Originally, I come from the northwest part of New Jersey, where I grew up, spending summers at the Jersey Shore (Belmar) and the rest of the year in Kinnelon. I attended Ramapo College in Mahwah, NJ, and graduated with a BA in Comparative Literature. I have lived in San Diego, California; Durango, Colorado; Providence, Rhode Island and St Louis, MO. My husband and I moved here in 1994 from St Louis, with our five children – a daunting experience! But we all fell in love with Austin. We have lived here since 1994 and live in Northwest Austin, in the Canyon Creek subdivision.
I have been involved in many organizations since I moved here – Church, PTA, Girls Scouts, Boy Scouts – but my favorite is USA Swimming. I organized and ran a USA swim club for nine years and served as a USA Swimming Official and on the South Texas Officials Swim Committee. (My two youngest children swam varsity for Westwood High School and I volunteered as an Official for the team)
I am, when I have time, an avid needle worker and quilter, in addition to reading anything and everything, watching movies, and spending time with my children. Oh, yes, I even manage to spend time with my husband as well, who has supported me in my endeavors all these 25 years!
My latest project is rescuing two beautiful Irish Wolfhounds. I belong to the Texas Irish Wolfhound Rescue Group. They are Mother (Brie) and son (Murphy,) both unduly traumatized – it is like watching a flower bloom as they get better every day!
I am thrilled to be a part of the JB Goodwin family! I cannot think of a better place to work and help our clients with their Real Estate transactions. Especially in my new capacity of the Northwest Office Sales and Leasing Manager, as I can offer help, not only to my clients, but to my fellow agents as well.
