A little about me and our brokerage's culture:

I am committed to delivering exceptional customer service. Clear communication and availability is key in the marketplace! "It's All About You..." is not just a tag line - it is our company culture and motto. Our customers have our full attention to ALL the details.

Originally from Davie, FL my family moved to Ocala when I was 12 years old and I consider Ocala my hometown. My family's love of horses and the construction boom brought us to Marion County in the late 80's and both industries continue to influence me today. After spending some time living in the greater NYC area, Mid-West, and Low Country of South Carolina, I returned home in 2009. While working for the City of Ocala as their Cultural Arts Manager, I started investing in residential real estate within the downtown core neighborhoods. In 2016 I decided to pursue real estate as a full-time career and was fortunate to be mentored by Richard Schleicher, founder, and at that time, broker of It's All About You...Real Estate, LLC. In early 2022 I purchased the brokerage with the goal of continuing to develop the brand that Rich created - a specialized, boutique brokerage that offers an unparrelled level of real estate services in North Central Florida with an exceptional network of resources in lending, insurance, and the construction trades.

I am passionate about supporting our community's vibrancy and quality of life through access to the arts, public green spaces, preservation of our natural resources, and recreation opportunities. I am currently serving on the City of Ocala's Vision Focus Group 2050 and the City of Ocala's Ocala Historic Preservation Advisory Board. From childhood through present day I have been an avid equestrian. The perfect day to recharge my spirit starts with a ride on my horse and ends with my husband and I out on the boat, reeling in a redfish while watching the sunset over the Gulf.

Hello! I am proud to have obtained my real estate license in 2023 and I am looking forward to the new opportunities this exciting career will hold. I have been working in the Film & Television Production world for the past 17 years. This industry required me to develop a strong skill-set and I am proud of my attention to details, clear communication, and extensive project management experience and ability to deliver results within milestone date deadlines – all of which are key to achieving the goals of my real estate clients. I have always had a passion for real estate from purchasing my family’s personal homes, competing multiple renovations and even as an owner builder in 2007 and 2019.

I am a Florida native, born and raised in Palm Beach County and moved to Ocala in 2006. My husband was born and raised here in Ocala and I fell in love with the area immediately upon visiting. When I'm not working, you can find me enjoying family time with our animals on our mini farm, hiking and biking the Santos Trailhead, trail riding the Florida Greenway with my Tennessee Walker and boating the many lakes and springs our beautiful area has to offer. I enjoy sharing my knowledge of our community with guests and relocation clients. It is so rewarding to connect them with the many places that make Ocala/Marion County so special.

The needs of purchasing or selling a home is unique to the customer and should be treated as such. I take care in understanding these homes are our most important investment, whether it’s finding your dream home or selling your home, I am committed to giving you the best experience possible. 

No matter your budget, your needs, or your timeline, I would love to be your real estate agent.
