336 Park Avenue, Boca Grande FL 33921

I moved to Boca Grande full time in 2008, but I have frequented the area since the late 80's. While attending Penn State University, I participated in the Semester at Sea program. I hold a Master's of Science degree in Occupational Therapy.  Prior to relocating to the island to be close to my parents, I had a successful career in pharmaceutical sales. I am an outdoor enthusiast.  I enjoy biking, paddle boarding, spending time on the beach, fishing, boating and golfing.  I have 2 sons.  The eldest attends Florida State in Tallahassee, and the youngest is at Rollins College in Winter Park, FL.  

Two of the main reasons why I chose to relocate to Boca Grande, were due to the Island "bike path" which is perfect for biking and walking (the old CSX railroad track that runs from the Northern end to the South End of the Island), and the "dog friendly" environment of the Island, that includes a designated "dog park" where dogs of all sizes and breeds gather every evening to "socialize".  

I take my professional life very seriously. To ensure that I exceed the needs of my clients, I continue to advance my education. In addition to earning my Florida Broker's license, I hold real estate designations in Residential construction, Negotiating, Resort and Second Home Property Specialist, and I was awarded the Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS) designation. The CLHMS designation is awarded to agents who have documented performance in the TOP 10% of their markets and have successfully demonstrated their expertise in the luxury home and estate market.

I am a member of the national and local board of Realtors, and a member of the Institute for Luxury home marketing. I utilize the latest technology to ensure that I am always readily available to my clients. I pride myself on my integrity and honesty, strong work ethic, and my ability to provide the highest level of customer service. My #1 goal is to earn your repeat business and referrals.    

You can reach me directly at 941.961.0630. I look forward to finding you a home on the island, and helping you and your family LIVE BOCA GRANDE!
