I received my license in February 2000 and spent 10 years with a franchise brokerage. Beginning in mid 2003, while pursuing my sales activities, I spent 2 1/2 years working with new agents mentoring/coaching them as their Career Development Manager. I have obtained the GRI designation (Graduate Realtor Institute – approximately 90 hours of class work and training). I received my Broker’s license in January 2008. In January 2011 I applied for and was awarded my CRS(Certified Residential Specialist) designation held by approximately 4% of realtors nationwide.  Prior to real estate, my background is 16 years of office, accounting, and management experience with clients and vendors from the engineering field.  I enjoy being a volunteer and Board member at FieldHaven Feline Center, a non profit cat rescue organization in Lincoln, CA.
