A little about me

and why I love real estate

After proudly serving as a Captain & UH-60 Blackhawk pilot in the U.S. Army from 1984-92, I changed careers to become a real estate agent and haven't looked back since!  During my 29+ year real estate career, I have served at all levels from sales associate, branch manager, team leader, corporate broker, general manager to franchise development and business coach.   I am a licensed REALTOR in both Nevada (where I co-lead a team of Realtors) and Florida.  

After 28 years in Las Vegas, I moved to the north Tampa area to be closer to my family and to build a second real estate team. I am the oldest of five children and have a sister in Wesley Chapel, FL and 3 siblings in Georgia.  I am a graduate of the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!) and happy to be back in the southeast again!

My true passion is to empower and educate others to discover their potential and reach their dreams and goals.  To that end,  I decided to go back into working directly with buyer and seller clients and put my extensive experience and knowledge of real estate sales, marketing and negotiation to work for those clients. Together with my team of real estate local area experts, we are here to serve all of your real estate needs

I co-founded Wandering But Not Lost (WBNL) Coaching in 2015, which is a real estate training and coaching company specializing in working with agent teams and brokers. I am the author or co-author of numerous real estate continuing education classes and online training programsI also co-host the weekly Wandering But Not Lost Podcast: Where Real Estate and Reality Meet with my business partner Matt Emerson. 

When I'm not working with clients, creating content or recording a video... I enjoy spending time with my family, getting up and getting outside to hike, bike, go to the beach or visit a local, state or national park!

Don't hesitate to call, text or email me with your questions or to chat about your real estate goals and dreams.

I look forward to connecting with you!
