Personal Background

I was raised in a large family in a small town in the thumb area. After high school, I moved to Grand Rapids and got my Bachelor of Science degree from Aquinas College, and Interior Design from Kendall School of Art and Design. I met my husband of 30 years at Aquinas College. Through career opportunities, we made  several moves; first Columbia, South Carolina, then we moved to Holland, MI and Kalamazoo, MI. Finally we settled in East Grand Rapids, Mi and raised our three children here. My oldest son is a graduate of the University of Michigan and is currently living in sunny San Diego, my middle child is currently applying to graduate schools and my baby is a junior at the University of Michigan. As a family, we enjoy trips to San Diego, downhill skiing, biking, ice skating, cooking and walking the beautiful beaches of Lake Michigan.

Professional Background

Licensed realtor assisting buyers and sellers in the Grand Rapids Area since 2001. Prior to my real estate career, I worked 10 years in sales, marketing and design with Haworth, Steelcase and American Seating.

Personal Interests

I spend much of my free time with family and friends at the family's lake cottage. I enjoy long walks along the beautiful Lake Michigan Shoreline.
