I'm a people person, social by nature, and there's nothing I love more than good conversation with friends new and old. I love entertaining guests in my Ben Avon home and hosting Pinterest-worthy birthday, holiday, and just because parties. When we first meet it will probably be over a coffee at one of my favorite local coffee shops and my goal will be to get to know you and give you a little bit of background about myself.
I'll tell you about how I've lived in Pittsburgh my whole life, how I can't imagine living elsewhere: my love for the Steel City runs deep. I went to college at the University of Pittsburgh (H2P!), completing my Bachelors in History of Art & Architecture. I also minored in Studio Arts and received a certificate in Children's Literature. I completed graduate school at Pitt as well, earning my Masters in Teaching and am a licensed K-6 Elementary teacher.
Immediately following my time in Oakland, I spent 7 years teaching second grade in Upper St. Clair. It was a magical time where I spent my days enriching the lives of children, designing lessons, bulletin boards, and projects that allowed me to channel my creativity in one of the most constructive ways possible.
When we meet I will tell you about my four kids - the loves of my life! They motivate me to work hard and dedicate every minute outside of my time with them to making them proud of their realtor mom. Their active schedules keep me moving and when I'm not driving all over Allegheny County to show houses, I'm driving the soccer/ballet/baseball/scout taxi.
Outside of the connections I make through my children's social calendars, I am active in the local community. I serve on the board of the Wooden Ladder Preschool, am the House & Hostess chair of the Avon Club, and lead a local Girl Scout troop.
I chose real estate as a career not only because of my passion for architecture and my natural love of talking to people, but because it so aptly fits my creative side too. Marketing should be inventive: when listing with me your house will stand out. When searching for a new house in this imbalanced market, you want an agent who employs out-of-the-box, proactive ideas to find you the perfect match - whether it's on or off the market!
I can't wait to meet you, to find out all about you and your life, and how I can help you to find your next home!
