About Me 

Since 2008, I've been practicing real estate in Paradise Valley and Scottsdale, Arizona.


In 2009, I gained my license in Texas (210 hours), and in 2010, I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin where I was named a College Scholar with a B.A. in English and an advanced certificate from the McCombs School of Business, I also minored in German Language Studies.


I've owned two small businesses outside of my real estate career, one specializing in residential salt water aquarium installations and maintenance, and another in professional writing and editing. Currently, I'm a partner at a local interior design firm, and have a great deal of passion for design, fashion, pop culture and art.


I believe your home is a reflection of your interests and who you are, and the primary joy I get in selling real estate revolves around that notion; I get to help you find the canvas where you'll live your life. In 2016, I started a team at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage called HōM | Distinct Properties. At the start of 2019, I was honored with an invitation to join Launch Real Estate; a boutique firm, located in Scottsdale, which specializes in luxury sales and dominates the luxury market with the greatest collection of sales talent in The Valley. I accepted and have since had the best sales YTD of my career.

 Special Skills 

I grew up splitting time between Paradise Valley and a farm in Texas. Living and working on a farm, I had to embrace a certain penchant for resourceful problem solving. The way that's translated to my real estate business is often finding myself taking care of the things which need immediate attention, being very hands-on, rather than waiting for a workman to do the job. I'm very particular for showings, and even cary around my own leaf blower to make sure I set the scene as best I can for a buyer.
