About Me

I was born and raised in San Diego California and my fondest memories of that time are the friends and extended family gatherings at the beach playing sand volleyball, body surfing and listening to the aunties and uncles play music and dance hula!

When we moved to Nevada I admit I felt like a fish out of water and was totally bummed going from the ocean/beach scene to the desert…that is until I got a horse! Then I saw the true beauty of Nevada. I thought I was Annie Oakley! I became involved in 4-H, Jr Riders and the Rodeo Club. I learned a lot about country music, two step, swing and polka style dance from my grandmother. She was an amazing musician and could play a number of instruments, as well as sing. Maybe that is why I have such a passion for music and dance and I love to DJ for special events now!

I was very fortunate to have such a diverse childhood …summers in San Diego and the rest of the time going to school, playing sports, my all-time favorite sport is fast pitch softball, and taking long rides in the wide open spaces of Nevada on horseback with friends. I am very happy to say that the friends I had growing up are the friends I still have today. Life is good!

When I got out of school, my passion for real estate allowed me to design and assist in the construction of six custom homes and help the family develop a small single-family residential neighborhood.
I have to admit, it was not all work and no play for the past 40+ years! I did raise two beautiful daughters, coached and played fast pitch softball. We went camping, fishing and enjoyed water sports as much as possible, in between softball tournaments.

As you can see, I love to work hard and play hard! I look forward in putting all my past experiences and life lessons to work for you and help you achieve your goals and dreams.
