Welcome to my Website

If you are looking to buy your first home, upgrade to something better, or even downsize to something more manageable, I want to help. With over 5 years of experience in the social work industry managing community-based mental health habilitation homes, I know what it takes to be resourceful, have a clear approach, and an unwavering dedication and passion to my work. My experience working in the social work field has firmly developed the foundation of my approach to be client-focused, honest, and adaptable. I understand that buying or selling a home can be one of the most exciting, yet stress-inducing experiences. I strive to make that experience as smooth and as peaceful as possible. I am confident that working with me will make your real estate experience seamless. If you are not currently looking to buy or sell a home, you probably know someone who is. Why not refer them to someone you can trust will work hard and dedicate quality time to their situation? Please feel free to contact me any time, I am always available and would love to hear from you!

Personal Background

My family and I are extremely close! I was born in Waukegan, IL and moved to Manchester, IA with my mom when I was 8. I have 2 older sisters and 4 older step-siblings. I have 15 nieces and nephews, so we have a lot of fun together at our large family gatherings! Most of our time together is spent having good ole Manchester, IA fun tubing down the white water rapids, having bon fires, and playing so many different kinds of our original household games (you should ask me about those sometime, they are a hoot!) I like to talk with and visit my dad and step-mom in Illinois as often as possible, and they make their way back to Iowa multiple times a year. I graduated from West Delaware High School which took me to Luther College in Decorah, IA. Luther was the best experience and really set me up for success in my professional career. At Luther, I participated in several intramurals, the volunteer-service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega, Psych Club, several research lab groups, and eventually found myself graduating with my BA in Psychology. After graduation, I began working in social work, a career I thought I was born and bred for. I moved to the Cedar Rapids area in early 2014 and continued my social work dreams managing mental health habilitation homes before finding my passion in real estate. In my free time I enjoy any summer activity you can throw at me, hanging out with my friends and family, playing "old-school" games like Mario Kart, and staying active through swimming, jogging, hiking, volleyball, and any other sport besides basketball - only because I am terrible. Truly, I think I am really boring, so if you would like any more information on me, I am only a text or phone call away!
