Someone very wise told me that my first home probably wouldn’t be my forever home, but it would be an excellent investment. I am so thankful for that advice because it sparked my enthusiasm for sharing the benefits of real estate investing with others. You see, my first home was not my dream, forever home, but upon the sale of that home, I was able to pay off debt, put a down payment on my next home, and add to my savings. With the knowledge and experience I have gained, I want to help you achieve these same milestones and more.
As a born and raised Tennessean and a Nashville resident for almost 20 years, I have seen the extraordinary changes in real estate development over the years. Now as a real estate agent, I work with home buyers and sellers as well as those interested in investment properties. My enthusiasm for helping others and learning about their goals coupled with my attentiveness to their situation and needs help me connect with clients and provide them with the best service possible.
When I'm not assisting my real estate clients, I enjoy spending time with family, talking and networking with entrepreneurs, and traveling around the world.

Favorite Quote: "Time is more valuable than money. You ca get more money, but you cannot get more time." ~ Jim Rohn. This quote emphasizes how precious time is and reminds me to stay present in the moment, seize opportunities as they come, and to cherish the time I have with my family and friends.
Proudest Accomplishment: Embarking on and completing a 6-month, solo trip around the world. It's something I dreamed about doing for a long time, but I couldn't find the "right" time to go. After finally getting the courage to make the trip happen, I explored 20 countries, met new people, forged new friendships, and had the time of my life. The experience enriched my life in countless ways, and now I have increased confidence in my abilities to do anything I set my mind to accomplish.
Hobbies: traveling, reading, and investing
Favorite Nashville Landmark: The Parthenon. It’s located in beautiful Centennial Park in the center of our city, and it’s the only full scale replica of the Parthenon in the world. I find this fact particularly interesting and impressive because I’ve visited the Parthenon in Greece. It's incredible to have such a spectacular representation of ancient history in our backyard.

Favorite Band/Music Album: tie between Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake. Both are insanely talented. Play any of their albums, and it's guaranteed that you'll dance and sing. Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience album is memorable for me because I went to the concert, and he held my hand and sang to me during one of the songs, but hands down the greatest album of all time is Michael Jackson's Thriller.
Favorite Movie: Coming to America
Favorite Actor: This is a tough one because I have several favorites including Patrick Stewart, Denzel Washington, Tom Hanks, Angela Bassett, Kerry Washington, Morgan Freeman, Will Smith, Leonardo DiCaprio, Charlize Theron...
