I was born and raised in Winchester, Virginia. After graduating from Shepherd University with an accounting degree I settled in Frederick, Maryland and immediately went to work for a prominent DC real estate developer. My career with the company lasted nearly 29 years. I held various positions in the accounting group ending my tenure as the Controller of Real Estate Portfolio and Fund Accounting. My favorite part of my job was being exposed to sales, acquisitions and construction of properties from the financial perspective. I continue to practice accounting in the real estate development industry.
During that same time my greatest joy and purpose in life was raising my children, a son Joey and a daughter Jillian. I served as a girl scout leader for 6 years and a “big sister” with the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization for 3 years.
When I began dating my husband he introduced me to the Colonial Beach area where he owns a home. I loved coming to his house on the weekends to enjoy the local venues. I made many good friends and found a common desire to participate in community growth and home renovations in the area. I recently purchased a “fixer upper” I believe has great potential and hope it’s the first of many such homes for me. Once renovated this home will serve as a vacation rental.
My husband Scott is an accountant too who owns and manages a residential property management business in Charles County, MD. In our spare time besides enjoying our children, we love to cook, watch HGTV, discover great restaurants, wander around small towns and of course do home improvement projects.
Home sales and home renovation feel like a natural progression for me. I have always had an interest in real estate, design and construction. When I see an old or neglected home I am struck with a vision of what it could be. I look forward to helping my clients find the perfect home or weekend get-away in Colonial Beach.
