Where did you grow up?
I spent most of my youth in Anne Arundel County Maryland, outside of Annapolis.
Have you lived anywhere else other than the Eastern Shore? If so, where?
I lived near Frederick, Maryland where my husband Blaine and I raised our two children Cameron and Payton.
Have you traveled a lot? Where are some of the places you have been?
I love to travel! Jackson Hole, WY, Scottsdale AZ, are among my favorite places in the US! Internationally Switzerland and Austria Alps were spectacular to visit. Many Caribbean Islands and most beaches on the east coast and parts of the Gulf Coast.
In what year did you begin your career in real estate?
I became fully licensed in 2023!
What do you enjoy most about being a real estate agent (or your job)?
I love connecting with people daily! People’s stories are fascinating to me. To help a family find that perfect space where memories can be made, and future stories can be written makes being an agent a dream job for me.
EASTERN SHORE CONNECTION
Why did you settle on the Eastern Shore?
I have owned property on the Shore since 2011, and there was never a question that my family would live here full-time one day. The access to endless activities here makes the Shore a perfect forever home!
Do you prefer the seaside or bayside of the Eastern Shore? Why?
Both the seaside and bayside offer such uniqueness to explore. However, most of my activities are on the bayside enjoying the miles of pristine beaches, boating, and fishing the creeks, or playing some golf at the Bay Creek Golf Course.
Beach or boat – if you had to pick one, which would it be and why?
Both! Here on the shore, you can have it all!
How long have you lived in your current home?
How do you relax after a hard day of work?
Relaxing for me is spending time with my family laughing and catching up over a nice meal at home or at one of the local restaurants. We also enjoy playing cards and listening to music, together.
Where do you usually go (or what do you do) when you have time off?
I love to take bike rides throughout the Preserve trails in Bay Creek as well as the town of Cape Charles. I also enjoy spending some quality time with my husband either golfing or sitting at the beach watching the beautiful sunset over the Chesapeake Bay.
