After graduation, I pursued my love for adventure and travel by visiting Australia, Thailand, Kenya, Rwanda, Sweden, Croatia, Costa Rica and many other amazing countries. I learnt a lot from my travels and connected with people from around the world, but I always knew I would end up back home. After meeting my husband, who is from a small town in Saskatchewan, we decided to spend some time in Saskatoon. After years of working, attending the University of Saskatchewan, buying, renovating, and managing personal rental properties, we decided to make the move back to Nanaimo. I have over 15 years’ experience in the customer service industry which includes management, hiring, training, and goal-coaching. I believe my passion for providing a genuine, honest, and fun customer experience, mixed with my love for real estate, will be the key to your stress-free purchase or sale.
