About Me:

I was born and raised in Delaware County and I am a graduate of Ball State University with degrees in Finance and Business Administration. I have been involved in real estate for over 20 years, initially with the investment and construction of new homes and now as a realtor with RE/MAX Real Estate Groups. I co-founded and was President of Regal Inc., an established marketing and sales firm for over 25 years.

Prior to that, I was Manager of Budgeting and Strategic Planning for an environmental firm and did business planning and development for a regional CPA firm.

I have served on multiple non-profit boards and am a trustee for The Bridge Community Church of Muncie. I’ve been married for over 33 years. I have two children, one grandson, and two black lab.

I like to travel, hike, golf and ride motorcycles. I enjoy all sports and outdoor activities and I especially enjoy spending time with my family.
