Career Experience

I have a long history in this industry, which began in mortgage lending in the late 80’s when the rates were double digits.  I worked for 25 years in lending, both with clients and brokers in Sonoma, Marin and San Francisco counties. My experience encompasses a real estate sales, mortgage underwriting, loan origination and private trust deed management.    Most recently added in 2022, is Fresh Abodes, which is an interior redesign service here in Sonoma County, which at times, is combined with my work in real estate, especially when preparing a home for sale.


Originally from Southern California, my family moved us to Sonoma County in 1976  and I have been traveling between ever since.   I graduated from both Piner High School and Santa Rosa Junior College.  I spend time with family and friends as well as my two grandchildren, Harlow and Jace, who add a whole new dimension to my life.

As I have gotten older, I’ve realized that having a passionate connection to what I do has become integral to me, as I believe that our service to others, also allows us to really create amazing things all around, for everyone.

The best part of what I do are the relationships I form and really being able to help others through the transition that occurs when working in real estate.  This work has also allowed me to pursue my love of writing about home and design, as well as about the market, hoping to bring new perspectives through fresh and original content, ultimately inspiring others!

Live Your Best Life,


I believe that it in any service you provide to others, the most important thing is to give tremendous value and your absolute best, always.”
