I am a long time resident of the Lake Tahoe area. Like so many other locals, I spent a year working at a local Ski Resort. While there I fell in love with Ryan who was also an employee. We were married in 2003, and have two children.
In 2002 I started work a the South Tahoe Association of REALTORS as a bookkeeper and administrative assistant. During my time working at the office, I got to know many of the local real estate agents. I developed an interest in expanding my career opportunities and decided to pursue getting my real estate license. after my first child was born, I took the opportunity to study for the real estate exam, and received my CA and NV real estate licenses in 2004
One of my beliefs is that it is necessary to be involved in local associations and organizations. I have been involved in the South Tahoe Associations of REALTORS as a member of Committees starting the year I first got my license in 2004, and on the Board of Directors from 2006 through 2015. I was Vice President in 2009, President Elect in 2010, and President of the Association in 2011. I also served on the California Association of REALTORS Board of Directors to represent our local area for 2 years. I also served on the Citizens Bond Oversight Committee which was in charge of overseeing the Measure G funds that went toward the High School and other Schools for the millions of dollars in upgrades that have taken place over the past 10 years.
I have been honored by my fellow REALTORS by receiving the Rookie of the Year award in 2005, the Distinguished Service award in 2007 & 2009, a special “Unsung Hero” award in 2008, and REALTOR of the Year in 2011.
My background with budgets, committees, and other volunteer activities gives me a solid understanding of Boards and how they function. I know how to step outside of myself and do what is right for the general public/members even if it contradicts my personal feelings. I look forward to helping the community I love and care for.
