Growing up in small town Manitoba enabled me to recognize at a young age, the importance of family, friends and neighbours. Spending a great deal of time in my father’s small retail business taught me the importance of giving back to the community and that the secret to success was treating people with the respect and the courtesy we all deserve.
Over my 33 year career in the personal finance and residential mortgage business, I had the opportunity to live and work in every province in our country except for the Maritimes. During this time, I owned around 15 homes, learning something new about home ownership with every move. I have done my best to transfer these skills to our real estate business, first in B.C. and now here in Eastern Ontario.
The decision to leave B.C.’s Sunshine Coast 10 years ago wasn’t an easy one, but the call to be closer to family was strong. When my wife Pauline and I researched different areas in south eastern Ontario, the Kingston area seemed to meet our criteria of value, location and lifestyle. Choosing Bath, as our home, has proven to be an excellent choice as we enjoy the friendly, welcoming environment of small-town living, all within 20 minutes of the great City of Kingston.
The life skills and experience picked up along the way, have transitioned well to the real estate business. The formation of VILLAGE LIFESTYLE Real Estate Team is an exciting new opportunity to work with some great professionals in a terrific business.

A big city girl raised in Toronto, I always wanted nothing more than to follow my heart and passion to Eastern Ontario. Over the years, this is where I spent numerous summer vacations at my family cottage that instilled so much joy and love for this area. Early in our marriage, my husband and I decided it was our goal to make our way out of Toronto and re-locate our family to the greater Kingston area. Our dream finally became a reality when we settled in Bath, Ontario. We are now able to proudly call it home.
We spend our free time experiencing all the village has to offer, enjoying the friendly people and the laid-back lifestyle. With no regrets on leaving the fast-paced life of the city, I have transferred my 30 plus years of sales and administrative experience in the service industry into a second career in Real Estate. When I’m not working, I thoroughly enjoy spending time with my four young grandchildren and their families. I love to cook, I’m learning to golf, and relish every moment at our cottage.
I know from experience buying or selling your home can be stressful. I also know every Real Estate opportunity is unique, driven by different needs. All clients deserve an agent that will partner with you, provide helpful advice and stand by you as you embark on this journey. When you need Real Estate direction, advice or help, I would love to be with you every step of the way.
