ClientCare@GrandRealtyGroup.com

I was a stay-at-home mom for our two boys for 9 years until our youngest son started first grade when I began my journey here at Grand Realty Group as the Client Care Manager.

I grew up in the small town of Ringwood and graduated from Johnsburg High School and later graduated from Harper College with a degree in Interior Design. Outside of running the office I use my design experience in choosing permanent finishes for rehabs and remodels for our clients. I select anything from paint and carpet colors to entire kitchens or complete property makeovers. Outside of the office, I’m very involved with our boys, their activities, their education and currently serve on their school’s Board of Education at Gavin District #37.
