Coming from a large family with four siblings and having moved over 17 times in 6 states by the age of 15, my appreciation for various home styles and architecture began early. Residing in mainly the east and the south in my early years, my family settled in Pasadena rich in its traditional home styles, but unique to California's flavor. We settled into a gorgeous Spanish hacienda that was perfectly suited to our family's spirit. Having now spent the better part of my life in the Pasadena and surrounding areas, I have come to learn and appreciate the distinctive architectural elements that truly set this area apart from the greater Los Angeles metropolitan. I have personally owned three homes here in the San Gabriel Valley and have incorporated and embraced the essence of the Southern California beauty that I have come to know and love into each of my home environments. In so doing, I have developed relationships with a host of professional and reliable residential vendors that are able to provide the necessary support in my real estate dealings. I am fully committed to exceptional listening and communication skills in an effort to really identify with my client's needs and wishes. Fulfilling this commitment will always be the most rewarding aspect of my endeavors as a realtor. I earned a Bachelors of Science Degree in Human Development from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and a Masters Degree in Physical Therapy from Chapman College. Over the last 25 years, I have practiced as a Physical Therapist. I have worked in a variety of settings and have spent five years working with cancer patients at The City of Hope. In addition to my physical therapy career, I have also owned a women's clothing line, designed jewelry which I sold to local boutiques, and have modeled and acted throughout my adult years. This multifaceted approach to life has proven to enhance my respect and reverence for a wide variety of people, cultures and personalities. As I continue to nurture my innate desire to help and serve others, I am in constant pursuit of enriching my interest in home architecture and design. I am honored to be partnering with this dynamic company that assists me in providing multiple options and resources as I dedicate myself to delivering exceptional real estate services.
