I grew up in Correctionville, Iowa just east of Sioux City.  When I was younger, my family vacationed at Okoboji with friends and in 1987 my parents bought a cabin on the lake with 50' of East Okoboji Lakeshore for under $50,000. WOW, how land prices have changed in 30 years! Ever since then, I have loved Okoboji and moved here full time in 1996 after graduating from Iowa State University.  I owned 2 daycare centers and taught preschool in the lakes area from 1997 until 2009.  

I have been a licensed REALTOR in the Iowa Great Lakes area since March 2008 and started my own brokerage NextHome At The Lakes in March 2016.  I opened my second office in January 2018 in Sioux City, Iowa and am excited to be able to serve people in my old stomping ground! I am now licensed in 4 states, Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota, and Nebraska!

I am very involved with the REALTOR organization serving as president of my local Board of Realtors in 2013 and 2014 and am currently Past President of the Northwest Iowa Regional Board of REALTORS.  I was a director for the Iowa Association of REALTORS in 2013 and 2014 and currently am serving as IAR Regional Vice President for Region 1. In 2016, I was on the Resort and Second Homes Real Estate Committee for the National Association of REALTORS and in 2017 and 2018,  I  served on NAR's Idea Exchange Council for Brokers.  Because of my involvement at the local, state and national levels, I was voted as REALTOR of the year for my local association in 2014.

In my spare time, I love watching sporting events but especially the Iowa State Cyclones and Minnesota Vikings and Twins.  I also enjoy spending time with my nieces and nephews and my 160 pound Boerboel (South African Mastiff), Buddy.

As a full time professional real estate agent, I pride myself on offering superior personal service before, during and after your transaction. Knowledge, commitment, honesty, expertise and professionalism are the cornerstone of my business. Let me earn your trust, your business and most importantly your friendship. Don’t make another move without me. I guarantee you will see the difference quality service makes. I look forward to working with you and helping you find your NextHome At The Lakes or in the TriState Area
