I was born and raised in the panhandle of Florida. Wanderlust struck and my family and I decided to trade the beaches for the mountains in March 2017.

My daughter is the center of my universe and when I'm out of the office, you'll usually find me taking her to the park, driving her to soccer practice, or sewing up an epic wardrobe for her.

Originally from Michigan, I made my way to Denver for college and didn’t look back. I love spending time outdoors when I’m not at work. Backcountry skiing, mountain biking, hunting and fly fishing are just a few ways I enjoy exploring the Rocky Mountain West. I think meals are best taken outside a tent around a campfire but I won’t ever refuse an evening at one of Denver’s incredible restaurants. Both are best enjoyed with good friends.

I’ve enjoyed my time at KEW Realty. After leaving CBRE in 2003 I began leasing KEW’s portfolio. Since then I have brokered over 3,000,000 SF of office, industrial and retail space for a total consideration of over $120,000,000.

I'm very passionate about music, it's always on, like the soundtrack to my life movie. My car is my own personal concert hall. I think Legos are funny, especially when built to create realism, or recreate iconic movie scenes.

I moved from California to Colorado in 2008 for college and enjoyed it so much I never left. Hiking, camping, eating… I love everything about this state. (Except driving in the snow. But what can you expect from a Californian?)

If I were to win the lotto, I’d set off to explore the world. I love experiencing other cultures and discovering new places. One of my favorite trips was a 4 Day/3 Night trek on the Inca Trail to see Machu Picchu!

My kids, and one adorable chunky little grandson, are what make my world go ‘round. I enjoy spending time wakeboarding, boating and snowboarding. Every day with them is a great day! Oh and football season, I like football season.

I was born in New York and relocated with my family to Colorado when I was eight years old. I love this state and am proud to call it home for me and my family.

I graduated from the University of Denver in 2008, and worked in the audio-visual event industry before moving to the communications industry. I joined KEW in 2013, and received my real estate broker's license in the summer of 2013. I received my MS in Real Estate and the Built Environment from DU in 2016.

The great Colorado outdoors is my playground. Wildlife, different cultures, and the world are fascinating to me. My primary form of exercise is swingdancing which I crave on a regular basis!
