What did you do professionally before real estate?
I spent 10 years working in the forklift/industrial lift industry. Service Dispatch, Customer Service, Service Administrator and Rental Manager.

Name one thing people would be surprised to know about you.
I got into real estate after having a (benign) brain tumor and not being able to return to my job at the forklift dealership. After 3 years of not being able to work (and drive for a while) and a 2nd surgery, I decided I wanted to “try” real estate… so…here I am, almost 20 years later.
What do you believe are the critical issues facing the real estate industry?
I feel like I’m stating the obvious…low inventory and rising interest rates. The affordability factor for 1st time buyers. It is extremely difficult for them to compete.
What is motivating you to run for the RAYAC Board of Directors?
I feel very strongly that you can’t complain, if you’re not willing to contribute… I also feel that it’s important to give back to the organization that does so much for it’s members and our community.
