Originally from Boston, I hold a Bachelor’s Degree from Boston University’s Wheelock College and a Master’s Degree from Tufts University. I’ve lived in the Mt. Washington Valley since 1995 when my late husband and I moved here. For many years, I was a licensed car dealer and had Hertz and Penske rentals at the Glen Warehouse, which I managed. When I decided I wanted a change, real estate seemed a natural choice. I was thrilled to join Badger Peabody & Smith Realty (formerly Badger Realty) in January 2021–and to be working with my good friend, Kathleen Sullivan Head, who sold me my house in Glen. I’m looking forward to applying my sales, communication, management and writing skills to my new career–and to sharing my love of the area with buyers. When I’m not working, you can find me outdoors–snowshoeing, cross country and downhill skiing in winter, and golf, sailing, kayaking and swimming in summer. I also love working out, playing racquetball and hanging out at home with my talking African Grey parrot! In the community, I love volunteering, currently I am a Member of Memorial Hospital’s Patient and Family Advisory Council, Golf Tournament Committee, and Care Transitions Team, as well the Steering Committee for the Bartlett Historical Society. In real estate, my goal is always to take the stress out of buying or selling for my clients.
What made you choose to work for Badger Peabody & Smith Realty?
Over 25 years ago, my late husband and I bought our home in the Mt Washington Valley from Kathleen Sullivan Head. I clearly remember the experience as being both delightful, highly efficient and professional. Kathleen and I bonded over the bright yellow countertops in the kitchen. The countertops and kitchen have since been updated and so has my career. After earning my real estate license this past year, I was fortunate to have several employment offers from Mt Washington Valley Real Estate Agencies. Badger Peabody & Smith Realty impressed me as having the most exposure for their clients, back up support from administrative staff, resources for current market trends and economic forecasts, educational opportunities and ongoing training to benefit both my clients and my career.
What is your favorite charity?
It is not just because the Damsel Scramble, Valley Promotions' annual golf tournament is so much fun, it is because of Lisa Dufault’s work to promote the Mt Washington Valley’s non- profits, support their fundraising efforts and ease some of the workload from their volunteer boards.
Do you have any pets?
I have a 27 year old African Grey parrot named Little Guy. Little Guy sings and whistles up a storm, loves to eat and to dance on the floor with her favorite food dish.
