What was your first job in the industry?
My parents are brokers. I grew up criss-crossing phone numbers and addresses from “for sale by owner” ads in the newspaper.
What experience would you repeat?
My wedding. ‘Twas a party. But also, I love having babies.
How did you get into real estate?
Born into it. Tried to deny it for years. I held a corporate job for 8 years in oil, but knew that my life wouldn’t fit that mold once we started adding to our family. I wanted to be available for my kids. I quit the oil gig and learned I was pregnant the same month.
Where do you predominately sell real estate?
Southwest Houston. Westbury, Meyerland, Willow Meadows, Breas Heights, Med Center, ect.
What do you love about the industry?
I love connecting with people and building these unique relationships that probably would have never happened had I been sitting at a desk in a different industry.
How do you distinguish yourself from the crowd of agents?
I want to work together on a personal level. Flooding! Let’s talk about it. I have flooded myself (multiple times) and know the trauma. I want to help navigate this somewhat controlled chaos with people.
Which Home Builders have you had a great experience working with in the last 12 months?
I like listening to Jay Shetty’s, “On Purpose.” It slows me down.
What lights you up in life?
My kids laughing so hard they can’t stop and no sound is even coming out anymore… My husband surfing. A good playlist during a hot yoga class. My dog running so fast she trips over herself. An old friend walking through our “always open” front door. A last minute gathering of all our people in our backyard grilling and talking about life while the kids go wild. Live music. An organized refrigerator.
Tell us an interesting detail about you that many might not know?
Oh goodness. I’m an over-sharer. There’s not much that people don’t know. If my kids aren’t in the car (sometimes when they are, also…) I’m listening to certifiably inappropriate rap or rock music.

Everlance to track my expenses and mileage.
