I was born and raised in West Los Angeles. I worked with special needs children through the Los Angeles Unified School District for two years, then spent ten years working at the University of Southern California (USC) in the School of Engineering. I moved to Northern Virginia in 1999. Once my children started school and I was ready to rejoin the workforce, a good friend of mine (who happened to be a Realtor) asked me to work with her. I became a Realtor in 2006 and instantly fell in love with the profession. I loves working with people and helping them to achieve their goals.
