I am a full-time REALTOR® who is very familiar with the different neighborhoods in the city of Chicago and suburban areas. Having grown up in the northern suburbs of Chicago, I spent the last 21 years in the city where I lived in Lincoln Park, Lakeview, and Logan Square. I spent 20 years in education as a social worker in schools and as a special education administrator working with students with special needs. This experience has given me extremely strong communication and listening skills and a vast knowledge of different schools and school districts. I love helping first time home buyers and educating them on the home buying process and when to buy a home. I am an Accredited Buyer's Representative as well as a Senior Real Estate Specialist and the additional training has provided me insight into working with people going through various transitions in life. I also served as the Assistant Sales Manager at the Hamptons of Hinsdale during the last phase of new construction, so I have experience in new construction and development.
I am very involved in my community and am currently serving as a Condo Association board member and past president, I am on the Board of Esperanza Community Services and volunteer at Gilda's Club of Chicago. Professionally, I am a member of the Chicago Association of REALTORS®, the Illinois Association of REALTORS® and the National Association of REALTORS®. In my free time, I enjoy Pilates, yoga, cooking/baking, reading, and knitting.
I acquired a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from University of Kansas and a Masters of Social Work degree from University of Illinois in Chicago. I also have a Master of Arts degree from Chicago State University and am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.
