Life continues to be full of joys and a few sorrows. I've been a resident of the Cave Creek / Carefree community for over 40 years. The years spent here have been by choice. Born and raised on a family HOMESTEAD in Illinois, I've had the opportunity to travel and see more of the World than I ever dreamed about. My three children grew up here and now I have four adult grandchildren in the Valley. My years here were first spent as a Registered Nurse and then I chose Real Estate as a "late in life career change" never dreaming that I would be going on to a quarter of century anniversary as a realtor. "I live here, I raised my family here, I know the area".
