Born and raised in Sterling, Illinois. I came to SIU to go to college and fell in love with the area. After getting my degree, I made the decision to stay in scenic Southern Illinois. I worked as an official court reporter in Vienna, Illinois for most of my career until retiring. I then decided to become a real estate broker and I love it. I am very fortunate to have become affiliated with the best real estate company in the area - Century 21 House of Realty, Inc. My goal is to help as many people as I can find their perfect home in this beautiful area.
