I was born in Colorado and raised in Wyoming as a rancher’s daughter, which instilled in me a strong work ethic, from the start. I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with an English Education in K-12 teaching degree. Beginning in 1992, I built a successful mortgage business as a result of my organizational skills, attention to detail, professionalism and integrity. I consistently served as a Top Mortgage Lender in Northern Colorado and was Recognized as “Affiliate of the Year by the Greeley Board of Realtors.”
In 2002, I met my husband Chris while training for a marathon. We were married that same year and I also became a step-mom to two beautiful children, Meagan and Connor. We adopted our first baby, Blake, in February 2006 and adopted our second baby, Makayla, in November 2007. Chris and I feel extremely blessed to be adoptive parents and cherish the gift of unselfish love provided by their birth parents.
In 2007, I went on to become a licensed Realor, giving me the opportunity to use my mortgage lending expertise to professionally guide clients through the entire real estate transaction.
I have earned the following awards/titles as a Realtor:
-I received the Real Living Premier Service Diamond Agent Award in 2013
-I earned the Real Living CO Real Estate Highest Combined Sales Volume, Most Buyers, Highest Buyer Sales Volume, and Highest Listing Sales Volume in 2014
-Top 5 Berkshire Hathaway Homeservices Innovative agent, 2016
-Involved in both the Unified Association of Realtors and National Association of Realtors.
-Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE)
In addition to real estate, my husband Chris and I enjoy raising our 4 children. We love Colorado and what is has to offer us, whether it be in the Colorado mountains, city of Denver, the change of seasons, or the amazing schools and people.
I have a deep passion for giving and am always looking for ways to give of my time and financially. That passion continually makes me want to be a better person. Here are some of the ways that I have given back:
-Started an adoption Foundation that assists families offset the cost of adoptions (raised over $50,000).
-In 2010 and again in 2014, I organized 2 separate running fundraisers for cancer patients who were dear friends (raised over $30,000 through each fundraising effort).
-Top Fundraiser for the Rocky Mountain Region through the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (raised over $36,000).
-In 2013, I created my Giving Back Campaign. With this campaign, I donate 5% of my commissions on each successfully closed transaction to the charity of my client’s choosing, in their name. Together, we have donated over $35,000 to over 60 different charities, most of them being local.
