More About Me

I Love Where I Live

When my husband Marty and I were looking for a new place to live, during a life transition…we searched many areas of the country. I couldn't put into words what we were looking for exactly.

However, looking back, I now know what we were searching for; we had set out to find the best place to raise our newborn son. A small, rural community with deep roots in the land, surrounded by saltwater with a vibrant community and a dynamic downtown. We needed it to be diverse and welcoming, with many places to gather for eating, drinking and good conversation. We wanted a first rate movie theatre and a place with an appreciation for arts and culture. Sound familiar? How absolutely fortunate we were to stumble upon Port Townsend!


Originally from Southern California and having owned two successful restaurants, starting my first at age 24. When I moved to Port Townsend I began my real estate career with Windermere Port Townsend in 1993 and bought the brokerage in 2005. 

My work ethic developed early in life, working with my parents in our family grocery store.

I love my job and my clients. There is nothing better when clients are happy with the results of my efforts. I have consistently been one of the top 3 agents in our county for over 23 years.

I help my clients with everything from undeveloped land to commercial property. Living in a small community that is quirky, my 25 years experience allows me to service my clients well.

I love my work; I enjoy finding just the right place for my buyers or helping my sellers go through their own life transition and selling one of their most valuable assets.

I communicate well with my clients keeping them aware of the buying or selling process. I enjoy finding solutions to any issue that may arise.

Committed to Port Townsend and Jefferson County

I believe in giving back to my community!

I have been involved in both Jefferson County and Port Townsend local government and have served and continue to serve on the board of many non-profits.
