Born on the East Coast in Norfolk, Virginia I grew up working on charter fishing boats. I love animals, especially dogs, I'm always ready to dive, hike, or swim.
In December, 1995, with my husband-to-be, I attended the Diver's Academy of the Eastern Seaboard in New Jersey and became a certified commercial diver. It was a true adventure, diving through ice, underwater welding, and learning to operate decompression chambers. In the summer of 1996 we moved to New Orleans, where we worked in the Gulf of Mexico for several years and I headed Logistics Supply for a government contractor. Seven Mardi Gras' later, and ready for change, we visited Hawaii with my husband's parents. We fell in love with the Aloha spirit and the 'Aina and knew it was the place for us. We spent the next year planning and saving, returned to Hawaii in 2002 and purchased a home. In 2003 we moved over for good and I helped my husband begin growing his nursery business of exotic plants and bamboo and we hope to do certified organic produce.
Real estate had always been an interest of mine and I obtained my real estate license 2004, my Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR) designation in June 2006. In 2007, I obtained my broker's license and worked as a backup Broker in Charge. At the end of January 2009, I joined Clark Realty Corporation.
I love helping people obtain their dreams, educating them on all aspects of real estate and sharing the Hawaii experience. I am happy to assist first time Buyers or long time investors. Real estate has become a passion to me and I am thankful I get to practice it in such a beautiful and loving place as Hawaii.
