Growing up in a home with my dad as a general contractor and my mom running his business behind the scenes, I have always had an interest in being part of creating and tailoring people’s homes, businesses, and properties to what they’ve worked hard at dreaming up.
Life outside of work I also hold the position of Household CEO to four boys (Austin, Mason-Luke, Colt, and Jaxx) my fiancé (Dustin), and a crazy pup (Nyxi). This also consists of my side gig working for Search and Rescue: socks or anything else in plain sight. In rare moments of free time, I enjoy: Riding my Harley, traveling, rock picking, working on projects at the homestead, and most of all…SNACKING!
“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”
Nice to meet you!
