I have enjoyed being a Grand Rapids resident since 2000, when I moved here from the Eastside in 2000 following my high school graduation to attend Cornerstone University. There I received my BA in Marketing while working as an intern at Prudential Preferred Realtor before it merged w/Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Michigan Real Estate. I loved the city and real estate so I stayed in town, got my license, and became a Realtor/Executive Assistant to one of the top producers at the time. I gained invaluable knowledge and growth and wanted to put more of my marketing skills to work, so after 5 years of aiding buyers/sellers, I made a switch over to a different side of real estate. I worked as the marketing director for a large Property Management firm that represented over 1000 units.
On a personal note, my passions include all things food (cooking, but mostly eating), physical fitness, getting lost in a good book, and 80s hair bands. My husband Jason and I have been married since 2009 and have built a wonderful life together: Started in a downtown condo where we walked to concerts and festivals, and moved to suburbia where we started a family and garden. Big change, but equally awesome! Fast forward to 2016, I decided it was time to step back from an industry I loved, to be home with our 2 amazing boys. Now that my youngest is starting kindergarten, it is time to get back to hanging with adults again and I am thrilled to be on such a stellar team that exudes positivity, knowledge and excellence. The Brace Team is a natural fit for my love of serving in the community and building lasting relationships.
