I was born and raised in Boulder, Colorado but my heart and home has been in New Orleans since 2014. My eclectic work background has given me a unique understanding of client needs, housing, community, and business. Years spent working in the service industry managing restaurants and bars, coupled with over 10 years working at a homeless shelter helped me hone a unique set of communication skills that I still rely on daily.
At the age of 23 I was given the life-changing opportunity to own a Habitat for Humanity home. I spent over 500 hours doing sweat equity to build my house from the ground up. This sparked an interest in construction, renovation, and real estate. Also, it gave me a deep sense of pride that I had helped create my family’s future home. The stability of owning my own home allowed me to finish my undergraduate degree at the University of Colorado, Boulder with a B.A. in Psychology. From my work at the homeless shelter I had an interest in doing social justice law and chose to attend Tulane Law knowing I wanted to live in New Orleans.
During my time in law school, I bought a historical home and spent the next 3 years renovating it. The home was a double, so I rented out the other side as a short-term rental to help pay the mortgage. I quickly found that managing short term-rentals was a natural use of my skills acquired earlier in life. By word of mouth through recommendations from friends my short-term property management business grew exponentially. After graduation from Law School in 2018 I obtained my Realtor’s license and expanded my property management business to include leasing and home sales. My goal is to be able to provide clients with services for all housing options whether that be short-term renting, leasing, home ownership, investment properties, or property management
