Background - I was born & raised on a farm near Spruce Grove. I married my husband Doug in 1968 and we have three grown children - Jennifer, Wade & Craig. We also have four granddaughters and a dog. I have lived in Spruce Grove for the past 20 years but prior to that we lived in Calgary, Claresholm, Ottawa and seven years in the Yukon. My husband's career caused us to relocate often and we still enjoy travelling whenever the opportunity arises.
Education & Work Experience - Originally graduated from high school in St. Albert, business college in Edmonton, completed the business management program at Carlton University, completed the U of A Certificate in Adult Continuing Education program with distinction, and numerous other courses over the years. I attended the Real Estate Training Institute in 1990 and continue to take professional and personal development and training.
In the past I worked in office administrative positions, program management and most recently in adult education and training. A major accomplishment and learning for me occurred in 1998-99 when I undertook the management of the construction of our current home, which involved considerable research, learning, organization and management. I am pleased to say that we are still very satisfied with our home.
It was after that that I decided, with encouragement and support from my husband, to go into the real estate field. With my family grown up and gone, and my husband semi-retired and pursuing his own interests, I have the time necessary to devote to my clients.
I have never regretted my decision and thoroughly enjoy working in this industry. I feel that I am helping people make some of their most important and personal changes in their lives, and in that way I am making a difference. I also feel confident that I am representing a very reputable company, an international but Canadian-owned company with a strong record of customer satisfaction. My personal goal is to provide excellent customer service and be the most competent and ethical professional that I can be.
Professional Accomplishments - I am a proud member of the Alberta Real Estate Association, the Canadian Real Estate Association, and the Edmonton Real Estate Board. I have achieved the Royal LePage Master Sales Award for the previous five consecutive years and the Royal LePage President's Platinum Award for this past year.
