What Is One Special Thing About the Place You Grew Up?

Maine is an amazing state and I spend all my summers with my grandparents there.  I moved to Parker, CO when I was 12 and the best part about the area was the open space and riding my horse for hours with incredible fields and views and no one around.

Number of Years in Real Estate:

I’ve been in real estate 12 years and just celebrated my 10-year anniversary at Kentwood City.

Hobbies:

I’d have to say cooking is my number one passion and hobby.  I do love skiing and going on long walks with my dogs to clear my head.  Traveling is also high on my list of activities!

Describe Yourself In 5 Words:

Blunt, loyal, dependable, caring, and hilarious.

Favorite Colorado Past-time:

I drive to the mountains almost every weekend. Glenwood Canyon never gets old and in the summer Independence Pass is stunning!

Favorite Place to Grab a Drink:

Cooper Lounge if I’m being fancy, College Inn if I’m not.

One Unusual Thing About You:

I’ve never been on a roller coaster.

In What Ways Are You Involved in Your Community?

I have always been passionate about animals and have worked with many rescues and service dog organizations.  I always give money to Denver Dumb Friends League and MAXfund after every closing.  Since cooking is a passion I believe in doing whatever I can to help people get food, especially kids, so contributions to food banks and food distributers is critical!   Food is our fuel and so many don’t have enough.

What Is One Item on Your Bucket List?

To travel to Australia.

What Is Your Proudest Accomplishment and Why?

I think moving to Italy for a year was my moment.  I chose to pack up and take off “later in life”, with no clue how to speak the language or what I would do there.  Just my dog Cooper and I on a solo journey that made a huge impact on who I am today and how I live life.  My advice to people now is “vivere la vita ogni giorno!”  That translates to “live life every day” and I try my best, some days are better than others!

How Do You Define Success?

It is not always about the monetary success in life.  Having friends, an amazing family, a cozy house to come home to, doing deals with awesome clients who become friends, it all makes for a well-rounded life.

What Career Path Would You Have Chosen If You Didn’t Become a Real Estate Broker?

Chef.

If You Could Master Any Skill That You Don’t Currently Have, What Would It Be and Why?

Knitting.  Seems like a good way to pass the time while watching TV or on a plane AND you get something out of it when it’s completed!

What Is the Most Adventurous Thing You’ve Ever Done?

Snuck my dad’s sports car out of the garage as a teenager and went joyriding.

If You Could Have Dinner with Anyone, Who Would It Be and Why?

My great- grandmother, who was Italian.  I didn’t speak the language when I was a kid and she didn’t speak any English but watching her cook was amazing.  I’d love to hear all of her stories about coming to the USA from Italy and re-live her life through the years.  I bet it was fascinating!

What Is Your Favorite Holiday Tradition?

Our family is very small since my dad and I are only children so it’s usually a small group.  We created a tradition out of a snowstorm, which happened a few years ago.   We always had Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with different friends.  A huge snowstorm came in and no one could get out on Xmas Day.  SOOOO we stayed in sweats by the fire ate and drank great champagne and declared that we would ALWAYS just do that day as our own family going forward.  It’s the best!

If You Could Live in A Book, TV Show, Or Movie What Would It Be and Why?

I’m going with Friends, because basically that’s my life now anyways.

If You Could Have Any Superpower What Would It Be and Why?

To open doors without ever getting up.  When you live with multiple animals, it’s an issue :)
