ABOUT ME - CSHP

I have lived in the beautiful city of Colorado Springs since 1992. I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, where I met my husband, a U.S. Air Force officer. Colorado Springs was our final duty station, and we have raised our three daughters here. 

My focus as a Certified Senior Housing Professional (CSHP) is helping seniors and their families with their unique real estate needs. I am a passionate advocate that cares as well as educates and empowers my clients during the process of later-in-life moves.  I know from personal experience that the emotional and logistical challenges can be overwhelming. I can provide information about the resources available to help make your transition as smooth as possible. I offer “concierge” services involved in downsizing and selling your home as well as finding a new one that’s a better fit. I've built a first-class resource team that can help - decluttering, estate liquidation, packing, moving and even organizing your new space. I have also partnered with a Senior Move Manager who can oversee as much or as little of this process as you'd like to delegate. My goal is for my clients to be overjoyed, not overwhelmed by the process.

I also bring to each client and situation a deep level of empathy because I have overseen the care and financial affairs of my mother who battled Alzheimer’s Disease for ten years. I understand how overwhelming it can be to juggle an aging parent’s needs as well as the responsibilities of your own family and career. In addition, my formal education is in psychology and gerontology, and I have 16 yrs of experience in real estate.
