I was born and raised in Lawrence, KS, and have a deep sense of pride for my hometown. I feel blessed to have been raised in a diverse, close knit and welcoming community, such as Lawrence. Growing up, I loved researching the wild history of our city, the beautiful homes in Old West Lawrence and admiring the unique architecture one could find throughout town. Our downtown area is one of a kind and the Kansas University campus only adds to the appeal that Lawrence has to offer. When I was away from Lawrence, I would regularly brag, to anyone one who would listen, about the many wonders of our unique and special city.
After I graduated from Lawrence High School, the Rocky Mountains were calling my name, so I relocated to Winter Park, Colorado, for the next 8 years. Growing up in the country and being an outdoor enthusiast, I enjoyed the skiing, hiking and white water rafting that Colorado had to offer. I was a retail/rental manager for Ski Depot Sports and Silver Creek Ski Area during the years that I lived there.
Missing my family and my hometown, I relocated back to Lawrence in 1998. My husband and I became partners in my family’s concrete finishing business and I continued my career in retail management until 2001. Following my love of everything animals, I switched gears and started working for local veterinarian hospitals, for the next 10 years. Since there is always some poor furry soul that needs a home, I ended up adopting 5 kitties and a crazy neurotic English Pointer during that time. In 2011, we decided to add another member, human this time, and welcomed our daughter to the family.
Feeling it was the right time in my life, I joined the Stephens family in 2017, to fulfill a dream of mine to work in the real estate industry. Having 25 years’ experience of working in the customer service field, I genuinely enjoy working with people and take great pride in satisfying the needs of my client. My attention to detail, multi-tasking abilities and communication skills helps me to fulfill that mission. My clients will always be much more than just customers to me, as I consider them family as well. Buying a home can be exciting, sometimes scary, and the largest financial decision most people will ever make. My goal is to make that process as easy, fulfilling and stress free as possible!
