Come experience a different world - a place that becomes part of your heart and calls you to come back as often as possible. I am sure you can already tell that it has become part of mine. I grew up in a small town in Southern Ohio nestled in the valley alongside the river. I spent many of my summers as a teenager coming to Hatteras. Although I have seen many changes come to our little island, it has never lost its charm. With its laid back, close knit community feeling, there is so much our island has to offer.

I have been blessed to call Hatteras Island my home for nearly 24 years. My family has grown during that time. I am the mother of four amazing children ranging in ages, the oldest is in the Air Force and the youngest is in elementary school. It has been a joy to watch them all grow, each with their own unique personalities and interests. I enjoy being active in the community, being the troop leader for Girl Scouts to being a member of the Hatteras Island CERT team.

Over the years, I have held various positions in the community. I have worked in the service industry for years and when the opportunity came to become involved in real estate, I gave it my all to see that dream happen. Here I am finally experiencing that dream becoming a reality. Life is truly an adventure. Sometimes you just have to make that leap of faith.

Let me help you take that leap in your search for a home on Hatteras Island. I would like to offer my knowledge of real estate and the area to guide you. Whether you are ready to start looking now, or you are just interested in getting comfortable with the market, I am happy to answer any questions you might have, and I am looking forward to helping you find your little piece of paradise.

I am excited to be able to share such a unique and beautiful place with you. Whether you're interested in surfing, kite boarding, wind surfing, taking a leisurely bike ride or any of the many activities we have to offer, there is fun to be had by all. Between the amazing sunrises and the colorful sunsets, Hatteras Island is a special place to relax with family and friends, creating fond memories to look back on for a lifetime.

I grew up in Troy, New York, an area of upstate NY adjacent to the Adirondack mountains. It was there that I first developed an interest in windsurfing and the outdoors in general.

In the mid-1970's I moved to the San Francisco, California area and resided there until the early 80's. I then moved back to the upstate NY region and pursued a business career in that area.

A logical step in my windsurfing avocation was to make a windsurfing safari trip to Hatteras Island in the early 80's. The bug bit me and several windsurfing trips to Avon each year became my normal pattern.

In the 90's, my wife and I acquired a rental cottage in Avon and made plans to move to the island. Once our family had grown and was off pursuing their own desires the time was at hand to make the official move. My wife currently manages a retail store in Hatteras Village and I became involved in real estate. We have never second-guessed our decision to move to the island.

I believe my experience as an out-of-state owner of a rental cottage gives me a different perspective when dealing with potential buyers. When dealing with current owners I think my experience allows me to adopt a different vantage point when discussing their needs and desires.

My association with Outer Beaches Realty started as an owner and has progressed to that of a REALTOR associate. To me, Outer Beaches Realty represents the pinnacle of the real estate management companies on Hatteras Island. I am committed to offering you the service you deserve as you explore the sale or acquisition of real estate on Hatteras Island. Please contact me so that I may help you find your dream beach cottage.

Born & raised in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, I, like many others, had a love of the beach. As a child, I spent many summer vacations on Long Beach Island, NJ. That time brings back fond memories of the beach, sailing and fishing.

Alas, I had to grow up and become a responsible adult. I earned an undergraduate degree in Sociology from Keuka College located on Keuka Lake in upstate New York. A beautiful location, but too darn cold! I married my high school sweetheart (23 years & counting!) and bought a house that was 120 years old! After years of renovations, (anyone who has ever owned an old house knows exactly what I am talking about) we had it placed on the historical register.

With one project completed, another began. While working as Director of Case Management Services at our local community mental health center I attended Penn State University. There I earned a Master's Degree in Public Administration.

During our renovation and schooling period we always made time for a vacation. And where did we spend our free time? On the Outer Banks, of course! One week would turn into two, the tent became a pop-up, and there were numerous discussions on how Hatteras Island would be a wonderful place to live.

Now, what did I do with that Masters Degree, you ask? I turned it in for an apron and a new pair of sneakers! You guessed it!!! We sold everything we owned, bought a house in Avon and moved! I waited tables at a local restaurant while my husband established his business. We became involved with the local community, contributing time and energy to the Avon Volunteer Fire Department and Outer Banks Hotline.

In 1992 I became concerned that my brain was turning to mush. Friends had been nagging me for years about how I should go to school and get my real estate license. More school, never! (Well, never say never!) I went to school, got my license and began to work at Outer Beaches Realty. 10+ years and still at it! Sure there are highs and lows, but that's life! I have the opportunity to meet new people (many who have become friends), advocate for my clients (a passion from my past) and sell castles in the sand!

Although I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, my journey with Hatteras Island started when I met my husband, Gene back in 1989. We would come to Hatteras Island to visit my husband's family and take in all of the wonderful activities and beautiful views that the island has to offer.
By 1997, we decided to take the plunge and buy a home in Waves, NC . We bought it as a summer rental home, but enjoyed many great vacations here as well. We eventually sold that home and bought our existing home in Rodanthe, NC., which was also in the summer rental program.
Ten years ago, I decided that I would become a real estate professional in Tennessee. While affiliated with Keller Williams Realty, I specialized in residential sales, first time homebuyers, new construction sales, and foreclosure sales.
It was always in the back of my mind that I would eventually come to Hatteras Island and sell real estate. Now I'm living that dream! My husband retired last year and we moved to Rodanthe. I immediately obtained my North Carolina Real Estate License. I have taken extensive real estate education courses in Tennessee and since I've been a Broker in North Carolina. I am an ABR (Accredited Buyers Representative) and an SFR (Short Sales and Foreclosures).
Having 9 ½ years experience through my real estate sales in Tennessee, and being a homeowner on Hatteras Island with a rental cottage, I can guide prospective buyers and sellers through the process of purchasing and selling a "Beach House". Come down and start creating your Hatteras Island memories!
