My broad life experiences along with traveling and living in different, amazing parts of the world have led me to where I am today. I was born and raised in the UK, where I started my real estate career and discovered my love for this industry. Upon leaving England’s equivalent of high school, I went straight to work in a real estate office. Although the UK follows a very different structure and set of procedures, the fundamentals are the same…pairing buyers with their dream homes or providing sellers with the best services and tools to sell theirs – whatever the reason. This is what I love about real estate, meeting new people and finding the best and right real estate solutions for them. Following this, I went on to serve in the British Royal Air Force for 5 years, which, after 2 tours of duty in Afghanistan, ultimately brought me to the US. Being a veteran (and a veteran spouse) has allowed me to work alongside a variety of people from all walks of life – a gift and skill I am so lucky to have gained. Virginia has been my home since 2017, and home to my husband for his entire life. We know and love the area, and love raising our family here. I understand the pressures of relocating (both in the US and internationally) so I strive to help others alleviate some of the stress involved in these huge decisions and transitions. I trained and worked for a top local realtor, here in VA, as a licensed assistant for 4 years. During this time, I achieved my realtor license (in 2018) and continued to build on my existing knowledge, whilst working on all aspects of the buying and selling process with clients. My passion just grew further as I worked on learning and adapting to the real estate procedures in Virginia. Having a young family means I am always on the go, but I strive to maintain the most positive outlook on life and in everything I do. I love going to the gym and being outdoors, hiking up a mountain, walking trails with my children to hunt for geocaches, or just being near the water. That is what calms me. Finding things in life that make you feel good is key to my life. I am excited to bring this, along with integrity and passion, into my clients’ real estate journeys!
