I was born and raised in Wyoming, graduated from Smith College, and relocated to Vail from Los Angeles, where I raised two boys, refurbished two historic home and established a record of success in public affairs and fundraising, representing such diverse non-profit and corporate interests as Hughes Aircraft Company, the Hollywood Bowl, the Westchester/LAX Chamber of Commerce, the California Manufacturers Association, and the Los Angeles Olympic Organizing Committee. As an advisor to senior management on public policy issues of land use, taxation and strategic community relations, I demonstrated an ability to bridge diverse viewpoints in order to achieve my clients’ goals.

As a full-time Realtor in Vail, I am a committed advocate of my clients’ goals and needs. I bring to the table a world of knowledge from my former experience, including effective negotiation across a number of contexts.

In this day and age of impersonal electronics communications and web clicks, I never lose sight of the fact that every successful transaction has its basis in personal aspirations and personal relationships. I view the work I do as a privilege—an opportunity to partner with another to help them realize their important personal goals. I am of the firm belief that building solid relationships with clients and colleagues is the foundation of success.

Within the real estate industry, I have achieved the designation of Certified Negotiating Expert (CNE), and hold a membership in Who’s Who in Luxury Real estate. For two years, I represented the Vail Board of Realtors on the Government Affairs Committee of the Colorado Association of Realtors.

I am an active in the community, serving on the Western Regional Committee of the Women’s Foundation of Colorado, on the Board of Directors for the Vail Symposium, and as a volunteer for the Interfaith Community Center, Betty Ford Gardens and Habitat for Humanity.

Personal: I was first introduced to Vail at the age of 9, and have been enchanted ever since. I’m an avid skier (formerly a Vail Resorts/PSIA-certified ski instructor), a tennis enthusiast, music lover and erstwhile performer. I continue to be inspired by and renewed in these beautiful mountains.
