Born into a military family, I spent the first 10 years of my life bouncing around Iowa, Texas and Germany before moving to Columbia in 1989 and finally putting down roots! I grew up in Forest Acres and went on to get my B.A. at the University of South Carolina in 2001. I bought my first home in Northeast Columbia in 2003 and moved to Blythewood in 2013, where I live with my husband, son and our black lab, Max. We are active members of Shandon Baptist Church and enjoy family adventures to the mountains to hike and chase waterfalls!
As an agent who has lived in the Columbia area for almost 30 years, I have a deep understanding of this community and its surrounding areas. Columbia and Blythewood are unique markets, and have so much to offer depending on your needs. Whether you are buying or selling, I understand that this is a huge decision that has lasting impact. While it is one of life’s most stressful events, working with the right agent can make the process fun and gratifying. You need someone you can trust for up-to-date information, and I hope that you will allow me the opportunity to serve you.
