Born and raised in the Midwest, my husband Vince and I enjoyed 6 years as Southern California residents before moving to beautiful Northern Virginia in 1991. Before engaging in the real estate industry, I was a System Engineer and certified Project Management Professional (PMP) serving the US Intelligence and Defense agencies. This has proved to be a great background for facilitating real estate transactions, as each home purchase and sale is a project requiring oversight, monitoring of deadlines and milestones and stakeholder management. I am a Home Staging Professional Realtor Accredited by StagedHomes.com. I enjoy the creativity and satisfaction of helping home sellers prepare their properties to ensure the home sells for the best price possible. I’ve also earned the Seller Representative Specialist designation from the Real Estate Business Institute (REBI). Continuing my ongoing education enables me to stay current on industry trends and provide the best value possible to my clients. I’m also actively engaged as a member of the Dulles Regional Chamber of Commerce member and an ongoing supporter of the Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation.
