I’m an entrepreneur at heart. I have owned and operated businesses since 1996.

I moved from California to the Coeur d'Alene area in 2006 with my family, my amazing three kids, all now grown and I have never looked back.

I have found my happy place here in CdA.

Originally, I grew up in California but made a conscious decision to pursue a slower pace with more outdoor activities in a family friendly atmosphere. We found that here in Coeur d'Alene! I truly love where I live and am happy to share with others.

I would be honored if you'd allow me to help you find your happy place!

All the Best,
