Background & Experience
I understand how investors think, so I can help you make the most of your commercial real estate investments. My 12-year background as an investor and involvement in a variety of deals has given me a clear understanding of the investor mindset. What’s more, I enjoy the “win-win” spirit of investing that fosters smooth transitions in both simple and complicated transactions. Whether you are a buyer, seller, tenant, or landlord, I am excited to help you with your CRE investment goals. Prior to moving to the mountains of Western North Carolina, I earned a master’s degree in physical therapy. It was that career path that led me to practice as a physical therapist at Carepartners/Mission for 16 years. It also allowed me to work part-time, so I began investing in residential single-family and multi-family real estate in 2004. Since that time, I have been involved in solo and joint ventures, and I’ve found that I have a passion for creative financing. Joining NAI Beverly-Hanks and making commercial real estate a full-time career was a natural progression and I'm ready to put my prior investing experiences to work for you today.

I grew up on the South Carolina coast, but had the opportunity to work in New York City, Montana, Colorado, and Germany during my career as a physical therapist. As much as I miss the coast, my time in Boulder, Colorado gave me a love of the mountains. That's why I've called Asheville home for 16 years.

My two children attend Estes Elementary. Since they began school, I have started volunteering there on a weekly basis. It's really rewarding to assist with the chess club and work closely with the Reading Buddies program, helping Title One students to improve their reading skills. In my free time, I enjoy playing guitar, camping, hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing, and taking in Asheville's amazing local craft beer scene.
