I am an island girl at heart...with a charmed youth. Though born and raised in Hilo, when I was 5 years old our family moved to the Solomon Islands. While there, we explored as much of the South Pacific as we could. What a way to grow up: sailing around desolate islands, shelling on beaches, running barefoot through the villages and soaking up the culture of both the locals and resident expatriates. After moving back to Hawaii, we lived on the ocean in Kapoho Bay for many years, yet again blessed to be able to enjoy such a magical spot.
Later, while away for school at Mid Pacific Institute in Honolulu, the urge to explore led me to a foreign exchange program with AFS to Europe where I lived for a year with a French family in Niort, France. What a challenge--I was completely immersed into the language and culture. Consequently, I became fluent in French...and would forever be a Francophile! I returned to graduate from high school in Hawaii but continued to migrate back to France at any given opportunity, even attending a year of college in Paris.
Upon my return to Hilo, I pursued a career in real estate sales. After 20+ years in the business, I still get immense enjoyment from what I do--the wonderful people, the unique properties and the rewarding happy endings. I always strive to provide the most professional service and to offer as much education and information to my clients as possible.
Aside from my career, I have a wonderful son. He is my inspiration...to enjoy his youth, to be a good example for him and to, hopefully, send him off into his future as a terrific human being. Our family passions are traveling, entertaining, great food and home projects.
Our life here in Hawaii is blessed with beautiful natural surroundings, a wonderful climate, a safe community and diverse cultural influences. We love it. And I would be happy to share it all with you. I look forward to meeting you and helping you with any of your real estate needs.
