Let her help you plant roots in the Ozarks today!
Born and raised on the banks of the Mississippi River, a small-town girl went to the big city for education
and life experience. Seventeen years of rewarding professional development in multi-family,
commercial and international real-estate could not quiet a need to return to a land where water flows
like the blood through her veins.
The clean water, fresh air and serene majesty of the Ozarks called to me. I was charmed hiking the trails
of the Mark Twain National Forest and courted while kayaking the Ozark Scenic Riverways. All the while,
I was falling in love with pristine springs and sapphire-blue swimming holes. Beauty abounds here,
unmatched by anything, anywhere else in the country. I finally settled down on a large plot of land with
an end of the road setting; a little place the old timers call Hog Hollow.
The history here runs deeper than the waters. The people are as varied and colorful as the trees in the
fall. “Everybody knows everybody, everybody calls you friend”. Since planting seeds and putting down
roots, I cannot imagine calling any other place home.
If these ancient mountains are whispering to you, let me help you hear their story. Let me help you find
your home among the peaks and valleys of the Ozark Mountains.
