I was born in Hawaii in 1971. My Dad was a fighter pilot in the
Air Force and my Mom was a math teacher. We moved away and returned when I was in the 2nd grade. By this time, I had acquired a younger brother, Steve. We lived in Hawaii through my freshman year in high school where I attended Punahou School.
In 1986, we moved to Kingwood, Texas, north of Houston. I graduated from Kingwood High School in 1989. Then I enrolled at the University of Texas at Austin where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Advertising in 1993.
For the first 2 years after college I worked for the Gallup Polls and for Pace Realty as a leasing agent at Whisper Hollow Apartments in South Austin. But I had the itch to travel. So, in 1995, I got a backpack, a Euro-Rail pass, and traveled around Europe. I visited many countries. The closest to my heart is Holland, where I lived for 5 months.
After I completed my travels in Europe, I went back to Grad School and completed my Masters in Advertising from The University of Texas at Austin in 1998. While at the university, I was a T.A. for the intro advertising course ADV 318J taught by
Dr. John Murphy.
After I graduated with my Masters degree in 1998, I moved to New York City to work for Bates Advertising. Working in the ad business in New York was amazing!
As the Internet boom hit, I took a job with US/Web CKS in Austin. I moved to Austin at the end of 1999 and was transferred to the Dallas office in 2000. My role was Brand Strategist, developing communication strategies for brands online and offline. US/Web CKS changed its name first to US/Web, then to marchFIRST, and finally to divine, Inc. With the decline in the Technology sector,
I was laid off...
Then, I returned to real estate. I got my real estate license and went to work for a large apartment locating firm in 2002. During my time there, I was awarded Rookie of the Year for the Dallas region in 2002 and Top Locator of the Year 2003, 2nd Runner Up (that means #3 in Dallas)!
Wanting my own business, I started Right @ Home Properties in January of 2004. I believe that excellent customer service is what people seek today. And, that
EVERYONE SHOULD LOVE WHERE THEY LIVE!
