I was born and raised in Delaware. My junior and senior year of high school I left the area to attend Canterbury School in New Milford, Connecticut. I captained two sports (field hockey and ice hockey) and served as a Proctor in my dorm during my senior year at Canterbury. After graduating from Canterbury, I attended the University of Delaware and graduated with a B.A. in English in 2000. I decided that I would remain in Delaware and explore the many career opportunities offered here. I also loved the central location of Delaware, being just 2 hours from New York, 1.5 hours from Washington, D.C., 30 minutes from Philadelphia and a short distance to the Delaware beaches. I began my professional career just after college, when I took a copywriting position in the Marketing Department of a small bank headquartered in downtown Wilmington. I worked there for two years where I quickly moved into a management position within the Marketing Department. While employed at the bank, I began to become interested and involved in the local real estate market by both purchasing and investing in rental properties and also in the renovation of distressed properties. While still working full-time at the bank, I took the real estate licensing classes and exam and obtained my real estate license. I quickly found myself working two separate full-time jobs - something had to give. I left my management position at the bank and never looked back. I dove into real estate full time, allowing all of my energy and effort to flow into what has become a true passion for the business. Having achieved a B.A. in English and with my background in marketing, I have come to realize that I can utilize my skills and studies in the real estate industry.
