I have been in the real estate industry since 2002 and with Exit Right Realty since 2006. I specialize in first time home buyers, first time home sellers and military relocations. Prior to being a Realtor, I spent 20+ years in the nonprofit sector on health-related issues. One health issue that particularly struck me was PTSD which was my introduction to the military and believe it or not, to first responders. It is not by accident that by business partner served in the Marines. He is also a Pastor which resonates well with my work ethic.
Of course I work with civilians as well. I enjoy helping first time home buyers which is why I conduct monthly workshops to provide information about the real estate market, down payment assistance programs and a step-by-step guide to the home buying process.

Licensed in Maryland and the District of Columbia, I am a member of the National Association of Realtors, Maryland Association of Realtors, Greater Capital Area Association of Realtors and Women’s Council of Realtors.
My hobbies are many and varied and extend from learning new languages to learning to play different musical instruments. I enjoy volunteering with Habitat for Humanity (of course) and Success in Style, a non profit agency that provides clothing and styling support to men and women who have successfully overcome challenges like homelessness, drug abuse or alcoholism. I also serve on the board of directors for GOA, a vocational rehabilitation and placement program for homeless men. Additionally, I am on the board of two nonprofit agencies that provide services to military families, one of which is specifically for homeless Veterans.
Transitioning from the nonprofit sector to the corporate arena was challenging for me and when I was a new agent I was appalled at the money-grubbing, selfish attitude of some agents. I decided then - and I feel the same way now - that I would always follow my heart and put my clients first. That promise has served me well because I am never so happy as when I'm helping others.
