Summers spent as a child at my aunt’s camp on Lake Kezar drew me to Maine ten years ago. Memories of those days past, where “the way life should be” prompted me to consider these rocky coastlines and this rich culture my permanent home. This passion for lifestyle excellence you’ll find gives my clients an advantage. With 20 years of marketing and sales experience, I’m confident we’ll find the right choice together. I served most recently as the Director of Marketing and Sales for the exclusive and highly-sought after Highland Green resort community in Topsham, Maine. My previous experience includes organizing successful political campaigns and overseeing marketing and public relations initiatives for a diverse group of Maine businesses. While a native of Illinois, I developed my work ethic and commitment to success as a caddy at the famed Olympia Fields Country Club outside of Chicago. After college I worked on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC for seven years and later in Illinois. In my spare time I enjoy being involved in Big Brothers/Big Sisters, playing golf, boating and hiking the many wonderful trails available in midcoast Maine and greater Portland. Exceeding my clients’ expectations is necessary in today’s real estate business. The benefit: I’ve built long lasting-friendships with extraordinary people who count on me to help them achieve the lifestyle of their dreams.
