My passion for real estate began in graduate school at Virginia Tech when I purchased my first fixer-upper and fell in love with DIY home renovation projects. After graduation, I moved to the Shenandoah Valley because of Harrisonburg’s active cycling community, vibrant downtown culture, and plentiful outdoor recreation. I now live in downtown Harrisonburg within biking distance of my favorite restaurants and work. I had solar panels installed on my home in 2015 and am excited to be a part of the Harrisonburg Solar Co-op.
I now specialize in a wide variety of real estate specialties, from first-time buyers to seasoned sellers and investors. As a former client wrote, “no matter what happened, she never gave up on us. She was always willing to help us find a home that was suitable to us.”
In addition to selling traditional family homes, I run a small LLC that renovates fixer-uppers into lovable homes and rentals. My background in renovations can help you visualize the hidden potential in a foreclosure. Investors can tap into my experiences as a landlord. And with two degrees in forestry and environmental conservation, I can help you find your own cabin in the woods or countryside retreat.
When not helping friends and neighbors house-hunt, I am either playing outdoor sports or volunteering with community projects. I am an avid mountain biker and also enjoy rock climbing, canoeing, and skiing. I sit on the board of the Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition, Harrisonburg Parks and Recreation Commission, and Harrisonburg Environmental Performance Standards Commission. I also volunteer with the Harrisonburg-Rockingham Association of Realtors and in the Harrisonburg Chamber of Commerce Leadership (BOLD) Program. You may recognize me as the coordinator of Bikes For Refugees, an alternative transportation partnership for Refugee Resettlement.
