  • I began my residential real estate career with Cottingham Chalk in 1995. From the beginning, I have appreciated the firm’s commitment to excellence in service, high professional standards and warm family environment.

  • I love Charlotte’s weather and seriously the Carolina blue sky. The fact that the sun shines almost all the time and is never away too long. I believe that one of the reasons Charlotte is such a welcoming city is the fact that the moderate weather makes it so easy to be out and about all the time almost anytime.

  • My home sweet home. I love the nest we’ve built. We’ve road tripped 35,000 miles, on the ground through 47 of our 50 states (Hawaii, New Mexico and Oklahoma yet to be covered) plus explored Iceland, Continental Europe, Canada and Mexico. Not to mention I love meeting new people and trying new things. But, my heart is the most happy here in my chosen home with my favorite people.

  • Anyone that knows me knows I love yoga. It’s the focus on centering, perspective and calm.

  • When I went to college the answering machine did not exist – so you either had to stay in your room and wait for a call or hope that your roommate would actually write down a message.


I grew up in Richmond, Virginia. After graduating from Virginia Tech, I moved to Raleigh, NC. I worked in residential property management for my first 10 years post college. It was this career that brought me to Charlotte, specifically Charlotte’s Fourth Ward.

I loved living Uptown, it was just beginning to bloom. Sundays were so quiet that you could roller blade down the middle of the streets, and we often did. The Panthers came in 1993 and it was still a few more years until the stadium was built. By 1995, it was time for me to claim Charlotte as my permanent home and change my career to residential real estate sales. I joined Cottingham Chalk.

After living Uptown for four years, it was time for a change and, yes, I did a complete flip and moved to Waxhaw, Union County. I loved that too! At the time, Providence Road was still two lanes south of Fairview and if I remember correctly there were maybe two stop lights between Fairview and the railroad tracks in downtown Waxhaw. It was an easy commute to South Park.

And finally, for the past 19 years I’ve lived in South Charlotte. I love the accessibility and it’s the perfect compromise between my Urban and Rural heart.

My point with the above history is: I love Charlotte, from Uptown to Waxhaw and everywhere in-between. These are the areas I know in my heart like the back of my hand.
