I was born in Texas and am fluent in both English and Spanish. I came to Hawai’i when I was 18 and attended Hawai’i Pacific University where I earned a degree in business administration. Prior to entering real estate, I held prominent retail and management positions including as an auditor and retail manager for the U.S. military, overseeing $140 million in sales with over 200 employees, as well as the V.P. and General Manager of a resort company, overseeing 11 retail stores throughout the Hawaiian Islands, and managing commercial real estate on Lahaina’s famed Front Street. I am a respected leader in the Maui real estate community. I have worked with clients from all over the world throughout my 30+ years selling both commercial and residential real estate throughout the Hawaiian Islands. My honesty and keen focus on details are just two of the reasons that my past clients not only return to buy second and third homes, but also refer me to their colleagues and friends.
I am active in the Maui community, dedicating time to several non-profit organizations including the Maui Food Bank, Hope Chapel, and Basketball Maui, which brings basketball instruction and character development to at-risk youth. A beloved “auntie” to children throughout South Maui, I am trained as a family educator, counseling families on healthy communication and interaction. I have been a member of several committees for the Realtors Association of Maui over the years and am currently a member of the Public Relations and Presidential Scholarship committees.
I enjoy the Maui lifestyle and the Aloha spirit that has made Maui my home. I enjoy spending time in the ocean, pilates, and spending time with extended family and friends. I also enjoy SCUBA diving, shopping and traveling throughout the world, with my travels taking me from Australia, Tahiti, and Guam to Switzerland, Italy, France, and Luxembourg.
