My Roots Run Deep in Palm Beach County!
Raised in Central Palm Beach County, I grew as the County grew. In the 1970’s, I attended new elementary schools as they were built to accommodate population growth. My school bus often had to stop for cows crossing Congress Avenue! I have seen communities rise from where orange groves and farms once stood. Jupiter, Wellington and the Western communities were farms, forests, or citrus groves not so very long ago.
After receiving my B.A. degree in Communications/Marketing from Virginia Tech University in 1985, I began my career in Washington, D.C. as the Associate Director of Communications for the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS). I returned to Palm Beach County four years later to open a public relations/special events company.
In 2004, following a brief family hiatus, I returned to the work force as a licensed Realtor. Today, I specialize in all areas of real estate: from re-sales, short sales and bank owned properties to senior communities, new construction and rentals. Outside from work, my chief interests are reading, walking, yoga, studying Feng Shui, and spending time with my family in the City of Lake Worth Beach.
To me, Palm Beach County is the best combination of old memories and new possibilities. Whether along the coast or further inland, the construction of new communities, as well as the renaissance of older neighborhoods, are evidence of the varied lifestyles available here. Let me show you the Palm Beach County that I know.
