I moved to New Hampshire when I was 5 years old. My family and I landed first in New Ipswich and then transitioned to an old farmhouse on 60 acres next to Lake Monomonac in Rindge -- a home that my parents still live in today. Picture pastoral fields and a traditional barn in a beautiful New England farm setting... oh, and cows! The oldest of five kids, we spent our early years finding ways to entertain ourselves. In such a rural setting, nature offered us endless, four-season childhood adventures and explorations -- boating and skating on Lake Monomonac, skiing at Mount Watatic (before its closure), and hiking Gap Mountain and Mount Monadnock are a few of my favorites -- but I still knew I had found my place. After graduating from Keene State College, I started my career in philanthropy at Monadnock Community Hospital. During this time, my family and I purchased our first home and began our first major renovation. It was during that time that I fell in love with real estate and all things “home.” Real estate has always been a part of my family -- my father is quite a prolific investor himself -- so it seemed a natural fit for me. After 15 years in philanthropy -- managing 160+ volunteers, spearheading new community programs, and donor contributions -- I left my position at the hospital and dove headfirst into the world of real estate. My deep connection to and involvement in my community set me up for early and continued success.
Walking away from philanthropy was hard, but the desire to improve my community and help my neighbors has carried over into my real estate business. I still get to provide opportunities, just in a different way now. I get to support my clients through one of the biggest transactions of their lives as their trusted real estate professional and friend. Guiding them through this often stressful and emotional experience is really special for me. I know that buying or selling a home can be very challenging, but I strive to make all of my clients’ real estate experiences seamless, successful, and, hopefully, even fun.
Outside of work, you are likely to find me outdoors, usually with my family. The home we live in now allows us to be outdoors all the time -- from enjoying our 50 acres of land and an unbelievable, unobstructed view of Mount Monadnock to caring for our horses, cows, and ducks. The Monadnock region is home to some of the best outdoor recreation in New Hampshire -- dare I say New England?! --, offering a variety of adventures throughout the four seasons. Between boating, skiing, hiking, snowmobiling, and more, there is always something to do. If it is too cold outside, I’ll be in my kitchen cooking something yummy.
I could go on forever about how much I love New Hampshire and how much I love helping people, but to keep it short and sweet:
New Hampshire will always be my home & I am beyond excited to share it with you.
ETERNAL OPTIMIST. MOM. FRIEND. ADVENTURER. ENCOURAGER. REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONAL FOR LIFE.
I can't wait to meet you!
