EMPATHY, ARRANGER, LEARNER, ADAPTABILITY, INCLUDER
I was born and raised in West Texas and graduated from College in 1984 with a degree in Real Estate Finance and obtained my first real estate license. I worked in residential Real Estate in Austin, Texas and later in La Jolla, CA.
In 1994 my I started what would become a 25 year journey in Bed and Breakfast ownership and management. Over the course of those years we owned and / or operated 5 different Inns ranging from 7 rooms to 37 rooms with restaurants. In 2001 my Innkeeping career brought me to Asheville. I have done start up Inns, complete renovations, Victorian, Country Lodge, Elegant Boutique and Traditional Inns. In 2005 I started working in Inn Brokerage and Consulting and continue to do so to this day, while handling luxury residential properties as well.
I love cooking and entertaining home, and International Travel. I maintain a residence in Mexico and love the Mexican Culture and way of life.
