I grew up in St. Johnsville, a small town in Montgomery County, New York, with a population of approximately 2,600 people.
While going to high school, I worked on a farm, at a feed store and did some building/construction work.
Approximately 30 years ago, I moved to Rotterdam, got married and got a job as a truck driver. I got my tractor trailer license and joined the big rig drivers.
My wife and I enjoy traveling and camping. We have traveled from Maine to Alaska with our two cats, Roxy and Libby, and will continue to explore this beautiful country.
After 30+ years of truck driving, I decided that it was time for a change. I got a job with a plumbing and heating company, where I had to learn all of the unlimited plumbing and heating parts and equipment.
As an added challenge, I decided to study for and get my real estate license.
I would be happy to work with you to find a new home, sell your current home, or both.

I first learned about the real estate business from my dad, who was a realtor and appraiser for many years. I remember thinking that real estate is an honorable profession and one that rewarded hard work. My dad was a person of honesty and integrity, and I associated his success with his commitment to those ideals. I was an extremely proud daughter!
I never thought I would go into the real estate business, as my interests lie in music and gemology; I have also been a teacher. However, I' m happy to engage in a profession in which there is opportunity to serve my community and be active in supporting property rights.
In order to try to understand different aspects of the housing industry, I recently took and passed a(n) MLO (Mortgage Loan Originator) course. I will take both the national and state exams this summer (2012). That is also a very interesting and challenging field, and I hope my studies in the mortgage field will help me be a better realtor.
