Joined 9 years ago from Dallas, TX




I'm a recovering IT project manager and have been in charge of multi-million dollar projects. My former parent company was in Paris, France and business trips allowed me to visit family in Normandy during business trips.

I was certified an Electronic Document Professional by the Xplor International Organization in 1994, and served on the Board of Directors for 4 years, and on the Board's executive committee for 2 years. Being a road warrior, I woke up one morning and didn't know where I was, and more importantly, where the bathroom was. There had to be a better way to live.

I am a real estate entrepreneur. I've been a rehabber since 1991. I got my real estate agent license in 2003 to help with my investing. I'm a licensed real estate agent in the great state of Texas, currently affiliated with Ultima Real Estate in Dallas. I do very little traditional real estate. My primary business comes from short sales, which I work with my partner and team. I also work with fellow investors and perform BPOs for hard money lenders in the DFW metroplex.

I currently work as a data analyst for Bank of New York Mellon Corporate Trust. Interesting work as we are the custodian of mortgage collateral for many large lenders. My primary responsibility is the support of our clients that buy and sell notes on the secondary market.

I have worked with several real estate gurus over the years: Ron LeGrand, Lee Arnold, Jayme Kahla, Bob Leonetti and Roland Frasier.

I love to surround myself with high-energy, focused people that challenge me, forcing me to take my game to the next level. I believe in empowerment and my largest frustration is all the perpetual procrastinators that have every reason in the world why they are not where they want to be in life. My advice to them: Put yourself out there in the path of success - whatever your definition of success is. In the words of Yoda, Jedi Master "Try you musn't. Do you must!"

I have been married to my wonderful husband since 1990, and have one terrific son. We have a household full of animals (no, not my husband and son!) which currently include 2 Siamese cats, 2 Chihuahuas and 1 Spitz mix.
