I was born in Palmdale, California and moved to Inglis, Florida at the age of five. From Inglis I moved to Crystal River where I attended high school and in post I was between Ocala, FL and Dunnellon, FL. At 24, I moved to Gainesville. In the time I’ve lived here, I’ve discovered much about myself as an individual and have been able to plant myself here to grow in ways that I could not have imagined. The blend of culture, growth, and love sustains this city and I’m proud to call it home.
Outside of Real Estate, I work at The University of Florida in Pathology. In 2020 I worked with a small team that did a large portion of the COVID-19 testing in Central Florida. The whole pandemic was a challenge to say the least, but being able to be part of the solution made it all worth while.
In my spare time I enjoy developing my body and mind through working out at the gym, reading, and reflecting through journalling. I am also very passionate about music as I play guitar and sing. In high school I was part of the Interact Club, a Rotary sponsored which fueled my respect and appreciation for volunteering. That experience brought me to The Boys and Girls Club of America where I assisted in coordinating Keystone Conferences that help youth develop themselves professionally as well as stand as a pillar of influence within their communities. I’ve always aimed to leave a positive impression in everything I do. Through my experiences, I’ve learned that life is about using one’s gifts and experiences (great and not so great) to uncover and shape the path. My path has taken me many places that have influenced my perspective on life.
Personal Training taught me resilience and patience. Fitness teaches us that each and every time you are knocked down, you have a choice whether or not you will stay down. Graphic design and social media development have taught me that humans are social creatures and that the power of connection actualizes accomplishments larger than ourselves. With these concepts compounded with years of customer service under my belt, my path has brought me to a career in Real Estate.
I am inspired every day by the interactions I have with people and believe we are a product of our decisions, habits and focuses; and what we choose to focus on is a what we ultimately create.
As a new agent, I am eager to connect with my clients, understand their goals and aspirations and to ultimately make them an actualization. I look forward to connecting and making your real estate experience as enjoyable as possible.
