I have a strong background in business. I owned a general lines insurance brokerage for twenty-five years while also working in residential real estate for over 30 years (being Broker/Owner for 20 of those years). I also have experience in commercial real estate investment and property ownership. I have successfully run service-based businesses that focus on the needs of our clients. I love working with people, and getting to know and serve them by finding ways to make their lives better. In my free time I love to fish and garden.
Having had five children in seven years, I was a busy stay-at-home mom while our children were young. During this time I had many opportunities to serve in my community and church. Through this I gained extensive experience in organizing and supervising events. I have leadership experience in women’s organizations which allowed me to assist with numerous community service projects while making many friends along the way. I love to find ways to help and serve others. Family is my key focus and spending time with children and grandchildren is the highlight of my life. I love to travel and explore new places.
