About me

I am a Realtor for Barrington Group Real Estate located on Mainstreet. I live in the Canterberry community and I have a husband that I've been married to for 16 1/2 years, two kids, Emma, who is 16, and Sean, who is 12, and my good old dog Brady who is 13 1/2. I worked for Mango Mortgage on Mainstreet prior to that. I've lived in Colorado for 10 years and spent collectively 18 years in the mortgage and real estate industry.

Part of the community

My kids obviously have grown up and went to schools here. I, personally, love to do things within the community as well. I won the Chili Cookoff award with my brother-in-law, Michael. I volunteer with the Downtown Business Alliance. I'm currently running a coat drive for Coats for Colorado and trying to get 200 coats. Right now, I'm at about 75 with three more weeks to go. Being able to help out is super important to me. It allows me to familiarize myself with different areas of the community, whether it's the schools, the small business owners — just in general, it allows me to get to know more people.

My secret passion

I'm a little bit of a home project lover. I'm pretty methodic when it comes to home projects. When we finished our basement, I started out doing the normal thing (getting quotes, hiring contractors) then said forget that, I'm doing it myself. I managed the whole project myself to a point it was exactly what I wanted and the end result was perfect. I have no experience of being a general contractor — but everything went off without a hitch and it set the stage how I've done everything in my house the last five years. I'm not afraid to fix things myself or figure things out myself. I enjoy the challenge. I'm not afraid to call a professional. But it's something I'm not afraid to do — I'll pick up a hammer or cordless drill and figure it out. I want to be somebody who fixes up houses in the future.

What inspires me

Truly setting a good example for my children because it's important for me for them to be good members of the community with a good head on their shoulders. It's so much better just to walk through life in positivity and kindness. To me, raising two kids is about more than just raising them. It's teaching them to be good people — to treat other people kindly.

I have a lot to live for. I have an amazing husband and great kids. Every single day, especially as a business owner, I have different unique sets of challenges that I have to accomplish every single day. It's that balancing of the family, business, volunteering — all of that keeps me on my toes, and it keeps being interesting every day.
