My journey to Maui began at a very early age! Well before I could read I always wanted to look at picture books of tropical fish and marine life. Eventually, I would share with anyone who would listen, "When I grow up, I am going to swim with dolphins in Hawaii!" This was a very big dream for a kid in Michigan.
Fast forward to 2006. After graduating summa cum laude from the University of Michigan, I was fortunate enough to take my first (and only) vacation here to Maui with my parents. While we were having dinner that first night at the iconic Pioneer Inn in Lahaina Town, I just knew that the island was calling me. Armed with two suitcases and a bicycle, my next flight back to Maui two months later was as a brand new resident.
Now I have happily lived in Lahaina for over fifteen years. As a child my parents couldn't keep me out of the water, I would spend as much time as possible in the chilly waters of Lake Superior, and I was a competitive swimmer in high school. Surfing was a natural progression, as well as snorkeling and open water swimming. I've completed both the Maui Channel Swim and the Waikiki Roughwater Swim. When I'm not in the ocean, I also enjoy hiking around the island, yoga, baking, reading a good book, and spending time with my husband and our dog Lucy.
I began my professional career here on Maui in Fine Art Sales then transitioned into Real Estate at the end of 2011. It was another natural progression based on my evolving interests and education. That first year I was awarded the Prudential Iwado Realty Rookie of The Year and worked almost exclusively in Commercial Sales and Leasing. Several years later I have now sold commercial properties, and even more single-family homes and condos, all across the island from Napili to Wailea, Wailuku to Kula, even Hana!
My mission is to help my clients achieve their goals, whether they're buying or selling when the timing is right. I am strongly committed to providing clear, consistent communications and building long-term relationships, and have the diverse sales experience to back it up. I have been consistently ranked in the top 20% of Maui Realtors since 2015. Top 5% of Maui Realtors in 2020 and named a Hawaii Business Magazine Top Producer in 2021. I am a member of the Realtors Association of Maui Board of Directors and hold the position of Director-At-Large. I'm also Chairperson of the Realtors Association of Maui Technology Committee.
