HOME: The very word that defines how we live life with our most intimate family and friends. I would be honored to be entrusted with your buying and selling needs. I was born in Vineland, New Jersey and went to college in Philadelphia, Pa. graduated with a BFA from Philadelphia College of Art and a Certificate in Painting from Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.
I met my future husband while working at Holiday Inn Penn Centre in downtown Philadelphia. We took a vacation from Philadelphia in winter to visit his family whom had already moved to Daytona Beach. It was winter in Florida and in the 70’s and sunny. We came back to 5 degree weather in Philly and knew that once we graduated from college we should move to the beach.
I got my first Daytona job at the Treasure Island Inn as a desk clerk in 1978. Worked my way up to Front Desk Manager. My sons were born in 1981 and 1983 and I continued to work part time. In 1985 I took a position at La Playa Best Western Resort. I got promoted several times and eventually became the General Manager, overseeing a hotel, restaurant, bars and banquet facilities until 2000. I found my next position at Fairfield Resorts that was bought out by Wyndham Vacation Ownership. I joined as an agent was promoted to become the Welcome Center Manager. I decided to get a Real Estate license to possibly sell timeshares but changed my mind and didn’t go in that direction.
In 2008 when the Great Recession hit my position at Wyndham was eliminated. An opportunity to be the General Manager at an Elite Hospitality Resort presented itself. In 2011 at a social event I met a Broker who invited me to his brokerage. After realizing that the skills I have developed in the hospitality and service business transferred cohesively into what is expected of an agent, I accepted the invitation. I guess I’ve always been at the right place at the right time and in 2019 I find myself at Oceans Luxury Full Service Realty.
