My love for South Carolina, hot summers, and southern hospitality can be traced back to my childhood growing up in Myrtle Beach. My time during the school year was taken up by performing arts and my summers were filled with tourists, traffic, and being near water as much as possible. Coming to Columbia in 2012 to attend the University of South Carolina, I had no idea that I could love this city more than the one I knew for 18 years! Columbia is where I met my husband (in Williams Brice Stadium), built lifelong relationships with college friends, and found the church that would be so instrumental in growing my faith. Married in 2017, my husband and I bought a home in Columbia and immersed ourselves in the city in a new way. As Columbia has grown & differentiated itself from the rest, we have found ourselves proud to be a part of the fun & vibrant culture it offers.
After graduating in 2016 with a degree in Business Administration, I went directly into full time ministry with Campus Outreach, a college Christian ministry. For 3.5 years, I had the amazing opportunity of mentoring college students at USC from all over the US. My days were filled with initiating & building relationships, challenging students towards growth, and coaching them in character and discipline. Constantly planning and recruiting to events, I thought for others’ needs and how to bring people together for a greater purpose. To be a part of a young person growing into who they will be for the rest of their life is the most rewarding experience I’ve ever had, and I’m so grateful for the skills I learned.
In light of my degree and my design, I always knew long-term I would want to be in the business realm working closely with people. My natural ability to build relationships coupled with a strong desire to make an impact in the local community led me to see that real estate would be a great fit. Having experience in handling a task from start to finish, I wanted to take my skills to a place where the results can clearly be seen! There’s something so amazing about the process of discovering your next home to getting the keys handed over to you—and I knew that first hand! My husband and I had such a great experience buying our home with The Art of Real Estate that I knew I didn’t need to look any further. Working with a team that genuinely cares for people & loves their city, I’m honored to be the friendly face who serves you with diligence & hard work!
