I was raised in Kailua, on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. I moved to Arizona in 1988 to attend ASU. I taught in the Kyrene School District at Mirada elementary school until 1999. I started selling real estate in 2002, and have ridden the highs and lows of Arizona's real estate market pretty much every day since. I have two children in high school that keep me busy as well!
