Age: 35

ABOUT HER: Born and raised in Norton, a 2001 graduate of Bishop Feehan High School and a 2005 graduate of Providence College. Lives with husband Tim, and their two boys, DJ, four, and Joel, two.

WHY YOUR FIELD? When I was buying my first house in 2006 I was committed to understanding the process. In "diving in" I fell in love with it and decided to get my license. I was teaching at North Attleboro Middle School at the time. As time went on I fell more and more in love with real estate and knew I had to jump in full time with both feet.

BEST CAREER ADVICE: Combine your passion with your purpose -- and do it consistently!

HARDEST LESSON LEARNED: Not everyone you meet will share your values, drive or vision.

MENTOR(S): I'm lucky to get a great work ethic and foundation of values from my parents. My mentor for many years was the late John Alexandrov who was my personal coach and to whom I owe many of my lessons and much of my career growth.

GIVING BACK: I volunteer each year at North Attleboro Middle School's heritage day, and have sponsored Norton Pop Warner's golf tournament, the Glow in the Park Fun Run each year, and a paint night for Reach Out For Youth at the Hockomock YMCA. I recently did a $5,000 giveaway (people submitted videos for personal causes): A special needs boy who can't walk got a new specialized bike, a family in medical crisis received $1,000 in Stop and Shop gift cards, a nonprofit school received $1,000, a local Christmas toy drive for kids received $1,000 and a local food organization that provides meals for underprivileged kids received $1,000. Also, weekly special needs students from North Attleboro come to my office to do office work and learn skills and I host interns for high school and college students seeking some professional experience and in particular real estate exposure. I’ve also planned fundraising events for Sunshine Kids-Berkshire Hathaway Foundation that sends children with severe medical issues to a medically supervised summer camp.

WHAT TALENT DO YOU WISH YOU HAD MOST THAT YOU DON'T NOW? I have always wished I could sing. I am exceptionally tone deaf!

WHAT AWARDS/RECOGNITIONS HAVE YOU RECEIVED IN YOUR CAREER? I have received the honors of President's Circle, Chairman's Circle Gold, Platinum and Diamond and recently was named one of Berkshire Hathaway's top 10 agents in the country. I’ve also been recognized for work with Sunshine Kids.
