I was born and raised in Virginia. After working my way through college, I began my Human Resources career at CCA, a direct mail company nestled in the valley of the Blue Ridge Mountains. From there, I was promoted to Human Resources Manager for Tyco Electronics at a manufacturing plant in Culpeper, Virginia. After securing my MBA from the University of Mary Washington, my next and final HR career move was as Vice President, Human Resources and Administration for Robbins-Gioia, LLC, a large government contractor in the Washington, D.C. area. There, I managed a staff of 23 employees and managed an annual budget of $6M. But the commute, traffic, and high cost of living eventually takes its toll!
In 2008, my husband and I decided to "rightsize" our life and moved to Palm Coast. Here, we found the quality of life that our kids and our family deserved. We exchanged our business suits for flip-flops and have never looked back! Our children have found many local activities to keep them (and us) busy - gymnastics, karate, soccer, dance, basketball and cheerleading. I am an active member of multiple mom groups including MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers), Parkview Moms, and Palm Coast Moms and have extensive knowledge of the schools, beaches, daycares, clubs, activities, parks, churches, and social groups in the area. I am a member of the National Association of Realtors, Florida Realtors, and the Flagler County Association of Realtors, Inc.
I am the biggest advocate of Palm Coast and Flagler County! It has everything - beaches, surfing, fishing, golfing, boating, shopping, hiking, biking, birdwatching, gardening, dancing, and socializing. And as long as you're not looking for snow, Palm Coast satisfies all your weather desires...hot beach days, cool autumn nights, warm winter holidays, and beautiful spring rainbow-filled sun showers. Real estate is affordable, traffic in non-existent, and the streets and neighborhoods are clean and maintained. Palm Coast is a diverse and friendly community of neighbors who have moved to find a quieter, simpler life.
Residents and potential buyers can find a myriad of different housing options within the City of Palm Coast and Flagler County. There are single-family residential homes, riverfront and oceanfront homes, beachside condominiums, equestrian farms, gated communities, apartments, vacant land, new construction, active adult, and intra-coastal saltwater canal homes. There are brand new communities and others that have been established longer. Housing styles are as diverse as the community itself! For business people and those who love to travel and visit, we are close to Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Daytona Beach, and Orlando. Residents and their visitors can take full advantage of day trips to places such as Disney, Kennedy Space Center, Historic St. Augustine, Sea World, Daytona Bike Week, World Golf Hall of Fame, and Universal while still coming home to the peaceful, relaxing environment of Palm Coast. Airports are abundant and accessible - Orlando International (MCO), Jacksonville International (JIA), Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB), and Daytona Beach International Airport (DBIA) are just some of the local ones. Prices are competitive and the airports are easily navigated. And don't forget the best part about living in Florida - RESIDENT DISCOUNTS!
