I spent my formative years in Sudbury, Massachusetts, attending college at the University of Massachusetts / Dartmouth where I earned a BFA in Visual Design. After college, I worked for various studios and agencies in the Boston - Cambridge area. From 1983-1988, I was a member of the Lettering Arts Guild of Boston, a creative guild who sponsored workshops and exhibited Calligraphic work. A highlight of this career chapter was designing business presentations for a global consulting group. This work offered extensive travel to Europe, Canada and the US. My first visit to Maine was a family vacation in Thomaston at the age of nine. Other youthful experiences included helping to build a family vacation home in Friendship and summer resort work in the Boothbay Harbor Region. I began my career in real estate in 1997. My experience includes listing and selling waterfront, island and resort property, new construction and investment property. I have extensive relocation experience helping buyers from all over the country make their move to this great state. I am a member of the Portland Board of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors. I am a founding member of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of Portland. Outside interests include travel, cooking, golf, and religiously following all the Boston sports teams.
