I joined Town and Mountain as a broker in the spring of 2021. Having moved with my family to Asheville at the age of seven and spending most of my life here, though not technically a “native”, Asheville is more home to me than anywhere else. I am a product of the Asheville City School System, passing weekends and summers working for my family's residential construction business.

I joined Town and Mountain as a broker in the spring of 2021. Having moved with my family to Asheville at the age of seven and spending most of my life here, though not technically a “native”, Asheville is more home to me than anywhere else. I am a product of the Asheville City School System, passing weekends and summers working for my family's residential construction business. I learned from an early age the ins and outs of the local housing market and developed a strong skill set in new and custom construction and renovation. 

I went on to earn an undergraduate degree in cultural anthropology from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. A degree, which more than anything is an exploration of what it means to be human. What I most took from this was empathy and objectivity for the uniqueness of every individual's lives and an understanding of the choices that people make, both large and small, an ability to “put myself in someone else’s shoes”.

Following graduation I moved to Colorado, selling property rentals and vacation packages at Copper Mountain Ski Resort, then on to Chicago working in the 3D printing, development and design industry.

But, the mountains were calling and in 2017 I made the move back to Asheville, joining a local startup drink business, Shanti Elixirs. For the next 3+ years I gained invaluable experience learning what it takes to launch your own business and brand and helping Shanti Elixirs trailblaze the non-alcoholic drink market.

Then, and perhaps somewhat inevitably, after growing up in the construction business, working in the service industry, leasing vacation rentals, digitally designing homes and renovations in 3D space and being a part of a startup business, my path led me here, to the point of launching my real estate career.

As an advocate for green building, sustainability and responsible urban growth, I am excited to launch this next chapter, and thrilled to be a part of what seems to be a wonderful Town and Mountain Family.

In my off hours you can find me keeping my house plants alive or weeding in the garden, exploring our local great outdoors, hiking, biking, trail running with my mostly obedient dog Layla or quietly observing the ever changing landscape of WNC.

I’d love to be a part of your next great adventure as a buyer or seller, or simply as a perpetually curious person to chat with.
