I am a North Shore native and a lifelong Chicago resident, and I feel fortunate to call Lake Forest my home for the past five years. After our daughter was born, my husband Dave and I were looking to move from the city to the suburbs to start our family, and Lake Forest was an obvious choice. My husband was born and raised in Lake Forest, and his wonderful experience drew us back. We have found Lake Forest the perfect community to raise our two young children, Hayden (6) and James (4). Whether we are enjoying the Open Lands, one of the many local parks, or the beach, we are so grateful for all that Lake Forest has to offer.
I spent the first part of my career in education as a high school English teacher at one of Chicago’s top selective enrollment schools and as a student teacher advisor at Northwestern University. I am excited to now pursue my next chapter in real estate. My background in education coupled with my personable, hardworking, and trustworthy nature will shape my approach to real estate: to educate and demystify the entire buying and selling process for my clients and to tirelessly work to best represent their interests.
I am excited to be partnering with my mother-in-law Lisa Trace, the #1 top producing agent at GGL in 2018, and to learn from her 18 years of experience. Together as a team, we will combine vast knowledge with fresh market perspective to provide clients unsurpassed service. If you are looking to buy or sell a home, we would love to help you.
