I’ve lived in Huntington Harbour since 1973 and have watched it grow. I bring personal involvement in all my client’s real estate dealings by keeping my practice a reasonable size. But I believe in using all the technology available for up-to-date as well as forward looking service. I have a degree in Economics from the University of Southern California and a background as a loan officer for Bank of America to assist my clients in deciphering the real estate trends as well as the nuts and bolts of the transaction.
I believe Huntington Harbour offers a unique lifestyle with recreational opportunities that appeal to all as well as a small town atmosphere which leads to community involvement and activities. The neighboring communities of Surfside, Sunset Beach, and all Huntington Beach, add diversity.
I've been married since 1970 to my husband Jerry and have 3 children, Maggie, a lawyer, Tom, a restaurant manager, and Stephen who is doing property rehabilitation. We have 4 grandchildren: Ben, Carter, Kate and Bodhi. I grew up in Indio, California but our family moved to Newport Beach every summer when I was young to escape the heat. I have always loved the beach and one of my main goals while growing up was live at the beach rather than the desert.
I graduated from USC with a BA in Economics after being accepted in the Residence Program for High School Seniors, and worked for an insurance company and then Bank of America before I had my children. After the children were born, I helped my husband in his business and volunteered.
I've been PTA President of Harbour View School and Marina High School, as well as positions on the governing boards of School Site Counsel and After School Achievement Program, cub scout den mother, active in little league and AYSO and all the other myriad of other activities children get into. I was Director of the Huntington Harbour Junior Sailing program for many years. Also Yachtsman of the Year for Huntington Harbour Yacht Club and Yachtswoman of the Year for the Association of San Pedro Bay Yacht Clubs. I was Training Director for Area J (So. Calif., Nevada, Arizona, Utah) for the United States Sailing Association. Also Director for the International Sabot Association and Vice Chairman of the Southern California Youth Yacht Raciing Association.
I have first hand knowledge of working with homeowner's associations because our first home in Huntington Harbour was in Tennis Estates, a townhouse development. I not only served on many committees over the years we lived there, but also served on the Board of Directors and was President for two years.
I also have been active in various school and community groups including the
presidency of one of the Huntington Harbour Philharmonic groups, as well as
many positions on the Huntington Harbour Philharmonic board level.
