Block Island has been my home since 1997. I love being a year round resident sharing my life with my husband Dave, our son Zane and the Block Island community. I have been working as an agent since the year 2000, formally with Ballard Hall Real Estate, joining Lila Delman in 2011. I was born into the real estate business; my mother was an agent in the Maryland/Virginia/D.C. area for over 35 years. To carry on her legacy is my biggest honor.

When you live on Block Island year round everyone wants to know your story, so here is mine…

I lived in Chicago for several years, I moved there to continue my career in politics. Once at the height of my career, I decided to challenge myself by simplifying my life. I left Chicago with a backpack and started to travel, my travels ended on Block Island. I arrived on Block Island in November; I caught the last ferry to the Island. The ferry did not run for the next three days. In those three days, I found a place to live, a job and a life-time of friends. That was 15 years ago and I am still very happily here.

I am an active member on the board for the Block Island Conservancy (BIC). The preservation of the Island is very important to me. The success of the BIC will ensure that the Island remains the same for my son Zane and future generations.

My success is simple, I work hard and I have a passion for what I do. I am honest and thoughtful and I create relationships that go beyond the closing.

Next time you are on Island, come by for a visit.
