This experience honed her communication and negotiation skills, attributes she now harnesses in her role as a commercial real estate broker.

  • My best days start with a run or a session on my yoga mat (which gives me an excuse to still do handstands in my 40s 😊!)

  • I love the game of golf, even though it doesn’t always love me. And through the game and the power of strong relationships, I’ve met and played with several Champion players including Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Andy North, and Bernhard Langer.

  • I’ve been in a helicopter that had to make an emergency landing!

  • I’m still a farm girl at heart.
