I am committed to my clients and to the communities in which I live. Having lived in neighborhoods throughout Orlando and Winter Park since childhood, and having grown up on New Smyrna Beach, I appreciate the unique benefits of each community. I’m inspired by the urban and natural landscapes as well as the varied cultural and outdoor activities each community offers.
