Born and raised in Ottawa, the capital city of Canada, I was fortunate to be exposed to many cultures, and grew accustomed to different tastes in architecture, design and excellent international food! My mother worked for an embassy and my father owned a restaurant, so I learned very early how to help people feel comfortable and cater to their needs. I earned a Bachelor’s degree in English Literature and a Master’s Degree in Bilingual Bicultural Education. After graduation, I worked with international undergraduates and graduate students at the University of South Carolina. In 2015, my husband started a faculty position at the University of Florida College of Medicine. I have called Gainesville home ever since.
We have three lovely children – Alyssa, Kinan and Ryan.
I have a passion for Real Estate and sharing everything amazing about Florida and our community. Gainesville is an incredible city to live in, raise a family, and pursue so many interests that add growth and beauty to your life. Each neighborhood has so much beauty to offer, and the people of Gainesville are the nicest people you’ll ever meet.
I am very proud to raise my children here and expose them to the vibrant University community with an abundance of diversity, sportsmanship and a rich academic environment. UF is a world class academic institution, and I am proud that my family is a part of the UF community. Go Gators!
When I am not working, I’m either singing Frank Sinatra with my kids, drinking Boba Tea or tending to my garden. We have a selection of fruit trees – fig, peach, olive, pomegranate, lemon, grapefruit, lime and a mulberry tree that the kids help me maintain. This is one of the amazing perks to living in Gainesville, the weather is wonderful.
For all your interests, from landscaping advice, appliance advice, and a personally generated list of where to buy home furnishings and decor, I am the person you want to help you find your dream home or help stage your current home
