WHERE WERE YOU BORN?
HOW LONG HAVE YOU LIVED IN CHARLOTTE AREA?
TELL US A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT YOU?
Boston Born, Carolina Raised. I am married to my best friend, Brian and we have two fur babies, Bo & Bella. I just recently made the decision to step away from the medical industry and pursue my real estate license. Before that I danced for the Charlotte Hornets for 5 years and is actually how I first met my amazing Husband! We just started our new business adventure with AirBnB with one home in December 2017 and now have 7 homes in the Charlotte, Asheville & surrounding areas on the platform. I now help manage and teach others how to accomplish the same thing!
DURING YOUR TIME VOLUNTEERING FOR A COMMUNITY ACTIVITY OR PROJECT, WHAT IS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT?
When I cheered for the Hornets, I was fortunate enough to do a lot of community activities over the 5 years and some of my best memories to date. But one in particular I will never forget was during the Holiday season. We gathered at Target and met a large group of children and was able to take them shopping for whatever they wanted. It was not only a fun experience for them to see them light up interacting with the players and us but something I will never forget. Telling the kids they could shop for whatever they wanted and to see so many little ones grab winter coats or stuff for their siblings just touched my heart and was truly an experience I will never forget.
IN YOUR OPINION, HOW DO YOU CONTRIBUTE TO THE COMMUNITY? PLEASE BE AS DETAILED AS YOU CAN.
I have a very positive energy and have never met a stranger. I love my job and helping clients find their dream home! I contribute in the Charlotte Real Estate market by helping make the buying and selling process an enjoyable and exciting process for all my clients. I also own several AirBnB investment properties, have completed my first full home renovation and share my skills of interior design that give me a refreshing, detailed, and knowledgeable approach in our community.
