My professional background started at a early age. My father moved my family, from Romulus, Michigan when I was seven years old. He established Yankee Boy Restuarant in South Boardman in 1968, and continued throughtout the next 35-40 years building, starting, and running any business's that reside in Kalkaska today.
Like I said; my career in sales started at a young age, because of the influence of my father. I remember there were many Saturaday's I would jump in the car with my father, and he would make his runs to check out store from's anywhere from Newberry, Mich. to Reed City, Mich. He would grab a package of bologne, loaf of bread, a bag of chips, and a few pops, and off we would go. A lot of the time it was just me, and him.
As I reached my teen years I worked at Big Yank Restuarant though my high school years, until I married in 1979, about a year later, I became the mother of twins, so I found my self at home, until the loss of my daughter Heather, she was 11 months old, and passed away with SIDS. or so called (crib death)
Over the years, I have worked in sales, everything from furniture, appliances, selling used cars, and even had my own cleaning company for 14 years.
In 2004 I started in the housing business with Kalkaska Housing, Greenway Investments, and received my Real Estate license in 2008......Just in time for the housing crash to take a dump.....Three years later, here I am, back into the market....It may not be the best market, however it is a productive market....and Real Estate is selling..
My passion is people...helping, guiding, listening to people...turning bad situations around for the good...so if you are in a bad situation, never give up, and if I can help you, I would be glad to help in anyway that I can.
The rainbow is around the corner!!!

We have all the snowmobile trails anyone can ask for, not counting the ski resorts, golf courses, wineries and the casio's, within arms length.Northern Michigan is truly beautiful, and tons of things to do!!!
