She also loves Coke Icee’s or Chai Tea with Cinnamon Dolce.

She loves this industry and was excited to dive back into it. She loves working with people. As people buy and sell their homes, she loves being a small part of their new journey. You will always find her smiling or laughing because she believes it is contagious and so good for the soul.
