I was born and raised in Zionsville, but currently live in Midtown with my husband, David, and our two boys, Judah and Jethro.  

The majority of my professional career has been spent in the non-profit sector in various management and leadership positions where my operations, administration, and communication skills were utilized. In early 2016, I took the plunge to become a realtor and have experienced tremendous success and growth in a short time. When it comes down to it I’m passionate about serving others and my experience in the non-profit sector has given me experience and a skill-sets that I believe give me an edge in real estate dealings. I really can’t think of a better way to serve someone then guiding them through the home selling or buying process. People deserve to have the best when it comes to the largest purchase they may ever make!


My motivations in real estate are bit different than what you might expect. First, I genuinely hope that each of my clients find their HAVEN. I am passionate about helping others find a space where they feel safe, proud, and excited about where they rest their heads at night. I believe that finding the right physical space to occupy is incredibly important in like. After all, it becomes the backdrop where a rich life can be built and lived.

I’m also really motivated to show off the stellar city of Indianapolis. Growing up in the surrounding area, I have seen Indianapolis transition from a sleepy crossroads to a vibrant hub of innovation, growth, community and success. I LOVE INDY, and wants to see it thrive and get others to love it too!
