I got my first taste of real estate in Paris, France where I grew up. After graduating from boarding school with my International Baccalaureate, I worked with IBM Europe as a Relocation Coordinator. I learned firsthand all the complexities and details it takes in coordinating an international move.
Two years later, I decided to come back to America and continue my education at Samford University and graduated from UAB with a degree in Marketing. During my college career, I worked with Johnson-Rast and Hays in their marketing department, which furthered my real estate knowledge. After graduating and working with Harbert International here in town, I realized that real estate was my true calling.
Around that time, Jim Lawrence had just launched his fledgling company, LAH, and I joined them in 1993 as one of their original agents. I was inspired by a company that put ethics above profit and emphasized that treating people right is always a #1 priority. I continue to put my clients’ interests above my own and because of this, I have many repeat clients who also recommend me to their friends and family. This is the highest honor I can receive.
As a full-time working mom to a daughter in college who I adopted internationally as a baby, I have become an expert at juggling a lot of responsibilities and I am good at organization and details.
We have two cats that we rescued from an ice storm who make us laugh every day. I enjoy reading, cooking, and spending time with my daughter.
