I am proud to call Salmon Arm home. I grew up in Salmon Arm, and after graduation I moved to Victoria, BC for 10 years. I attended the University of Victoria and completed a B.Sc. in Biology and then a Masters in Forest Entomology from UBC.
As with many Salmon Arm locals, my husband and I were drawn back to Salmon Arm. I obtained my Real Estate license in 2000 and went on to become licensed as an Associate Broker in 2004. With over 18 years experience as a Realtor, and a background in technical writing and public speaking, I have the experience, expertise and local knowledge to successfully negotiate for my clients.
Salmon Arm has been the perfect place to raise a family and we enjoy the fabulous four-season environment. We love skiing, mountain biking and exploring the shores of Shuswap Lake.
Being involved with the community is important to me. I volunteer on the Board of Directors for the Shuswap Cycling Club and organize a yearly cyclocross race. From April to September I volunteer weekly with the Skookum Junior Mountain Bike Ride where myself and other parents lead groups of young mountain bikers. I am passionate about supporting and encouraging kids to have fun on bikes while gaining skills and confidence. I support the Shuswap Trail Alliance, Sockeyes Swim Club and various local organizations thru 'Women Who Wine (WwW)- but do something about it!'. At our December 2018 WwW event we raised over $11,800 which was shared between the SAFE Society to support their PEACE Program, the Salmon Arm Rescue Unit and NOSBIS (North Okanagan Shuswap Brain Injury Society).
I am extremely fortunate to live, work and play in the beautiful Shuswap. I would love to work with you to show you how owning your own piece of Paradise can be within your reach. I am passionate about helping my clients succeed and want to show you how real estate transactions can be enjoyable so that you can relax knowing you have made the best move for you and your family.
I look forward to helping you find a new home in this area or selling your existing home. Feel free to call, text or email to connect with me!
