About Me
    I'm a Portage native having been born and raised in the local area. My youth was filled with extra-curricular activities and organizations centered around school, family and athletics (mainly soccer). Even with my father's "misguided" attemp to make me a Hoosier, I successfully became a Bronco fan. I graduated from Western Michigan University with a degree in Marketing in April 2000. During the summer breaks of high school & the first few years of college, I worked as a closing agent at Metropolitan Title Company. The last few years of college I worked as a Real Estate Assistant. In June 2000 I received my State of Michigan Real Estate Sales License. In 2001, I received my ABR Designation, in 2004, I received my GRI Designation & in 2009, I received my CDPE Desigantion. On a personal note, I've been married to my husband, Mark, since August 2002. We had a son, Mason, in July 2005 and a daughter, MaKenna, in January 2012. My attention to detail, coupled with a strong desire to provide exemplary service, make an unbeatable combination.
