About Me

As a full-time Realtor® since 2006 in the Coachella Valley, I have enjoyed bringing together a wide variety of people and properties. I work with both sellers and buyers of real estate properties, including  luxury estates, condos, land, investment properties. I have the experience to successfully complete real estate transactions to my clients' satisfaction.

When I'm not doing real estate activities, I enjoy outdoor activities, cultural events and traveling inside and outside the USA.  Some of the local organizations I have been involved with include Loving All Animals, Pegasus Therapeutic Riding Center, The Living Desert, and the Palm Springs Art Museum.

I am an active member of the California Desert Association of Realtors, California Association of Realtors, and National Association of Realtors.

I am also a Certified Probate and Trust Specialist.

Before becoming a Realtor®, I worked for many years as an Outside Sales Representative for top printing companies in the San Francisco Bay Area, selling all kinds of high-end marketing materials to a wide variety of clients, including universities and museums, small businesses and corporations, advertising agencies and graphic design firms, and more.
Having BFA and an MFA degrees from Massachusetts Collage Art, and having completed Interior Design classes at UC Berkeley Extension, I have a natural and trained eye for design and can offer advice for staging properties if needed. I have professionals whom I can recommend to my clients for interior design and staging, and for other home services if needed.
As a world traveler, I enjoy meeting a wide variety of people and learning of their cultures. There are so many animal lovers here, especially dog lovers! I often enjoy taking my doggie Cupcake with me and he is welcome in many places.

As an advocate for wildlife conservation, I wrote, illustrated and published a children's book entitled "Doodles the Dodo" (see www.DoodlesTheDodo.com for more info).
My favorite activities are myriad! There are polo matches, art walks and shows, creating art, shopping, dining out, farmer’s markets, vintage and exotic car shows, hiking, biking, swimming, fashion shows, museums, wine tastings, film festivals, music festivals and more.
