What sets you apart from other REALTORS®? What are your greatest strengths as a real estate agent?
I'm a practical but artsy realtor who has moved several times over the last few years. So, I know first hand the stresses, obstacles, and issues that can arise as you go through the buying and selling process.

Are you involved in any trade/civic or community organizations? If yes, please explain.
I am a Trinity High School Emerald Sponsor and actively involved in Trinity's Celebration. I also serve with the American Lung Association Annual Gala Board. And, with any other free time, I serve as a Co-leader for my daughters Girl Scout Troop.

Tell us about your immediate family. Who are they? Do you enjoy spending time together? If so, what do you do together?
My husband John (Chicago native) and I have been married Since October, 2000. We have two sons and one daughter. Our sons are at Trinity High School and play Rugby and Ice Hockey. Our daughter is a singer in choir and musical theater. Juggling a full-time career and 3 teenagers is chaotic but I wouldn't trade it for the world!

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? Why do you enjoy this?
I have founded LouisvilleModern.org, a community dedicated to the awareness, appreciation and stewardship of Louisville's Mid-century and Modern architecture and design.

Am the mother of a child cancer survivor. Our daughter was diagnosed with Nephroblastoma (Wilms' Tumor) at 2 1/2 years old. She is now cancer free! Her diagnosis and treatment brought out family even closer and has taught us to give thanks everyday for our blessings.

Do you have a motto/words to live by? If yes, what?
