I live in Needham with my golfer husband, our two energetic boys and a sassy preschooler. Our kids are in Needham public schools which helps me keep a finger on the real happenings around town. I survived a gut renovation of our current home, giving me the extra insight to assist those clients who are going through the same. Prior to moving to Needham in 2011, I lived in Newton where I also served as a real estate agent. When I'm not in the office, you can find me cheering on the sidelines at youth sports, skiing in the winter and beach hopping in the summer.
