As a child people always asked, â€œWhat do you want to be when you grow upâ€? I always answered quickly that I wanted to be a School Counselor. I wanted to help people. I grew up in Duluth, MN to a father who served our community as a Police Officer and a Mom who served the same community as a teacher. It was not surprising that they nurtured that in us kids. After high school I attended the University of MN- Twin Cities and earned my bachelor's in psychology. Following that I moved back to Duluth, my hometown, and finished my schooling at the University of WI- Superior in School Counseling. I was young, ready to change the world and help thousands of students achieve their dreams! For over 20 years I have dedicated myself to just that. I continue to work at a middle school in Cloquet MN. Yes, I said it, middle school, the best part of life that no one would ever go back to! However, I have loved the energy, the challenge, and the weirdness of it all. I love to be a part of those early dreams as they start to figure themselves out. Along with sitting with students in the struggle. So, why now am I working in Real Estate? Well, I continue to love a challenge, I love to listen to dreams and the best part in this line of work is that I will get to see it all happen. I understand that with every transition in life it is both scary and exciting. This is where my counseling skills will come in handy. I will always make sure that I am hearing my clients and doing everything I can to find them that place where they can find peace, create memories, and truly call home. Or to help them say goodbye to a home that holds so many memories. It makes sense, because my heart is still to help others, and this is an exciting fit! Here is to the next 20 years, or more, in Real Estate. As you can see from my journey so far, I do not give up on my dreams and I will do the same for my clients!
