I’ve always dreamed of having my own real estate company. Now that it’s here, it just proves that passion, dedication, and hard work can turn your dreams into reality. I received my real estate license in 1998 and I have been working full time as a Realtor since 2001. Before I put up Southern Sierra Real Estate, I amassed a wealth of experience at other real estate companies.

My clients know me as someone who puts their needs first. They know my determination to find the perfect Southern Sierra home suited to their needs.

Feel free to call me if you have any questions about the properties located in the Giant Sequoia National Monument of Southern Sierra. You can contact me at 559.542.1500 or email me at

I’m a Realtor Associate who just loves the Southern Sierra. I moved to Camp Nelson in 1996 and bought my first mountain home with my husband after falling in love with the area. I earned my real estate license in 2004 and previously worked as an office manager for a real estate office.

I am passionate about Southern Sierra Nevada. I want people to experience the priceless feeling of being surrounded by so much beauty. Nothing thrills me more than seeking out the perfect vacation home that conforms to my client’s wish list. In my downtime, I enjoy cross-country skiing and exploring more of this majestic area.

Call me the company’s resident outdoor adventurer. I’m a Realtor Associate and the perfect person to ask about the outdoor activities in Southern Sierra. After getting discharged from the Army Reserves, I moved to the Southern Sierra Nevada and learned the building trade for custom residential homes. I received my home inspection certification in 2008 and my real estate license in 2015.

My energy for the outdoors matches the energy I give to my clients. I revel in meeting new people and being able to find their dream vacation home in Southern Sierra.

When I’m not busy selling real estate, I’m usually enjoying the Southern Sierra great outdoors. You can catch me mountain biking, snowboarding, fishing, or rock climbing.
