Real Estate Agent
I graduated from Winter Haven Highschool and moved to Lakeland in 1993 to attend Southeastern University. During my college years I worked at JCPenney and, after graduation, I was selected for the management trainee program and was promoted to department manager in 1999. After a brief period in the Naples/Fort Myers area, I returned to Polk County and accepted a position in the Financial Aid Department at Southeastern University. These jobs, in addition to my time doing phone sales and account management with the dog training company, fostered my love for people and further refined my customer service skills. My first job was in retail, selling shoes at a full-service, free-standing shoe store in which I had the privilege to listen to what people needed and wanted. Listening, relating and problem-solving are skills I utilize every day as a real estate agent. What matters most when it comes to selling or buying a home is YOU; what YOU need; what YOU want and the plan that will get YOU there. Working with my husband, Vince, is a privilege and natural fit for us because we have worked alongside one another for so many years. We each bring our strengths to each transaction, be it selling or buying. In addition to helping YOU buy your home or sell your house, I also enjoy the challenge of homeschooling our children. When I am not doing either of those, I love spending time with my family outside hiking, fishing or camping as well as reading.
