I was born and raised in MO, a farm kid. We came to Colorado in 1986. I graduated from Grand Valley High School, and have lived in Parachute since. I have a background in restaurants, I have built, bought, and sold many restaurants over the last 30 years. I have a wonderful husband and have raised 2 handsome boys, 4 wonderful stepchildren and have some absolutely beautiful grandchildren. I have always been involved in many community activities, boards, and I am a huge proponent in the community of growth, beautification, and tourism . I am now actively serving on the Education Foundation Board, and President of the Grand Valley Parks Association Board. I knew that I didn't want to do restaurants all my life, and have known my mentor, Amy Perrin for over 20 years, and she is such a dynamo, I decided that I really wanted to do Real Estate, so she encouraged me to follow my dreams. I absolutely love to cook and have huge family gatherings. I also love to go back to the Ozarks, on Table Rock Lake, where my folks retired, and fish, swim and visit family. I love people, the area we live in, and I am ready to help you fulfill your dreams of living in our gorgeous area and state. I have 32 years of living here, owning a business and helping build this thriving community.
