strongest influence on your career? Without the support of my parents, family, and friends I would never have been able to get through the last 26 years. My parents were here for me every day, both emotionally and physically. They taught me how to work hard and gave me the courage and tenacity to persevere through the hard times. My three daughters and husband weremy backbone. My brothers and sisters brought humor and the ability to laugh at myself. It’s important to not take yourself too seriously. What impact has social media / networking had on your business? Real Estate is a people business so face to face networking is the ideal way to obtain the trust required to build long term relationships. What were some of your early goals and did any- thing happen in you career /profession to enhance or change them? My goals grew through the years. Early on my goal was to pay the mortgage and take care of my daughters. Once the girls were out of col- lege, my goal was to meet and help as many clients as I could. What unique qualities and or personality traits do you feel make you most success- ful in your profession? Honesty and integrity have both been important to my suc- cess over the years. What challenges and or obstacles do you feel you needed to overcome to be- come as successful as you are today? I am constantly struggling to learn as much technology as I can to help my office be as ef- ficient as possible, to be able to stay ahead of the curve. What was the most defin- ing moment for you in the profession you are cur- rently in? It was exciting starting this business, I was independent and striking out on my own. But it was dif- ficult and stressful, exciting and exhilarating at the same time. Being able to celebrate 25 years in business last year was truly a milestone. I love the work that I am doing, I go into work everyday more passionate then the last. Tell us a little about your family. My husband and I were married in the Bahamas almost twenty years ago, I have three beautiful children and seven grandchildren who are my world.

How do you manage the work/life balance? Now that the kids are married and in their own homes, of course it’s easier, but when they were younger it was quite a struggle.
