Welcome to my Website

Hello, and thank you for visiting my web site. I encourage you to further explore my website so that you can gain an understanding of who I am and how I can help you either sell your home or achieve the "American Dream" of Home Ownership.

My business philosophy is simple: customer service. To me, that boils down to honesty, integrity and character. I find that these three simple words say it all for who we are inside!

Professional Background

I am a licensed Realtor in the state of Michigan. What this means to you is that I am able to show you ANY home, regardless of who has it for sale, this does include For Sale By Owners and Rentals.

Prior to working in the Real Estate market I worked as an Administrative Assistant at a car dealership. I left there after having my first beautiful daughter 5 years ago and proceeded to work in the medical field which during this time had my 2nd beautiful daughter when I decided working nights just wasn’t for me as a mother of two young children. I then proceeded to work for a towing and service company for the past 2 years and have since left to be able to help out more families looking for a home as myself and my husband did 10 years ago and be able to spend more time with my well deserving family.

Professional Interests

My professional interest is to be able to work with as many individuals to find their perfect home or vacation spot. It isn't always an easy process, but I will work very hard to find you what you are looking for.

Personal Background

I have been married to my husband since 2006 and have had 2 beautiful daughters. We currently reside in Howard City, MI and have lived here since 2002. We farm and own a residential framing business that my husband and I have just acquired recently. We have two wonderful dogs that love to play with us on the boat and in the woods.

I was born in Grand Rapids and lived in Sparta, MI until I was 2 years old when I moved to Rockford, MI. I lived in Rockford the rest of my childhood and teen years till I purchased my first house in Howard City. I attended Cedar Springs schools and Grand Rapids Community College.


I am a graduate of Cedar Springs High School in 2000.

I have some college credits from Grand Rapids Community College.

I am certified in Microsoft office products.

I have graduated from the U.S. Brokers Institute.

Personal Interests

My personal interests are spending time with my family out on the lake or in the woods, reading a good book, sewing, hunting, fishing, and baking.


I am currently not specialized in any form of Real Estate but feel that I am well versed in all specialties of it.

Community Involvement

CPR Certified


Vacant Land

I believe that vacant land is a great way to start either with it being for an investment property or for recreational use.  I personally have 40 acres that I use for hunting and for farming and eventually for my personal residence.
