I have over 15 years experience in real estate and many years as an entrepreneur. With an Associates Degree in Paralegal Studies and a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration, I spend most of my time focused on finding homes for clients, assisting the elderly, veterans and single mothers, as a specialty. I’m a licensed Realtor in Michigan and Georgia, and also a member of The National Association of Realtors, The Women’s Council of Realtors and a member of the Housing and Diversity Committee with the GA Board of Realtors. I regularly support the Atlanta and Detroit communities through volunteering and other mentoring services. Raised in Detroit, my heart always remains here and my goal is to be a part of the growing revitalization of this city.
