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 cyclist and also enjoy canoeing, motorcycling, and skiing. I sit on the board of the Harrisonburg Parks and Recreation Commission and Harrisonburg Environmental Performance Standards Commission. I also volunteer with the Harrisonburg-Rockingham Association of Realtors and am a graduate of Harrisonburg’s Chamber of Commerce Leadership (BOLD) Program.  You may recognize me as the coordinator of Bikes For Refugees, an alternative transportation partnership with Refugee Resettlement.
