Hello! I am so excited to be a part of the Preferred Shore Team in the great city of Sarasota. I am originally from Ohio born and raise. I graduated from The Ohio State University. I bought my first house in Columbus when I was 18 and my love for real estate began. I opened my first business when I was 21 in Powell where I ran a successful collegiate furniture company. I sold that company a few years later to focus on the birth of my first son. I had all 3 of my sons, Alex, Andrew and Adam in Ohio but the longing for warmer temperatures and another business opportunity brought me to Florida. After reading about the fantastic school system in Sarasota and seeing what a great city it was I moved here in 2014. I sold my company in 2016 and decided real estate was my true passion and I believe now more than ever you must do what you love to be happy. In my free time I love to swim, practice yoga, relax at Lido Beach, have drinks at O’Leary’s by Marina Jacks, have a picnic dinner at sunset on Siesta Key Beach or try out one of the many wonderful restaurants. The Sarasota area has so much to offer and I can’t even begin to explain how excited I am to help my clients with all their real estate needs!
