Your Northshore Real Estate Professional

When choosing a real estate agent to help you buy or sell your home, it is worthwhile to enlist the services of a professional Realtor® with excellent business, marketing and communication skills.

I have earned two LSU undergraduate degrees, one in Marketing and the other in Management Information Systems. My solid business background, diverse marketing skills and knowledge of the latest technology allow me to connect buyers and sellers and close transactions efficiently.

My professional career includes owning a web design and marketing firm that provides services to successful builders and real estate developers including TerraBella Village, a Traditional Neighborhood Development (TND) in Covington, Louisiana. I have also worked extensively with attorneys and other professionals in settings requiring the precise management of extremely complex information.

Sailing Adventure

And while I have earned a solid reputation for delivering expert services as a sales and marketing professional, many also know me because of my history as a licensed USCG Captain, ocean mariner, and adventurer. In 2004, my husband (an LSU law graduate and attorney) and I sold our offices, home and cars and set sail on an ocean-rated catamaran, living aboard for six years while covering over 19,000 nautical miles exploring the Bahamas, Eastern and Western Caribbean, and the northern coast of South America, including Venezuela and Colombia. You can read about our adventure aboard our sailboat Indigo Moon at our website www.indigomoon.us. Successfully undertaking such an adventure is but one more indication of my history of completing difficult and complex tasks.

Loving Life on the Northshore!

When our sailing adventure concluded, we sold our catamaran and purchased a home in Old Mandeville. It was not by accident that we chose to live in Mandeville. We have always loved everything about the Northshore and there is no other place in the world we wanted to call home. We can easily access the exceptional culture of New Orleans; a fabulous bike path and state park are next door; and, our “new” sailboat (a very old Catalina 30) floats happily within a mile of our home. No matter what day of the week, those perfect sunset sails, bicycle rides, or dinners in New Orleans are only minutes away from our quiet small-town community. It is a pleasure to share my excitement of living in such a wonderful community while directly assisting my clients in also making their dreams come true.
