Why Real Estate?
My first real estate transaction as a client was a nightmare that cost me a lot but my second one, with Darwin as my Realtor, was a very smooth transaction. It was the combination of those two experiences that pushed me towards real estate and motivated me to get my license. I’ve always enjoyed working and helping others through teaching and coaching and real estate has proved to be another area where I get those kinds of opportunities.

3 Word Bio:
Honest, Patient, Trustworthy
I graduated from Kansas Wesleyan with a degree in Elementary Education in 1996 and a Masters in Educational Leadership from University of Phoenix in 2004. I have been teaching since 1999 and have taught everything from K-8 Science Lab to Middle School Publications to my current position as a Special Education Teacher in Chandler Unified. I received my Real Estate License in 2006 and have really enjoyed working in the real estate field. I was given an opportunity to join a great team with the Darwin Wall Team and I’m looking forward to expanding my knowledge of the real estate world.
