Originally from northern Ohio, I made the move to central Florida at the age of 14 and have come to love the more mild climate and the amazing atmosphere we are lucky to be surrounded by everyday. For the first 15 years of my career in Lakeland, I was employed with Publix, in various roles. All the way from an associate, to customer service management, and finally to the corporate office. These roles allowed me to gain an immense amount of customer relations skills, which has translated perfectly into my role as a Realtor. Having lived in Lakeland for so many years, I am intimately familiar with this community and our local real estate market. My unique skill set allows me to serve my clients with not only a huge local knowledge, but also with a personal touch that extends far beyond the close of their home. I am experienced in all aspects of real estate, from working with buyers and sellers, to also having a wealth of knowledge with real estate investing, as I have renovated multiple personal properties. I love being involved in our community and being able to give back, through multiple organizations that benefit the citizens of our amazing city. Having the opportunity to impact someone's life in a way they can't on their own gives me an incredible sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. I genuinely love what I do and look forward to helping you accomplish all of your real estate goals!
