Helping you find the perfect home is the most rewarding part of being a Realtor!

 Thank you for visiting my website! 

Here is a little gimpse into my life.  I moved to Rapid City in 1978 to attend National College of Business.  After graduating and living here for a number of years, I ventured to Arizona where I worked for a commercial property leasing company and commercial developer.  That is when my interest in real estate and construction began.  From there I ventured into sales of carpet and window treatments.  Leaving Arizona in 1994, I moved to Moab, Utah to enjoy small town living and leave the hectic city life for a while.  In Moab I was lucky enough to be offered the position of the Executive Director of the Chamber of Commerce. With this position came my passion for community involvement and economic development.

My husband and I met in Moab, married, and had our first child.  We then felt it was time to move closer to family and headed for South Carolina.  After a short time, we both realized that the east coast was not for us and in 1999 we made the decision to return to “semi” small town life to raise our children and we returned to Rapid City.  You could say “the hills were calling”.  Shortly after moving to Rapid City, I became employed by the City of Rapid City in the Planning Department and Public Works Department. For 8 years I enjoyed the people I worked with and all the knowledge I gained about how city government works, but sales and independence were calling my name! 

I became a licensed Realtor in the summer of 2009 – not a great time to get in the business!  Since then time has flown and this is the career I was meant to do.  Every day I look forward to meeting new people, taking on new challenges, and learning more about this industry.  Recently I was elected to the Black Hills Board of Realtors, and I am looking forward to serving my fellow Realtors.

 This is what I will be doing for the rest of my life!  I would be honored to call you a friend as well as a client!
