I was born and raised in Idaho with an agriculture and outdoor activities lifestyle. In my early 20’s I moved to Los Angeles and enjoyed several years of living in California, however my love for Idaho brought me back. I have spent the last 20 years working in the real estate industry, including title, escrow, property management and being a licensed real estate agent for 18 years. My passion for real estate, people and this valley makes my profession as a realtor a true pleasure.

Community, people and giving back... I love to do this and it’s so important. I own a distribution company that makes yearly donations to local food banks. I volunteer for organizations that help families in need and I’m a regular volunteer for the Blaine County School District. Through the Rotary program I have been a host parent for foreign exchange students and have enjoyed getting to know kids from all over the world. I am active in the Blaine County 4-H group by volunteering and sponsoring some of the local youth. I own a coffee shop located at the gateway to the Sun Valley area which donates proceeds to the local library. My most recent adventure is getting back into the life of ranching and recently purchased a ranch to increase our new and growing cattle business. I am so fortunate to have a wonderful husband and four amazing children that I enjoy spending time with doing our favorite activities such as fishing, camping, hiking, golfing and skiing in the Sun Valley area.

I am a professional, knowledgeable and diverse individual that works hard for clients. Meeting the satisfaction of one’s real estate needs is a top priority and it’s my goal to achieve this with a high level of integrity.
