I grew up in rural eastern Kansas, in a small town that doesn't have a stop light. If you blink, you might just miss it. I love animals (really anything furry), especially rabbits! I enjoy spending time outdoors, tending my rose garden, hiking, and skiing. I’m naturally a positive person and strive to always go the extra mile for people. You will mostly find me in the office, helping clients with any questions that arise during the selling and buying process.
