Sometimes I take for granted being in the real estate industry. Being in the midst of the daily goings-on of this fast moving business both on- and off-line provides me with powerful market knowledge and insights. Many people begin the process of buying or selling their most valuable asset without those same insights and that makes a person feel overwhelmed, vulnerable, over even stuck. My job is to educate and empower my clients to have confidence in their real estate decisions. The role I play in helping you make major lifestyle decisions is important and I take it seriously. Big Sky real estate sales is my full time career and it keeps me engaged in my community. Over the years, I've gained experience with all facets of our local market, from short sales in entry-level condominiums to the upper echelon of properties and buyers, from commercial warehouses to historic estates. I was raised in Ohio and educated in Virginia. At Washington & Lee University, I earned a degree in Philosophy and studied the humanities in New Zealand and Australia. Eight years ago, I moved to the West, knowing I'd found my new home. Since then, my time in Big Sky has enriched me. Now I serve as the President of the Arts Council of Big Sky and sit on the board of the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center. My husband founded and co-owns Grizzly Outfitters. We are passionate about Big Sky's future. This is a very exciting time to live in a small -- but growing -- town.
