From Corporate America to Ownership in the Mountains
I have been living in Breckenridge, CO with my husband, JJ and our three boys for over fifteen years, and I can still remember what it felt like to move here and call Breckenridge my home. It was surreal. We managed our risk, took a leap of faith, and got out of the rat race to leave the corporate world of Management Consulting and demanding international travel in order to raise our family. I couldn’t believe how peaceful and fun life could be surrounded by the gorgeous landscapes and breathtaking views in Summit County.
I grew a strong appreciation for mountain life and sense of adventure. Outside of the everyday activities like mountain biking, hiking, boating, and of course skiing, I also stepped into entrepreneurship and ownership together with my husband, JJ. We have owned a Bed and Breakfast, Investment Homes, and a Property Management Company in and around Summit County. They have all taught me so much in terms of appreciation, property values, and risk management. In helping hundreds of clients and property owners, and gleaning from our own successes and failures, I have a special vision and eye for investments. We want to pass along those years of experience to your buying and selling experience.

Texas Roots, Colorado Heart
I grew up in Dallas, Texas. After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin McCombs Business School, I traveled the world as a strategic business consultant with Cap Gemini. During my travels, I met my husband, JJ, in the Netherlands. After living in the Netherlands and Wimbledon England, we moved to Breckenridge in 2005 and are raising 3 dynamic boys here in Summit County. Our family revels in everything that Colorado has to offer from sports to camping, to the community we get to call home and raise our children in. After traveling the world, this is the longest I’ve ever lived anywhere! This says a lot about what a special place this is to live, invest, and raise a family. We appreciate the strong, caring community and endless opportunities for adventure.
