I have the know-how you need.



DRE #01942797


When I was seven years old, I lived in Southern California, across the street from a girl who owned a pony. As any seven-year-old girl would probably tell you, all I wanted to do was ride that pony. I would ask the neighbor girl every time I saw her, and one day, she finally agreed on one condition: that I first jump out of her second-story window and into the big pile of sand below- ten times. It was a daunting task, but I was committed to my dream.


Unfortunately (or perhaps not, depending on your perspective), my mother returned home after I'd made a few jumps and discovered what I was doing. I never did get to ride that pony. But my commitment to the idea remained, and my parents bought me a horse of my own when we moved to Woodside a few years later. I got bucked off daily, and at one point, tossed into a water trough! But I kept getting back on. Looking back, I'm not even sure what made me stick with it-I just loved that horse!


The story above describes how in all aspects of my life, I strive for excellence, and I'm always looking for ways to grow. Before coming to the real estate field, I competed dressage show horses for 24 years at the national and international levels. I owned and operated my own training business with six employees. I hold a BA in psychology and a Master’s degree in clinical counseling, addictions, and industrial/organizational psychology.


I am currently working on a Ph.D. in clinical psychology. In my spare time, I shoot competitively in USPSA and Multi gun, I am an avid hiker, I am a partner in a 501c3 horse rescue, am very involved in dog rescue and currently have five dogs, and I work part-time for two organizations that work with trauma and addictions clients. I am a New York native but have called the San Francisco Bay Area home for over 30 years. I am extremely familiar with all of the specific nuances of the areas around San Francisco. I work with all clients from first time home buyers to specialty equestrian properties. When it comes to real estate agents, you have many to choose from, but I would love nothing more than to lend my knowledge and experience toward helping you with your real estate endeavors. I am incredibly organized and responsive, and I like to win, which means I will negotiate the best deal possible for you!!
