Although I was born and raised in Indiana, Louisiana has been home to me for forty-seven years. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Indiana State University, where I became a lifetime member of Sigma Kappa Sorority. Upon graduation, I moved to Louisiana and attended graduate school at Louisiana State University. Shortly thereafter, I obtained a Master’s Degree in Supervision and a Specialist Degree in Administration. I retired after nearly thirty-five years as an educator and middle school disciplinarian.

My hobbies and interests include playing classical music on the piano, traveling, and spoiling my 3.2 pound Yorkie. Over the last few years, I have planned nearly a dozen galas for Kiwanis International of LAMISSTENN, my local Kiwanis Organization, Inter-Civic Council of Greater Baton Rouge, and Altrusa International. I also enjoy interior decorating, as there always seems to be a project going on in my home.

After retiring from the education arena, I became a real estate professional. Shortly thereafter, I was named the “Rookie of the Year”. I have served and/or chaired eleven committees for the Greater Baton Rouge Association of Realtors. In addition, I received the “Rising Star Award” from the Greater Baton Rouge Association of Realtors at their installation and awards luncheon. In 2016 I was nominated for “Humanitarian of the Year”.

I have been a member of The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing since 2009. I have served as Red Stick Kiwanis President 2012-2014, and I was named Kiwanian of the Year 2014-2015, as well as Kiwanian of the Decade 2016-2017. I recently received the Olin K. Dart, Jr. Kiwanian of the Year Award 2018-2019. Currently I am serving as LAMISSTENN Lieutenant Governor for District 8E 2018- 2020. In addition, I am serving as President of the Inter-Civic Council of Greater Baton Rouge 2019, which is made up of 50 non-profit organizations. ICCGBR partners with The Advocate to name the recipient of the Golden Deeds Award.

My motto is INTEGRITY, SERVICE, and RESULTS in not only real estate, but all that I do.
