3) Top Producer single agents in Pinellas County, and continue to earn this award. In addition I have earned my CIPS (Certified International Property Specialist) designation along with several Leadership awards. My passion was and still continues to be Learning. I help my clients by guiding them to get the "Best Price, Most Protection and Least Amount of Stress" in their Real Estate decisions.
