As a young woman with a passionate interest in helping others improve their lives, I earned my first bachelor's degree in Education, followed by a second in Interior Design. Though I loved teaching, my affinity for creative business endeavors led me to pursue Interior Design. After working for many years with my own company in Interior Design, I found myself ready to explore new horizons in the corporate world of real estate. My family was and is still heavily involved for many years in both residential sales and development, as well as a few have migrated into commercial real estate sales and development.
In Phoenix, I worked with a real estate company specializing in new home sales, working with both new home buyers and residential real estate investors. As I built my real estate clientele, I grew and developed my own investment real estate company with more than 30 agents in Scottsdale, AZ in the mid 2000's. This unfolded through my participation in AZREIA, one of the nation's largest personal real estate investment associations at that time. I held workshops, spoke at the National Convention for 3 years, was an Instructor with the Commercial Real Estate Institute, and wrote monthly newsletter articles for the Association's Monthly Newsletter over a four-year period.
I was featured as a Master Investor on the cover of Personal Real Estate Investor Magazine, and also as Broker of the month in Broker Magazine, and was a sought-after speaker and advisor within the real estate investment community. I appeared on radio, and in front of national audiences, discussing not only real estate investment, but also personal development, and the virtues of also investing in oneself, in all areas of true wealth. Personal Development is one of my passions and in my free time, taking self-improvement classes brings me joy.
