Real Estate Broker & Interior Designer
I grew up in Burr Ridge/Hinsdale area which are both Suburbs of Chicago. My family has a Custom Home Building company so I have fond memories of joining my father on construction sites and being exposed to the housing industry from an early age. I have always been fascinated with how things are built and I have a very curious nature which lends itself well to the real estate industry as there is always something to discover and learn. I attended The University of Kansas where I studied literature/English. Once I returned to Chicago, I decided to further my passion for design and I attended Harrington College of Design for Interior Design.
I have been working as an Interior Designer and Home Stager since 2010 and it has coupled nicely with my career in Real Estate. I earned my real estate license shortly after having my second child and hit the ground running as an agent in 2017. Since then my family has grown to a party of five plus our dog, Lou.
Being community based is paramount to my survival as a resident, mother and businesswoman. I’ve lived in Oak Park since 2015. My partner Joel and our three children live in North East Oak Park. I’ve served on PTO and I am currently Co-President of my children’s elementary school garden which functions as an outside classroom and safe space for all, while also donating upwards of 500 lbs. of produce to local food pantries and shelters yearly.
My lifetime background in the homebuilding industry, my career as an Interior Designer, Stager and Real Estate Broker have positioned me uniquely as an expert in multiple facets of the industry.
