I’m a fifth generation Californian and a proud Palm Springs Realtor®. I grew up in Palo Alto, California during the 1970s in a mid-century modern home designed by Joseph Eichler. I moved to San Francisco after high school to pursue a career as a professional ballet dancer.
In 1986, I moved to New York City and joined American Ballet Theatre, where I danced for six years before I decided to change gears.
I entered Fordham University 1993 and transferred to San Francisco State University in 1994. I received two degrees from SFSU in 1997, one in statistics and the other in economics. After I graduated from SFSU, I worked in several marketing positions, but I soon realized the corporate world wasn’t for me.
I went back to school to study photography at San Francisco City College and opened my own photography business in 2005. The economic downturn several years later forced me to close up shop and to reinvent myself one more time.
Given my experience and skill set, plus the fact that I had experience in buying and selling properties over the years, real estate was a natural transition for me.
Why Real Estate?
When I reinvented myself the last time, I had to do some real soul searching. We had moved to Palm Springs without jobs or any kind of social network. I knew my new career was going to be my fourth and I wanted it to be my last career. I knew I had to figure out what new career path I could embark on that would make me happy, that would satisfy me.
After analyzing myself, it came down to three things: I like to help people, I like to solve problems and I like to shop. When I looked at these things objectively, real estate seemed natural to me. And I was right. I really do like what I’m doing now and I know I can keep being a Realtor as long as I want to continue to work.
