    Here's a brief glimpse into where I am from, who I am, what I do, and why it pertains to YOU: I grew up in central Virginia then attended James Madison University. Upon graduation with my Bachelor of Science degree, I attended graduate school University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I attained my graduate degree in Environmental Sciences & Engineering.

    At this point, I guess you are wondering how did a science major end up in real estate? I do love the math and sciences. However, as a doctor's wife, we moved around a lot for my husband's training. After living in NC, SC, and PA, we returned to Virginia to settle in Fredericksburg with our three children. While I have never been a big fan of moving, I do so enjoy the house hunt and finding the right home for our family was very important to me. It was during that most recent home search for my family that I realized I would love helping other families through this process!

    A house may be walls and a roof but a home is about family no matter how big or small. It's personal and so much more. My goal is not just to be a real estate agent but to personally get to know you and the details that are important to you and to develop a trusted relationship that will help you find the house that is your home.

    So now as a real estate agent, I specialize in both buyer and seller representation, including first time home buyers, relocation, and new construction. I utilize skills I picked up from my science and research days and incorporate what I can to better serve my clients. For my clients, I utilize my research skills to provide you with an in-depth analysis of home values, the best pricing or negotiation strategies, and develop a marketing strategy using the latest technology for sellers.

    My attention to detail, dedication, and work ethic will guide you through the real estate buying and/or selling process! I look forward to helping you achieve your real estate goals!
