I've spent more than 36 years in the Washington, D.C. area building a distinguished career as a journalist, public affairs consultant, lobbyist, and Emmy Award-winning producer of public service programming. Through my volunteer work with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, American Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity, local food banks and Project Hope, I've helped to meet the needs of people in my own community and abroad. I've also coached girls soccer in No. VA for 12 seasons - one of my passions!
My unique real estate interest merges modern and historic design styles, influenced by my own home-buying experiences in the United States and Europe, and has led to several of my homes being featured in major style and architectural magazines. These personal experiences of buying and renovating properties enhance my ability to represent distinctive homes and our exceptional clients.

2501 Pennsylvania Avenue NW UNIT PH2B
Washington, DC 20037
Located in the heart of Washingtonâs glitzy West End, 2501 Penn is a boutique luxury condominium emulating those from pre-war times lining New Yorkâs Fifth Avenue. Penthouse 2B sits at the apex of the handful of luxury units, boasting an incredible 4,500 square feet of style, elegance, and a hint of historical charm spread across two ethereal levels. More akin to Manhattanâs so-called âmansions in the sky,â one steps off a private elevator into a gracious foyer anchored by a stunning glass, metal, and wood staircase framed by a double height window wall. Ebonized hardwood floors flow throughout, while four exposures introduce natural light from all sides throughout the day, highlighting the world-class interior design curated by internationally renowned interior designer Barry Dixon. The main level contains all of the residenceâs public and living areas, including the formal living room itself, with a stunning backlit onyx wall, gas fireplace, coffered ceiling, and private terrace. A formal dining room and proper, paneled library with custom built-ins each boast their own fireplace, and serve as a segway into the homeâs informal areas. The family room is spacious yet intimate, featuring a second private terrace framed with original 19th century balusters and accessed through double glass doors. Meanwhile, the kitchen rivals that of any luxury detached home, with its oversized center island, carrara marble countertops, 48-inch Thermador gas range, and separate column refrigerator/freezer. At the top of the staircase, a conveniently located upper level laundry room introduces three spacious bedroom suites. The primary suite boasts access to a terrace which spans the entire length of the upper level, offering stunning views, in addition to a separate sitting area. Twin walk-in dressing rooms as well as a sumptuous limestone bath with twin vanities, jetted tub, and glass walk-in shower creates a home away from home. The two additional bedrooms are ample in scale and feature premium amenities such as ensuite baths, walk-in closets, and terrace access. A proper smart home, conveniences such as intelligent climate control, built-in audio, and motorized shades combine with rare city amenities such as 3-car garage parking, private storage, and a 24-hour front desk concierge to create a distinctive offering. Steps away from Georgetown, Foggy Bottom, and the waterfront, 2501 Penn is situated mere minutes from the cityâs finest shopping, dining, and entertainment, making Penthouse 2B a rare blend of space, location, and luxury for the most discerning buyer.
