Occupation: I’ve been a Realtor at Coldwell Banker Realty in Newtown for three years now. It’s been a very exciting and rewarding journey. I have a background in event planning and sales, so the career change has been smooth and successful. I love helping people in such an exciting time of their life and organizing the whole process from start to finish.
Family: My husband and I married in 2017 on the beach in Madison; it was always a dream of mine to get married on the beach. We’ve known each other since childhood and are so excited we just had our first baby on November 29, 2020.
Pets: We have two smart and stubborn huskies. Luka is an all-white Siberian husky and Sheba is an Alaskan husky with traditional markings. We have a large property with a pond that they love to patrol around every day. On special days, we go to Fairfield Hills to walk and the local pet store for a new toy.
How long have you lived in Newtown? In 2015, my husband and I bought our first house in Sandy Hook after I moved back home from living in Hawaii after college. We’ve since moved, but we still reside in Newtown. It was emotional selling our first house, but I’m overjoyed we did because we had a successful sale and I love our new home.
What do you like to do in your free time? I like to stay current with fashion and interior design trends, which leads to my love of shopping. I also really enjoy working on our house and updating it with all the latest innovations.
What is your favorite book? There are so many books I have enjoyed, I just don’t have one favorite. Most of my time reading is during the summer. I love a good “beach read.” One of my favorite events of the year is the Annual Friends of the C.H. Booth Library Book Sale every summer in town.
What is your favorite travel destination? Disney World. It truly is magical at any age. We went for our honeymoon and had so much fun.
What is the best part about Newtown? The kindness and support between residents and businesses is incredible. There is so much love in the community.
Who has been the greatest influence in your life? My Grandmother Dee. She was kind to everyone she met and loved her friends and family deeply. She was not only successful with her business, Personal Touch Welcome in Ridgefield, but she was passionate about it and absolutely loved what she did every day. She was so full of life!
What is something you cannot live without? My camera. Even at a young age I was always taking pictures. I love capturing memories and looking back at all the events of life. With our first baby arriving soon, it is even more important to me and I can only imagine how many photos I’ll be taking.
What is your proudest accomplishment? Following my dreams out to California for college. It was a big decision at a young age, and I am grateful for my family’s support and the opportunity.
