Although I grew up in Panama City, Florida, I’ve lived in the Hattiesburg area since 1994. If you’re about to make a move I know just how you feel.
Between 1994 and 2007 I moved 11 times.
It’s stressful. I get it.
It took me a while to find my calling as a REALTOR®, but I’ve always worked in an area of service. As a registered nurse I learned to care for others and to always make the best decision for the patients…
a practice I continue to this day for my real estate clients.
Suffering from “nursing burnout”, I longed for my own business in a completely new field. I wanted to be challenged in a whole new way. I wanted variety, flexibility, and an uncapped earning potential. I left the bedside in 2014 and became a REALTOR® at the suggestion of a local broker who predicted this would be a good fit.
Boy was she right!
The success I’ve achieved as a REALTOR® comes from combining my love for people and my ability to problem-solve in stressful situations with my “I talk to strangers everywhere I go” personality.
Throw in a healthy dose of competitiveness and voila!
I’ve built 5 homes since 1996 so I know a lot about what goes in to quality construction. So whether it’s a pre-existing home or a new build you’ve got your heart set on, I can’t wait to work for you!
On a personal note…
My family loves a good road trip! We’ve driven the entire Natchez Trace with the kids and we also drove with them to the Grand Canyon where we hiked down the switchbacks to the Havasupai Indian Reservation. We’ve hiked up to Mt. LeConte and enjoyed an old-fashioned south Florida drive through St. Augustine.
Now that the kids are grown and on their own, John and I still love to travel. Our favorite spots are a good Airbnb in Nashville or Chicago - but Italy is a bucket list trip I hope to take within the next 5 years.
I love to cook a big pot of gumbo or chicken and dumplings for the kids when they’re home and a day with my camera in my hand wandering the streets of New Orleans makes me really happy. But a nice quiet evening on the couch binge-watching a good Netflix series with my husband after a successful day at work sure is hard to beat!
