Prior to starting my Real Estate career, I started my professional career as a Paralegal in a private law firm which included real estate, probate and corporate law. I then transitioned into corporate employment as inside sales and purchasing agents for two manufacturing companies. After my first move to Florida, I started a telephone answering and secretarial service, which I later sold. All of these experiences have lead me to my present career in real estate, contributed to my attention to detail in the transaction and my commitment to exceptional customer service.
Through the past years I have also enjoyed volunteering at my children’s school activities, including six years as my daughter’s Girl Scout Leader.
