I am an entrepreneur who has worked across diverse industry sectors, including real estate development, sales and marketing; project management; environmental management; and economic development.  I currently own and operate my own real
estate company and brand – Real Estate Experts. 
I also own Circular Design Consulting. Through CDC and Real Estate Experts, I am developing North Carolina’s
first 100% net-zero energy neighborhood called Array.  Building and retrofitting homes is a passion.  I want to contribute to the real estate sector by helping to reduce its carbon footprint. 

 With additional training in digital marketing and Six Sigma, combined with inherent tenacious skills and a focus on getting projects done, I achieve outstanding results.  This is evidenced by my success in real estate sales, the success of my real
estate company, and the success of developing a path-breaking neighborhood that will showcase new methods in energy-efficient construction and design. 

By nature, I am a problem-solver and an extreme doer with a multi-faceted skill set spanning operations, project management and continuous improvement, which I believe enables me to transform and grow successful businesses. I seamlessly translate strategic visions, spearheading new innovations that maximize revenues, and ensure complete client satisfaction. I believe in empowering teams to deliver outstanding service levels, fostering a family-type work environment, and encouraging new ideas that deliver operational
