Following in my daddy's footsteps, watching and assisting him in his real estate career for over 30 years, if I learned one thing, it's that "it's never about who I am. . . what I have done in the past. . . or what I can do now. It is, however, all about the needs and wants of my clients." Buying a home is both exciting and stressful at the same time. My job is to help you enjoy the experience of your search. I became a licensed Realtor in Tennessee the first time in 2005. Before long, I had become a licensed ADT home security agent for both residential and commercial clients. Since 1989 I have been a court stenographer and a licensed bail bonding agent in the Northern Virginia, Knoxville and surrounding areas. I know this area well after 17 years.
    In 2005, my family and I left the Northern Virginia area and headed for East Tennessee. My husband and I have 5 children and 11 grandchildren who are spread out from Northern Virginia to Western Oklahoma. My husband was a long-time dairy farmer in Nokesville, VA on the family farm which was
    established over 200 years ago. My husband operated the water plant and retired from First Utility District in Farragut in 2020. The last two of our five children graduated from high school in Knoxville, TN. Maxey, my youngest, will graduate with her MBA from TN Tech in May 2022. My hobbies have always been cooking, baking and sewing. With 5 children, those are more of a necessity than a hobby but I enjoy them all. As a pastry chef and master baker, I was honored to participate in preparing the daily pastries for the 2005 President's Cup in Manassas, VA.
