Professional Background

I have worked in management, customer service and sales for the past 20+ years. Prior to coming into Real Estate, I worked at a health club, working as a department manager. Overlapping my employment at the health club, I spent several years working for Readers Digest assisting in fundraising activities calling on public, private and charter schools. I initially started out managing a small specialty store in which I was the manger and buyer. Between these jobs, I have obtained skills in management, customer service, sales, human resources, child development, buying, selling, marketing and other viable assets.  All these experiences have provided me with a great skill set in the Real Estate industry.

Personal Background

I have lived in the Midwest all of my life. Originally from the Holland/Zeeland area, I moved to Grand Rapids upon completion of my schooling. For the past 30+  years, I have resided in East Grand Rapids raising my three children with husband, Andy and continually enjoying all that the Greater Grand Rapids area has to offer.

Prior to becoming a Realtor, I worked in the health club industry for 20 years as a department head, spent several years working with Readers Digest doing fund raising activities for schools, and managed and purchased for a specialty sporting goods store. In 2014, the health club closed, which created an opportunity for a "fresh" beginning. After a few months of pondering of what I'd miss most, I decided it was customer service. With that, my new adventure began as a Real Estate agent. What I've obtained from these opportunities, are skills in management, customer service, sales, human resources, child development, buying, selling, marketing and other viable assets; all in which I will put to work for you.

My philosophy is to work for YOU with honesty, integrity and professionalism.
