My Story

Amid the 2020 pandemic, while working for a local government agency, I had an epiphany about the importance of being happy where you are, and it ignited my mission to spread happiness through housing! 

I earned an Associate Degree in Human Services and a Bachelor’s degree in Integrative Studies with minors in Sociology and Criminology. In 2021, I was humbled to be nominated as Ashtabula County’s Best Realtor and was thrilled to receive the People’s Choice award. Fast forward to 2023, I joined an exclusive league of agents by becoming part of the Ohio Realtor’s President's Club, earning the prestigious 2023 Award of Achievement. I also have had the honor of being voted Ashtabula County's People Choice Best Real Estate Agent of 2023 and selected as the Ashtabula County Board of Realtors Best Realtor of 2023. I recently passed the Ohio Real Estate Broker's Exam and earned my Managing Broker License.

I am a native Ashtabula County resident and my heart swells with pride for this region’s beauty and innovation. It is my calling to promote growth, infuse new vitality, and spark enthusiasm by connecting people to their dream properties. As a proud member of the community with deep roots, I wear multiple hats in support of our beloved area. Those hats include being a mother of two, a fiance, a self-proclaimed "Queen of Ashtabula", serving as a Vice President of the Ashtabula County Board of Realtors, a board director for Homesafe, a community member for the Ashtabula County Solid Waste Management Policy Advisory Committee and a Director for the Lift Bridge Community Association. You will often catch me rolling up my sleeves at local clean-up events, volunteering at my children's school, and connecting people with resources to help them continue to be successful.

As a Realtor with Novella Realty, I’m on a relentless quest to uncover the heart of your real estate buying or selling aspirations and make sure I not only meet but exceed those aspirations!  Keep your story going with my assistance at the beginning of your next chapter!
