PERSONAL BACKGROUND

I grew up and attended school during my formative years in Orillia, and have lived here for over 30 years. The advantage for you is my familiarity with Orillia and area.

My children, who were born here, grew up in the Baby Point area of Toronto. We had family cottages on Lake Muskoka, and Go-Home Lake.

I also lived in Vancouver.

 My Mother was born on the family farm in the nearby township of Medonte. Her family were original settlers from England.

My Father was a Torontonian with roots in Scotland.

I am very fortunate therefore, to be able to relate to and appreciate the varied backgrounds of all people.

I have two adult sons of whom I am most proud.

I enjoy nature, people, animals, reading, and learning.

ORILLIA is a unique, welcoming and beautiful city with a special spirit of its own and I feel very fortunate to live here!

 

PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND

I have held my Real Estate License since 1989. I served on the Orillia and District Real Estate Board on the Discipline Committee.

I have extensive experience in New Home Sales.  I have collaborated with Builders in the planning and development of new sites and with the design of  new homes in Orillia and the

surrounding areas.

Real-Estate is in my blood!

My Mother, Edna MacIver was a Realtor for over 30 years in Orillia and area. She was one of the 1st female Presidents of The Orillia and District Real Estate Board. She was valued and was

known for her honesty and integrity.

I have taken this to heart and apply it to my life, both professionally and privately.

Re-Sale Real Estate is currently my main focus, including Residential, Recreational, Rural, and Waterfront.

My business is most rewarding to me with the satisfactory conclusion of a Purchase or Sale for Buyers and Sellers and for my referrals from satisfied Clients!

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

I am a proud member and a 5th year Director on the board of the Kiwanis Club of Orillia.

I am the Chairperson for the Kiwanis High School Scholarships.

Recipient of the George McVeigh Spirit Award 2014.

We are a Charitable-Trust service club of Community Professionals who support our local youth through financial donations by our fund-raising efforts, as well as by sitting on boards in

supervisory  roles, coaching and through the introduction of new programs. Our club is well known for the Orillia Kiwanis Music Festival, The Terrific Kids program for elementary students,

and The Kiwanis Children's Safety Village, to name only a few of our numerous projects.

This group of Professionals  have their fingers on the pulse of the issues concerning our wonderful City of Orillia, and our surrounding communities. Members are a great go-to resource,

who support one another as well as have the city's best interests at heart.

I am a practicing Taoist Tai Chi Student.

As a former  visiting Hospice Orillia Volunteer, I had the privilege of meeting and becoming friends with some extraordinary people.

I enjoy volunteering at Orillia Soldiers' Memorial Hospital, and have done so for over 10 years. 

It is wonderful to give back to the community and to help with like-minded individuals.
