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.
