It wasn’t just hard work and dedication that put me in the top 1% of realtors in all of Mercer County.* Real estate is literally in my DNA! My grandfather was a real estate investor in the bay area of California and amassed a large portfolio of land. This became the family business and I am now the third generation to continue the thread. I have proudly served the Princeton area, representing both buyers and sellers, since 2009.
As a Platinum member of the 2021 NJ Realtors Circle of Excellence, my expertise and professionalism meet the highest standards of my field. A background in the corporate world, then later starting a small business from scratch, helped develop my negotiating skills and hone my knack for creative problem solving. I am known to keep a level head in stressful situations and ease my clients’ concerns with patience and clear communication.
After receiving my BA in economics from the University of Washington in Seattle, I pursued a career in publishing, working for Architectural Digest, The Wall Street Journal and Bon Appetit. It was my passion for cooking that later led me to culinary school in New York City, where I graduated with a Blue Ribbon degree (highest honors) in Culinary Arts. I went on to co-found Twin Hens, Inc., a nationally distributed artisan line of frozen chicken potpies sold in such stores as Whole Foods and Dean & DeLuca.
Along with my husband, a financial writer with Bank of America Merrill Lynch, I have been a resident of the culturally rich community of Princeton for almost 30 years. Our son, now in residency in orthopedic surgery in NYC, was educated here and I became knowledgeable of the wide choice of public and private learning opportunities in the area. I also lend my time to numerous organizations. I currently serve on the Vestry (the governing board) and formerly as Director of Youth Education of Trinity Church. I am an active supporter of the Princeton School Gardens Cooperative and I am a past member of the Master Gardeners of Mercer County. I co-founded a community-based business networking group, Princeton Works, in 2012.
After growing up hiking and skiing the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, I cherish the many outdoor opportunities here in the beautiful Garden State. I rise at dawn most days to row, swim or run.
