Working as a Realtor┬« seems a natural extension of my many years in human services.  A retired State of Michigan employee, I began my real estate career with Cressy and Everett in January 2003.  The company's core values were what led me to place my license here.  These same core values guide my practice and my life.  It is a great joy to share in folks' home buying adventure.  After all my years serving customers, it is still wonderful to meet new people, learn about their hopes and dreams and hopefully play a small part in helping them achieve their goals.   Beyond real estate, I still am an active social worker with hospice, probate court and guardianship clients.    For relaxtion, reading and needlework are the activities I most enjoy.  

  •  Retirement from almost 30 years of State of Michigan service allows me to actively pursue a career in real estate.
  •  To the new career, I bring the social Work values of honesty, trustworthiness, integrity and caring that have guided my life.
  •  To my customers, I bring not only my values but also a hard work ethic that is difficult to surpass.
  •  Living in Southwestern Michigan for over 50 years, I am very familiar with the area, the land, the people and their cultures.
  •  Educational background. Cassoplolis High School, B.A. from Western Michigan University in 1973. M.S.W. from GVSU in 2002.
