"Being a resident of Vermont since 1980, I have lived in Chittenden and Franklin County, and currently have put down roots in Grand Isle County for the past decade. In doing so I have grown to love everything that this beautiful lakefront community has to offer. I enjoy the hometown feel of neighbors, friends, and family. Our summers are filled with pool days, beach days at Alburgh Dunes, farmers markets, and fun filled concert nights at Snow Farm Vineyard in South Hero.

I bring many years of experience in customer service to my Real Estate business. In my 24 years working in retail holding various positions and working my way up to supervisory roles. I gained valuable skills in communication, negotiation, and understanding the needs of the people I work with.
