It is great to love what you do for a living! I enjoy being a real estate agent affiliated with the professionals at Bickerstaff Parham Real Estate and the folks that I come in contact with each and every day. I am proud to have earned my GRI (Graduate REALTOR Institute) designation as well as my recent status as Associate Broker. I basically love houses and all that is associated with them. It is interesting to look at them, assess their value, advise a seller when selling a home, as well as to help a buyer find the perfect home. It is so rewarding to help buyers and sellers to reach their goals and to play a small part in making that happen for them. I especially love gardens and how they can work to improve a property both in aesthetics and function. As a Master Gardener, I feel that I can add another dimension to the home buying and selling process. Partnered with my love of creatively doing the “what if we” changes to houses and my attention to detail, I can offer my clients a well-rounded approach to meeting their real estate goals while having some fun along the way. As an Athens, Georgia native, I attended the University of Georgia where I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Advertising and Public Relations. I was a member of Phi Kappa Phi and Zodiac, an organization that recognizes the top twelve junior women with the highest GPA. I was also a member of Alpha Delta Pi social sorority. My community involvement includes being the 1996 Race Director of the Steeplechase at Callaway that raises funds for the arts in Columbus and the area and serving of the Boards of Girls, Inc. and the Columbus Regional Tennis Association. I am currently a Board member of the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, the Columbus Botanical Garden, the Chattahoochee Valley Camellia Society, and the Women’s Reading Club of Columbus. I am a member of St. Luke United Methodist Church where I serve on the Altar Guild. I have two daughters, Martin and Lizzie; four grandchildren - Emma, Marshall, Becca and Lucile; two great son-in-laws and a Jack Russell terrier named Jasper. I live in the historic Overlook area in Columbus where I recently purchased an older home and enjoyed the experience of putting my creative knowledge and skills to work!
