I was born and raised in Upstate New York and have been on the move since. I graduated from Mercyhurst University in Erie, PA with a degree in Hotel, Restaurant, Institutional Management and was ready to make moves.  Needing to thaw out from years in the cold country, I went down to Mile Marker 1 (Key West, Florida), then back up north to The Windy City (Chicago, IL), before heading east to Big Apple (NYC) and finally decided to call Charlotte home in 2018.  I have over a decade of experience in the hospitality industry, which includes event planning, sales management and business development but most importantly PEOPLE!  Building relationships and getting to know someone over a cup of coffee or glass of wine is fun for me – so don’t be surprised if I ask you 20 questions when first meeting you – I’m just excited!

While I have visited my family in Charlotte for years (I have two sisters that live here), once I relocated I found myself really impressed with and interested in the growth of Charlotte and the overall real estate boom.  I started going to open houses on the weekends to check out the beautiful new homes and remodeled classics in neighborhoods I had been familiar with but also the up and coming areas.  The more time I spent talking to the hosting agents (remember – I love asking questions to new people!) I could feel this interest I had turning into something greater – a real desire to be part of an exciting time in Charlotte real estate. When I was offered the opportunity to join Savvy + Co Real Estate, I couldn’t have been more excited to take my first step into the industry with such a reputable real estate agency.
