I have been a resident of Maine for over 25 years, after spending my youth in Southern New England, I raised my family in Down East Maine and currently reside in the Mid Coast region. With a long family history in boatbuilding and sailing, staying close to the water is most important to me and I feed this passion as a member and volunteer of the Maine Maritime Museum and the Southport Yacht Club. I am an active participant in the local community as a member of the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens and Merrymeeting Board of Realtors. I have recently been able to merge my love for international travel with real estate as a member of the International Real Estate Federation, most commonly known by its French acronym FIABCI. The FIABCI links professionals in the real estate industry in a multi-lingual, multi-cultural, multi-disciplinary network conducting business in countries around the world.
