A little about me
These mountains have always been where I’ve called home, I was born and raised right here in Bryson City. In fact, the last six generations of my family have called Swain County their home. I spent 25 years in Asheville, where I raised two kids, and started my professional career in the insurance industry before discovering my passion for real estate. In 2012, I returned to Swain County to marry my high school sweetheart, Robert. One of the things I love most about this area is the distinct seasons. The abundant wildflowers & welcoming birdsongs, spring – summer afternoons spent on Fontana Lake or fly fishing in one of the many beautiful streams of Nantahala Gorge – autumn afternoon drives along the Blue Ridge Parkway revealing endless, breathtaking views of foliage – and the coziness of a log cabin fireplace on a winter night. My love of nature inspired me to become a founding member of the Great Smoky Mountains Chapter of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, which was instrumental in the re-introduction of Elk to their native habitat here in the Great Smoky Mountains. Regardless of where you’re from, I know there is something here that will speak to your soul. For over 20 years, I was a licensed insurance agent before starting my career in real estate back in 2004. So I thoroughly understand the value, and the risks, of owning a home. I have a knack for understanding what each of my clients are looking for and guiding them to their real estate goals. I’m proud to be a multi-million dollar real estate agent, an active member of Carolina Smokies MLS, part of the Association of Realtors. And when I’m not helping my clients find their dream home – you can probably bet that I’m either trying out new recipes in my kitchen, weaving, gardening, or spending time with my husband and our adopted dog, Fiona.
