A Westchester native, I bolster my customer service expertise with my Hudson Valley insights: From the region’s historic estates and wineries to outdoor adventure and natural beauty, I can find the property — and the area — that fits you and your family to a tee. 

Before launching my real estate career, I’d spent many years serving as Director of Marketing, Communications, and Environmental Education for GlenArbor Golf Club in Bedford, New York. I subsequently drew upon my achievements in environmental education to work as a consultant in the agriculture and farming industry, managing operations for several farms throughout Westchester County. My experiences extend to supporting and volunteering for several nonprofits, including Guiding Eyes for the Blind, where I have fostered dogs in the Brood/Stud Program for over a decade.

Before joining RE/MAX, I had spent several years as an agent at a small Westchester-based real estate brokerage. My entire background has significantly influenced my career and exceptionalism as a real estate agent, including cultivating long-lasting client relationships across a broad spectrum with my ‘can-do’ attitude.
