I help my clients buy or sell residential properties in the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes area. I’m a Seller Representative Specialist designee, with specialized training in helping homeowners sell.
My career background was in public relations and marketing communications, which provided a smooth transition into the real estate business in 2015.

The KW Market Center is located across from Best Buy near the Arnot Mall, at 971 County Road 64, Elmira, NY 14903, next to Elmira Savings Bank. My office phone is 607-795-2910 which rolls over to my cell phone, which is 607-742-1350.
Real estate is a people business, and my absolute passion is helping people through the process of buying or selling a home. It’s heartwarming and rewarding.
One of my pet peeves is litter, so I spearheaded KW’s commitment to an Adopt-A-Highway cleanup project. We’re responsible for an area near Lowes by the Arnot Mall, a busy intersection that certainly needs regular TLC.
When Covid hit, I paid contractors for a major home office remodel, and am very happy with the results. I love working from home. So much can be done virtually now. I still go to the office at times, but I have a pretty sweet set up. I even have a treadmill desk to keep me moving! My husband Tony and I own a few rental properties which also keeps us busy.
I’m a life-long area resident. Raised on a Holstein dairy farm in a rural valley east of Elmira, up Jerusalem Hill. This farm is a few miles from the historic Langdon home where Samuel Clemens -- Mark Twain's -- study originally was, before it was moved to Elmira College. In fact, I used to play at the original site of that study on East Hill.
The oldest of four and a country kid, my childhood included camping, skating, 4-H and horseback riding. Mom was a teacher with the Elmira City School District, with a knack for interior design and a flair for bold colors and daring decorating. When she retired from teaching, she opened a furniture and gift shop called The Willow Shoppe. Dad, always a hard-working entrepreneur, founded a successful concrete company called Custom Mix Concrete, that still thrives today under the ownership of my brother John.
I learned construction from dad, and interior design from mom. I also know a lot about local farming and its challenges, as my brother Tom was a Cornell grad who was the regional director of the USDA. He’s now a beef farmer and owner of Willow Valley Farms. My sister Becky is also in real estate and lives on Seneca Lake.
I’m a woman of faith, and I love my family and friends. Keller Williams gave me the foundation and focus to create a business and life worth living, with the right priorities, and my co-workers are like family too. I love rodeos, maple walnut ice cream, country walks, home decorating, and am trying to convince my husband we need a motor home. He’s trying to convince me to love golf. We love Seneca Lake, dinners out, road trips and time with family.
