I was raised in a suburb south of Boston, Scituate. I had so many opportunities to sail and snow ski, passion that continues to this day. I attended college in the Midwest as an undergrad at the University of Cincinnati and received a Master's degree from Xavier University. I spent 30 years in Cincinnati raising my children and enjoying a career in education administration. I retired for the first time and became Director of Business Development for a small private company that sold software to school districts. From there we moved to Denver, Colorado and I became Director of Education for the National Ski Patrol. An organization that I have been a volunteer for over 27 years devoting time and trining to rescue in an outdooor enviorment as a first responder.
Our next adventure took us to Southwest Florida and we settle in Punta Gorda. The big transition was because we wanted to get closer to family and the love our life, our grandson Jackson. At this time I got my real estate license and fell in love with my new career. It was a natural fit. Through the years as a educator, business development and director of education my career path has always involved people and finding solutions for a positive outcome. Being part of the Coldwell Banker team and finding good solutions that meet everyone's real estate needs is the next part of my journey.

My first career which spanned 30 years was in education as an elementary school principal. After retirement I went into business development for a small company in Cincnnati for about 6 years. At this point my children were grown and I moved to Denver, Colorado and was the National Education Director for the National Ski Patrol. Family circumstances changed and I am now part of the Punta Gorda community as a Realtor.
Throughout my life I have been active and always learning. I have been a volunteer for the National Ski Patrol as a first responder in the outdoor environment. I have held several offices in this organization and did countless hours of training. I have particpated in Habitat for Humanity and am a member of Punta Gorda Rotary and serve on the membership committee of the Twin Isles Country Club.
My activities are boating, golf and snow skiing. We belong to the Freedom Boat club and love to visit and boat out of all of the different harbors in SWFL. I have traveled to Europe to ski in Germany, Austria and italy and have visited all 50 states. My hometown is Sciuate, MA which is south of Boston. I raised my family in Cincinnati, Ohio. In additon, I love yoga, gardening and exploring craft beers!
I earned my undergad degree in elementary education from the University of Cincinnati. I followed that with two master's degrees in education administration from Xavier University. I have attended Harvard Leadership Academy. In additon I am a trained first responder, Outdoor Emergency Care instructor as well as a licensed realtor.
Believe it or not there are some wonderful eating places right here in Punta Gorda. I love to try new places and especially if they seve seafood. I enjoy exploring and navigating the intercoastal waterways and stopping at off the beaten paths to eat. There is so much to do. The next challenge is stand up paddle boarding!
I am invloved at Twin Isles Country Club since there focus is to grow the membership. I manage their Facebook to promote the club and all that is has to offer. Rotary of course has many different pay it forward activities and I get invloved whenever possible.
