Thank you for taking the time to read this page. I was born and raised in the City of Albany, first in the South End in what is now called the Mansion District, and then on Whitehall Road. I attended junior and senior high school at the Milne School, which was part of the State University of New York at AlbanyTeachers College. After college in Plattsburgh and graduate school at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland (on a government scholarship), I worked many years as a Registered Dietitian and Public Health Nutritionist. This gave me great experience in working closely with people. Almost fifteen years ago I decided to make Real Estate my second career, and once I started working in it I couldn't turn back. I love being a full time Realtor! I devote my professional time, energy, and emotion into serving my clients with the utmost care and integrity.
I owned my home in the Riviera Estates section of Latham for over 25 years and now live in Troy Hill. Both of my children went through the award winning North Colonie School District and are graduates of Shaker High School. My daughter Jessica is Creative Director of Marketing for Taco Bell in Irvine, California. My son Michael graduated from Queensland University Medical School and now lives in Osaka, Japan.
I love the Capital Region and the surrounding communities. This is a great place to live and work, to raise a family, or to retire to. Because I know and love this region, I feel I can enthusiastically represent you in the sale of your house or help you find investment property or the home of your dreams.

With property values continuing to rise, real estate is a sound investment for now and for the future.
