Born in Whitefish and raised in Western Montana, I am a Native Montanan! I grew up in the small town of Eureka, north of Whitefish. I recall our community members would gather together to help each other, whether for celebration, crisis or just to help the senior citizens clean up their yards in the spring. I believe I picked up that sense of community and service, and it’s why I am so passionate about the services I provide to my clients. Helping buyers and sellers achieve their real estate dreams is at the heart of my work.


For over 30 years I have applied my accounting and finance background to business practices in the real estate industry. Representing buyers and sellers requires diverse skills and experiences, from finding the right lender or title company to finding the correct survey stakes and easement lines. My own personal experiences as a first-time home buyer, a “For Sale By Owner” seller, a business owner, investment property owner, property manager, and a small business consultant provide insights to assist my clients, my agents, and the agents with whom I work.


I am active in my community through our Northwest Montana REALTOR Association, the Columbia Falls Chamber of Commerce and as a 23+ year elected school board trustee for Columbia Falls Public Schools. I enjoy golf, gardening, relaxing at the lake or hibernating with a good movie or book. I have a wonderful husband, two successful daughters, two grandkids and a grand-puppy to spoil!


Western Montana offers a piece of heaven for everyone. My local knowledge and passion, balanced with years of experience, sets me apart from my colleagues and allows me to provide personalized service to my clients.
