Born and raised in the farm country of PA, I found my way to Idyllwild while on a climbing spree in the summer of 1977 (via Squaw Valley and LA). My first job in Idyllwild was waitressing at "The Cup" (now The Red Kettle) and "The Nome". Very soon, some local friends opened my eyes to the wonderful world of construction. I got my general contractor's license and found myself being drawn to remodeling "Old Charmers". However, time marched on, and I learned that I needed to work smarter, not harder, and I chose to go into home inspecting and became a CREIA certified home inspector. Now I find my career in real estate to be most rewarding. With 26 years of building and inspection related experience, it is very exciting for me to help those who want to make a life change, either buying or selling in Idyllwild. This wonderful town and community are why I'm still here and I would love to help you in whatever way I can.
