My southern roots run deep. I am as local as they come, born and raised right here in the beautiful Upper Cumberland area. My family has always been in the construction business. I grew up the daughter of a carpenter. I have bought, sold, built and remodeled homes. I have been on all sides of the fence. Real Estate is my life. I was raised simple with strong work ethics. You always treat others the way you want to be treated. From my southern accent, down home hospitality, and plain honesty – what you see is who you get. I guarantee you I will work as hard for you as I do myself. I am not afraid of hard work or a challenge. I work hard so you don’t have to.
I was born and raised here in the Upper Cumberland. My roots in the area go back many generations, and I am raising my kids to appreciate that they come from this great region of the country. My family has run a local tree farm in the Dry Valley area for many years. My formative years in school were spent working on the farm and playing sports. After graduation and while attending Tennessee Tech, I worked for a regional sports based nonprofit serving in our local schools for many years. It would be my pleasure to assist you and your family in finding a new home or rental or selling your existing one.
As a property manager for the past 12 years, I have cared for a private owners’ 150+ apartments, a local 250+ unit luxury community and 100+ unit student complex. Successfully managing each set of property required conquering different challenges and gave me a broad education in the local rental market. Let me put my experience with rental property to work for you as you look to buy, sell or have your investment managed the True Blue Way with honesty and hard work.
Please allow me to tell you a little about myself. I have lived in the Upper Cumberland Area for over 50 years and I have been in real estate since 1990. I serve the entire Upper Cumberland area which includes Sparta, Cookeville, Crossville, Livingston, Baxter, Smithville, Gainesboro, and Monterey.
Family is very important to me. I believe that when families are happy, then everything else will fall into place. “Matching Buyers With Sellers Since 1990″ is my slogan. I am a hardworking fulltime REALTOR who takes pride in my work. My passion is working with families to find their perfect home whether that is their 1st or their 4th home.
During my career as a Realtor, I have been very active in the Upper Cumberland Association of REALTORS. 2002 I served as President, 2003 & 2005 REALTOR of the Year, served on the Board of Directors through 2010 and served as President of the Women’s Council of REALTORS Upper Cumberland Chapter in 2005.
The Upper Cumberland area is truly a beautiful part of the state to live in. With all the State Parks, nearby lakes and beautiful mountains close by, you are sure to see all the benefits to our area. Excellent school systems and family orientated communities will make your family feel right at home. Only 1.5 hours from Nashville, Knoxville, and Chattanooga make us very convenient as well. I look forward to being your Realtor for the Upper Cumberland area.
“I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more luck I have”.
That simple statement really says it all! I’m an experienced real estate agent who works very hard on my clients’ behalf. I believe everybody deserves to be represented by an experienced professional who genuinely cares about their needs when buying or selling real estate. I value honesty, friendliness, professionalism, and reliability, and that is what I consistently provide for my clients. I return phone calls in a timely manner, honestly answer your questions, and quickly address any concerns that arise.
I was born and raised here in the Upper Cumberland area, and know the region well. After graduating high school, I joined the Air Force for a 6 year tour. Because I specialized in the intelligence field, I was assigned to work at the National Security Agency. The years spent in the Air Force taught me a great deal about hard work and determination, and although my military career is behind me now, I still follow the Air Force core values: Excellence, Integrity, and Service before self.
Living for 6 years in the Washington DC area left me yearning for wide open spaces and friendly southern hospitality, so I returned home to enjoy life at a slower pace.
My love of architecture and the great outdoors lead me to pursue a career in real estate. Since 2006 I’ve been providing my clients with the advice, marketing savvy, and negotiation skills needed to get deals closed.
- Certified E-Pro Marketing

I’m looking forward to helping you realize your dreams!
I grew up in the Upper Cumberland; no matter where my travels take me the Upper Cumberland will always be my roots! I graduated from OUR VERY OWN Tennessee Technological University with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration in 2008 and from American Public University in 2018 with my MBA.
