About Me

I was born in Wisconsin and lived my high school and college years in Kentucky. Since getting married 22+ years ago, my active-duty husband and I have moved all over the country. We moved to O'Fallon in 2015, and while the adventures have been amazing, we are excited to settle here in Illinois and put down roots. We felt like we were welcomed into this community faster than in any other place we have lived. It is the small-town feel with all the benefits of a larger city. The people of the area genuinely made us feel at home.
Sometimes I feel like I didn't choose real estate - real estate chose me. My love for homes began with my Dad. He was a draftsman who designed and built both of our family homes. I would watch him design houses and listen to him talk about where things would go and what the symbols meant. I was fascinated! Riding on the bus as a kid, I would point out houses and say, 'My Dad designed that house.' Now, I'm the mom driving around and saying, 'I sold that house.'
Another reason I chose real estate six years ago is that it offered flexibility for my family life and volunteer work and a thorough understanding of how hard it can be to relocate, whether across the street or the country. Seeing the 'ah ha' moments when they find THE house or knowing they are moving on to the next place with a sense of completion after selling their current home. Being a part of that momentous moment is special.
My clients are the best, and I'm grateful for their trust and help in growing my business by referring me to their friends and family. My experience as a military spouse prepared me to serve others uniquely throughout O'Fallon, Belleville, Fairview Heights, Swansea, Mascoutah, Columbia, and Collinsville.
I am thankful for my family. They are my joy. They have supported me as my real estate business has grown. My high school sweetheart and I share three grown children. My son followed in his Dad's example, serving in the military. And my twin daughters are excelling at SWIC. When I'm not volunteering in the Scott Spouses Club, church, or BSA Troop 94, you can find me at the bowling alley, quilting, or finding a great place for photography. I also love reading, painting with watercolors, and doing yoga.
