Originally from Ohio and a graduate of Miami University and Case Western Reserve, I first came to Maine as a college student working a summer job at a lobster pound. Twenty years later after moving to Falmouth, my husband and I quickly learned the joys of our home overflowing with summer guests and children who never tire of blueberry picking, hiking the trails of the White Mountains, and exploring our many gorgeous beaches.

My professional career transitioned from being a successful consultant for a big-five firm, to passionate involvement with Maine real estate. I am especially knowledgeable about both commercial and residential properties, energy efficient design, and renovations. Over the years I have developed an extensive network of relationships with bankers, architects, builders, interior designers, landscapers and especially other brokers. All of these resources I make available to my customers as they navigate the sale or purchase of unique properties. 

My customers receive extraordinary service whether they are purchasing or listing a condo, cottage, traditional home, or Inn. When you list your property with me, I identify and target the right buyers by featuring the unique qualities that grab the buyer’s attention. I make your home stand out among the others – and dedicate myself to getting the best contract for you. When you are searching for a property, I explore not only the current listings, but also the opportunities with private sales and new construction. I am Efficiency Maine certified and a member of the Maine Inn Brokerage Team. I am also a member of the Mercy Hospital Board of Trustees, member of the Falmouth Economic Development Commission, and Falmouth Board of Assessment Review.
