Personal Bio
I first discovered Bend in 2009 and immediately fell in love, it felt like home. This past summer I moved to Bend with my wonderful family, my amazing husband, teenager daughter and son and our dog. My husband got a two month head start in Bend while I wrapped up my job, put our house in Scottsdale, Arizona on the market and packed up. I know the pressures of trying to coordinate the closings on the house you are selling and the house you are buying so you have a place to live and only have to unpack the moving truck once!

My work history is diverse but always centered around customer service, it’s kinda my thing! I was a sales associate in department stores, including Nieman Marcus in my early years. I moved onto the hospitality industry and worked for US Airways and as a concierge at the Hyatt Gainey Ranch in Scottsdale. I was able to use my problem solving and detective skills as an Identity Theft Resolution Specialist by helping victims of id theft clear their names. I have a passion for alternative medicine and my favorite job was working for a naturopathic physician for four years. I got some invaluable hands-on experience with homeopathy, herbology, natural remedies, iv therapy, and acupuncture. I believe in healthy balance between main stream and natural medicine.

I worked in the back office at Arizona Best Real Estate where I learned about the real estate industry and became familiar with real estate transactions. I am excited to be partnering with John Furrow and work with clients. His expertise was invaluable as our Fred Real Estate Agent in numerous ways. Not to mention, he is just an awesome individual! I look forward to assisting others in finding just the right house for them, so they can make their new house into a home.
