I received my B.A. from Louisiana State University in 1990. In November of 1990, I obtained my real estate salesperson license followed by my real estate broker's license in 1997. Over the 27 years that I've been involved in the real estate industry, I have received advanced training in relocation and corporate properties as well as obtaining my GRI in 1998. I am currently an associate broker and co-owner of Century 21 Bessette Realty, Inc. I manage our property management division as well as train and mentor our new agents.As a lifelong resident of Southwest Louisiana, I have a vast knowledge of the local real estate market and have remained involved in my community. I have served on various committees for the Southwest Louisiana Association of Realtors and have served on the board and executive committee for the Southwest Louisiana Economic Development Alliance. I am currently the Chair elect for the Alliance and will begin my tenure as Chair in January of 2018.
