I am a Bay Area native. I live in the Sonoma and work selling Real Estate in both Sonoma and Napa with my partner Rob Jones. I grew up in Berkeley in the 60s where I was immersed in music and the arts, hanging out at People's Park, living first-hand through the political and social revolutions that emanated from the Bay Area. I spent amazing childhood summers on my grandparents' vineyards in the Central Valley, gaining an appreciation for the business and culture of the farming life.
I attended U.C. Berkeley where I studied Anthropology, Archeology and Art history, earning a degree in the history of Art with distinction in general scholarship. My favorite classes were on American Architecture where I learned how homes and how we live in homes has changed over the years.
I became a REALTOR® in 1999 to combine my love of homes and my passion for helping clients. I have served on the board of the North Bay Association of REALTORS®, and I am the 2014 president of the Sonoma Chapter of REALTORS®. I have served at the State level as a 2012 Regional Chair of the California Association of REALTORS® and currently serve as one of the Region 4 Directors. I am an active full-time REALTOR® with my partner Rob Jones, helping clients in their Sonoma and Napa real estate sales and searches.
I am also an accomplished California landscape painter and photographer.

I am a native New Englander. Before heading West, I earned a BA at the University of Connecticut, and a Masters in counseling at Duke University Divinity School. I lived in the southern New Mexico desert for a few years after grad school, building custom cabinetry and furniture for high end homes. This sparked a life-long love of domestic architecture, and all the unique things that make a house a home.
Coming to California in 1986, I leveraged my academics and training in counseling - and attention to fine detail - into a successful career as a business analyst consultant for 20 years, working for major corporations such as Charles Schwab, Visa, Merrill Lynch, and Wells Fargo. While the business was finance and technology, the work was in negotiation, attention to written detail, and overcoming obstacles to bring the client to a successful conclusion with a win for all parties involved.
I retired from corporate engagements in order to find a different balance in my life, and entered the real estate field, working first as a CREIA-certified home inspector before joining my partner David Kerr as a REALTOR®, working full time in Sonoma and Napa counties. My life-long skills and talents are all put to good use in exciting new ways, to ensure clients are able to achieve their dreams of buying and selling homes.
I am also a published poet and author in the field of religious studies.
