In 2005 my family moved to Salmon Arm from Ontario. We were looking for a change of pace; a different lifestyle and safe environment to raise our three children.

What we found was the perfect community – offering all the amenities with a small town feel. The Salmon Arm area has great schools, entertainment, shopping, and recreational opportunities year round.  We love to ski, hike, bike and explore the local lakes and campgrounds.  As an active community member, I proudly support the SPCA, The Family Resource Centre, Shuswap Children’s Association and the SAFE Society.

Previous to real estate, I worked as a  Human Resources professional for over 18 years. 

I love people and I love what I do.

My dedication to my clients has earned me some exciting career achievements.

 Awards:

  • 2018,/2019 Centurion award with Century 21; including #65 in units sold across Canada with Century 21 landing me in the top 1% across Canada with Century 21
