The islands have been my home for 40 years. My first career as a spa therapist took me across Europe for my secondary education in advanced wellness principles of Esthetics, Aromatherapy, Thallassotherapy, Balneotherapy, Manual Lymph Drainage, nutrition, during which it rewarded me with 25 years of empowering clients and employees of my day spa to look good, feel great, to be more and do more. Today I integrate that same nurturing spirit and commitment to people as a Broker with Hawai'i Life, advising my clients in home ownership and investment.

For me real estate is about people first. My drive to fulfill a client's dreams and plans begins with listening to their goals, then partnering with them to do whatever it takes to achieve them. Sellers benefit from my effective marketing and strong Broker relationships to attract the best real Buyer who will successfully close; my reputation for reDesign and staging services to add color, style & curb appeal contribute to a swift sale at top dollar. Buyers can expect tenacious research, market expertise and savvy negotiation skills when purchasing their property with me. My team is your team, for a smooth transaction, and beyond. Clients often comment that their experience was ... "easy and profitable", "... a complete package".

I love the sea for all it offers us, especially its restorative benefits, so it is natural that I specialize in O'ahu's oceanside neighborhoods. Whether counseling on our island flood zones, details to acquiring shoreline certification or understanding beachfront building setbacks, I am your resource. If you want an ocean view condo or home, I am your gal. I also enjoy sharing stories of Hawaiian history and culture relative to our land, its people and lifestyles. You will find me to be meticulous, focused and insightful, dedicated to exceptional care of clients and colleagues alike.

As an active Rotarian I support eradicating homelessness, childhood literacy and the arts in our local and global communities through my time, travel and treasure. I am a Director on the Board of Hawai‘i Life Charitable Fund, responsible for annual grants to statewide non-profit organizations serving our citizens and environment. Passionate about architecture and art, I also paint and embellish small furniture as unique art pieces. Swimming, friends, a good novel and travel round out my joyful island life!
