What Is One Special Thing About Where You Grew Up?
I love Denver, which is why I’ve never left. I recently bought a new home two blocks away from my elementary school and blocks away from my office. There is just something so special to me about living and working in the same neighborhood that shaped me as a child.
What Was You First Job?
Working for my Dad at his law office helping to clean up files, making copies, and shredding old files.
Travel! I’m a happy camper if I can get out of town a few times a year. I love movies and jump at the chance to see blockbuster or art house movies.
Describe Yourself In 5 Words:
Outgoing, passionate, loyal, funny, and stylish.
Favorite Colorado Past-time:
Heading to the mountains to enjoy the crisp mountain air. I head to Vail whenever I get the chance – it’s been my favorite mountain town since I was young.
Favorite Place to Grab a Drink:
Hillstone. I love the aesthetic and when the band is there in the evening, it reminds me of being with my grandparents who I was very close with.
One Unusual Thing About You:
I love spoilers! When I start to read a book and get to know the characters, I read ahead to the last few pages. If the book has an interesting ending, I keep reading because I want to know how the characters get to the end point. If I don’t like the ending, or don’t connect with the characters I won’t finish the book. I know it’s crazy, but it’s a weird quirk.
In What Ways Are You Involved in Your Community?
Over the last few years, I’ve become really involved with the Denver Metro Association of Realtors serving as a Director of the Board and within the year moving into the role of a National Association of Realtors Director. I also worked with a small group of real estate agents researching and planning the roll-out for electronic lockboxes to better protect and serve the public as well as our clients. I am a committed member of the Realtor community and have found it incredibly fulfilling.
I also have a blog, https://lifestyledenver.com/ that covers all things Denver which has been a fantastic way to get to know my local community more.
Who Inspires You?
My parents inspire me all the time. My Mom had a long successful career and taught me the importance of having a career that you love. My Dad owns his own law firm and has been a great resource for advice and support.
What Is Your Proudest Accomplishment and Why?
My proudest accomplishment to date is my career. I’ve created an amazing base of clients who I am so grateful for! I’ve been in the business for 13 years and have loved every moment.
How Do You Define Success?
Success is living the life you have worked for and enjoy what you do on a day to day basis. I’m eternally thankful for my success.
What Career Path Would You Have Chosen If You Didn’t Become a Real Estate Broker?
If I wasn’t in real estate I think I would enjoy being an interior designer. I enjoy helping my clients stage their homes for sale and provide suggestions and recommendation. Additionally, I have loved putting my new home together piece by piece.
If You Could Master Any Skill That You Don’t Currently Have, What Would It Be and Why?
If only I could master the skill of mindreading, it would make life so much easier. But, if that’s not feasible then I would go with fly fishing. I’ve been turned onto the sport over the last few years and would love to know what I’m doing.
What Is the Most Adventurous Thing You’ve Ever Done?
A few years ago, I took on the challenge of saying yes to anything that scared me or that I would normally say “No” to. That took me on a series of adventures, but the most adventurous was rappelling off a 24-story building for the Cancer League of Colorado.
If You Could Have Dinner with Anyone, Who Would It Be and Why?
I’m going to break the rule here and say I would love to have dinner with Chelsea Handler, Mindy Kailing, Reese Witherspoon, and Victoria Beckham. Mostly because they are all hilarious women, who are also passionate and have created inspirational careers. They’re strong, independent women and I would like to say I see a bit of myself in them.
What Is Your Favorite Family Tradition?
Over the last few years my family has gone to Taos for Christmas. This has become my favorite tradition because it’s a great time of year to slow down, go on vacation, and connect with my family. I’m spoiled because my family all lives close by, but life gets busy and it’s nice to spend the week together. I’m especially looking forward to this year as it will be the first time my new puppies – Marcuccio & Emma will be joining us.
What’s the Best Concert You’ve Ever Been To? What Made It So Special?
Oh, I can’t choose just one! The first would be Dave Mathew’s Band in an acoustic show with Tim Reynolds at Macky Auditorium on the CU campus, the year before I started my freshman year as a Buff. The second was Ed Sheeran at Red Rocks the same day I got back from vacation in England.
If You Could Live in A Book, TV Show, Or Movie What Would It Be and Why?
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I studied the book in college for a semester and read it in-depth three times during that time and absolutely love it. I also named one of my new puppies Emma as I also love that book by Ms. Austen.
