Who am I? That is a good question and one that is always growing and changing!  I grew up in Centre County, running through streams and across fields in a rural community.  My father was a professor at Penn State so I had the benefit of exposure to worlds outside of our community, traveling throughout the U.S. and also in Europe.  After college, I moved to Colorado and enjoyed my Rocky Mountain experience for several years.

Ultimately, Happy Valley drew me back, and I am glad that it did.  I enjoy the balance of quality living in an active community, the close proximity of farmland, mountains and outdoor activities, and the ability to reach several large cities in a matter of a few hours or less.  It is a fabulous place to grow and live. And now I am enjoying sharing the experience with my son as well.

It has been my pleasure to assist buyers and sellers since 1983.  My real estate business continues with their referrals.  They know I care about people first and will do my absolute best to assist their family members, friends and associates with their housing needs.

Personal Background

State College is my home town although I lived in Pittsburgh, PA; Canton, Ohio and Holidaysburg, PA for short periods of time. 

It is easy for me to assist buyers settle in or sellers market their homes since this area's pride of ownership, safety and many attractions can't be beat.

I'm sold on Centre County.  It's a great place to live!

Professional Background

An administrative background in advertising and marketing for research and development, retail, hospital and real estate prepared me to handle all the details of real estate transactions.   Whether marketing your home or showing houses to assist you in finding that dream home, the best part for me is meeting and getting to know people from all over the world.

Personal Interests

Growing up in State College and having my son grow up here has kept me in touch with the area's changes and growth to enjoy so much that this area has to offer.

My most recent personal interest is spending time with my son, his  wife and my first granddaughter.
