“It is a great pleasure to help new residents feel comfortable and at home.”

Empowered to Find a Home

I have lived and raised my family in Jefferson County, WV, for almost 20 years. I have taught at both Shepherd University and in the public schools. This is a dynamic, involved, diverse community with fabulous opportunities for outdoor recreation on land and water. It is a great pleasure to share my enthusiasm for this community and to help new residents feel comfortable and at home.

Many years ago, I started in real estate as an investor and property manager in Florida and Illinois, so I know the challenges of negotiating the process of owning and managing property. Becoming a Realtor was like coming home—a new way to see a long-familiar and exciting world.  My favorite part of being a Realtor is the education process – helping people have peace of mind while they buy their dream home.

My background is in education with an undergraduate degree from Carleton College and a Ph.D. in English Rhetoric from the University of Minnesota. Part of the task of education is making people feel comfortable and appreciated so they are empowered to learn and grow in life. My work at Dandridge is similar in that I help our clients find the home that makes them light up and gives them energy and peace of mind so they can be their best selves.
