The Northern Neck has always been special to me. I grew up in Heathsville (Northumberland County) and after attending college, getting married, starting a family, and starting my teaching career in Northern Virginia we decided to come "home." While in Northern Virginia I also worked in a financial office, giving me valuable experience in the financial world. In 2004 my husband and I moved to the Northern Neck to raise our boys. I returned to my first career as a school teacher in a local school. Recently I began exploring other opportunities that would give me flexibility to allow me to spend more time with our growing boys. Going into real estate seemed like a natural step. We've renovated two of our own homes and I have fallen in love with the processes behind renovating, restoring — and now selling — homes. I've spent more than half of my life in the Northern Neck and I love helping people find a place here so they can enjoy the area as much as we do.
