I am a lifelong Ulster County resident with family roots dating back to farming in Marbletown, in the 1600s. I grew up in Stone Ridge, and spent much of my time either in my grandmother’s kitchen or exploring our homestead property and the remnants of the family farm that ceased operation in the 1960s. I appreciated at a young age all that Ulster County has to offer, the rich heritage, the community, the landscape, and realize now, more than ever how lucky I am to call this place my home.
After graduating high school at Rondout Valley I worked with local photographer, Jim Smith, and quickly understood what it takes to run a successful small business. Our work together brought us in and out of NYC, to Canada, Europe and the Caribbean. I learned about people and the importance of strong relationships in business, and in life. Working in numerous cities throughout the US was especially rewarding. I experienced what a diverse culture we have here in the states, and only through my travels did I truly realize what idyllic beauty lies here at home in Ulster County.
In 2008, I earned a degree in Automotive Technology from Colombia/Greene Community College and started a new career in the auto industry. My passion for all things automotive, my experience in business and with people quickly manifested into a service management job at Prestige Toyota in Kingston, NY. I very much enjoyed developing a large customer base and servicing the greater communities automotive needs at Toyota.
Now, with a vast knowledge of the area, real estate is an exciting progression for me. I enjoy working in my home town with people I know, and always look forward to meeting new clients. For buyers, sellers and investors alike, helping clients achieve their real estate goals is my purpose and my pleasure.
