I’ve always longed for a career that would stretch my intellect and engage my heart. My professional journey started in the late ’80s when I worked for Citibank as a Mortgage Loan Officer when a good interest rate was somewhere around 15%!! With a firm understanding of business fundamentals and a yearning to excel in marketing, I temporarily left the corporate arena and pursued a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) with a concentration in marketing. Immediately thereafter I started a rewarding 14-year marketing career at Intel Corporation in Silicon Valley where I had the privilege of directing some of the company`s most recognized marketing campaigns. In 2007 I chose to merge my marketing experience with my passion for city living and start a career in residential real estate. At long last, I have found the perfect way to do what I love!

Helping clients navigate their way from one of life’s chapters to another is one of the most rewarding aspects of my work. It gives rise to a unique opportunity to support community organizations that make San Francisco a great place to live. I currently serve on the Board of Trustees for the Presidio Hill School and with every transaction I close, I donate a portion of my commission to local non-profit organizations serving San Francisco residents.
