“Living the dream” is my motto in Steamboat. I want to share my love and knowledge for all that Steamboat has to offer in helping you find the perfect property! Four years ago after graduating from the University of Pennsylvania with a Masters in Psychology, I decided it was time to build a life in the mountains and moved out to Steamboat.  My main objective in life has always been to help others. I have always valued what makes individuals unique and helping you choose a home, allows me to share my love for Steamboat with you.

My family is originally from Virginia where I started my life off as a military brat. It took us being stationed in Colorado one time for us to fall in love with the mountains and find a way to move here permanently. I have spent most of my youth and adulthood under the shadow of Pikes Peak, America’s Mountain before following my dream of living in a mountain community. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve lived all over the U.S. and even spent a year in the Dominican Republic, but Colorado has always had my heart and called me home.

It was love at first sight! During the summer of 1992, I briefly spent an afternoon in Steamboat on my way up to Alaska. I instantly fell in love with the community, the landscape, the recreational activates, but most importantly the People. I knew then, this was going to be my future home. 24 years later I still can’t think of a better place to raise my family. As part of the marketing team, I bring my passion for photography and videography to work with me everyday. I enjoy bringing life to a home in both media and print.
