WHAT DID YOU DO PRIOR TO REAL ESTATE?
I worked in the bridal industry with my mom. I sold wedding gowns and related attire to retail stores across Western Canada.
WHAT BUSINESS/CAREER ACHIEVEMENT MAKES YOU PROUD?
I decided in 2013 that I was going to make a career change. It was a very scary thing to do, leaving something that I had done for the past 8 years for something new….real estate! Within the first few months I realized how perfect the change was for me and I fit right in. Meeting my sales goals has been my biggest achievement.
WHO OR WHAT’S BEEN THE BIGGEST INFLUENCE IN YOUR LIFE?
My mom. She’s such a great role model regarding business and being organized; she’s always on top of every detail!
WHAT DO YOU VALUE MOST IN LIFE?
Family and friends. As I get older it becomes more and more clear that time is more valuable than money.
I AM MOST COMPETITIVE WHEN
Any sport or competition. I’m a very competitive person. I love the thrill.
