Year started: 1988

How did you get started in real estate? I was the director of development for the local chapter of a national health association. I loved fundraising, working with people toward a goal and making it all happen - but not-for-profit was creating a lack of profit in my bank account. My husband and I had just sold his town house and my condo and bought a single-family home in Falls Church. I really enjoyed the experience, the market was good, and I decided to take my marketing skills into real estate.

How long have you been with the current company? Re/Max Allegiance since 2003 and Re/Max since 1995

Licenses and designations: I am an associate broker and a CRS (certified residential specialist), GRI (graduate, Realtor Institute) and CDPE (certified distressed property expert). I also am a certified mentor.

Associations: Northern Virginia Association of Realtors

Awards: NVAR Lifetime Multimillion Dollar Club

Greatest accomplishment in the past 12 months: After selling for so many years, I felt I wanted to give more to the industry that has given so much to me. I currently list, sell, manage and train for Re/Max Allegiance. I love the diversity that all the different jobs bring. Last year, I decided to get more involved with my local and state associations. I was appointed chairman of the NVAR Grievance Committee, received a three-year appointment to the Fairfax Economic Advisory Committee, was appointed to numerous committees at the Virginia Association of Realtors, and in October, I received the highest honor from my peers: I was elected to the NVAR board of directors. Being involved at this level has taught me much about my community and my profession. When I speak with clients or other Realtors, I can offer insight into a much bigger picture, which is what we really need to focus on now, when times are tough.

Area of specialty: I work the Interstate-66 corridor and west: Arlington, western Fairfax and Loudoun counties.
