About Me - A Little Personal Background

I was born and raised in Oshawa.  My parents had a cottage in the Campbellford area where we spent a lot of time while I was growing up.  A trip to the Quinte Mall from the cottage was a huge event!  Every weekend, summer holiday and time between Christmas and New Years was spent there.  Eventually I moved to Whitby for 14 years where I had 3 amazing children.  As big life-changing events happen once in awhile, I found myself moving once again, this time to Brooklin (North Whitby) where I stayed for 6 years.  Well, what do you know?  Another big life change and another move, this time to Belleville.  Funny looking back now, my parents cottage really wasn't too far away from where I now live.  As soon as we moved here, I felt like I was home and then discovered that my grandmother had been born in Waupoos and her family raised in Picton.

 

My husband and I fell in love with the Quinte area - as did our 3 Border Collies!  Our new home here is our sanctuary.  Our piece of heaven.  In all the places I've lived, I truly cannot say I've ever had a home that feels like it hugs me when I walk through the door.  As your agent, I would absolutely love to find a home that has the same effect for you.

 

About Me - My Career, Then and Now

My career spans many years and many different positions.  I started off as an office clerk at the City of Oshawa which I absolutely loved.  I was then offered a Data Operations position at EDS (now Hewlett Packard) which eventually landed me a Problem and Change Management role at IBM in Markham where I stayed for 11 years.  Outsourcing started to become rampant at that time and suddenly one of those big life changes was presented to me.  I decided to step away from the Corporate Tech world and try my hand at Direct Sales with a Canadian company called Epicure.  In just a few years I had built my own little empire of over 200 Direct Sales team members and was doing extremely well.  I enjoyed the travel and the rewards in this job, but it just wasn't enough.  I then moved to another Direct Sales company with the task of growing their business across Canada.  While the job was fulfilling, the company had bitten off more than they could chew, so I found myself once again looking for "what's next?"

 

This is when my husband and I moved to Roslin.  While going back to Direct Sales was always an option, I knew in my heart it wasn't where I needed to be.  While working locally in a management position, I decided to chase my dream and become a Real Estate Agent.  It is a perfect combination of all my skills;  using technology for communication, information and marketing, professionalism with everyone I work with and my sales experience to really help people get what they want and need.

 

About Me - Closing Comments

I personally have a lot to bring to the table, but also am backed by an amazing team at Century 21®.  You will not be disappointed.  I have been through several sells, purchases and moves myself and have experienced some frustrations along the way with the process.  Being aware of these things and how I felt, I can avoid all that and make this the best possible experience for you.  And that's what matters to me.
