My husband and I moved to Portage almost 40 years ago when we got married. I've made Columbia county my home since that time, raising my own children and many foster children in this wonderful community. After many happy years in public education, I retired to continue my career in real estate, joining my daughter Michelle, and her husband Marine in their team. I love showing the beautiful homes in the area as well as staging them and enjoy meeting new people and helping them find their dream homes. I love spending my free time with my grandchildren, hiking, gardening, reading and crafting. In my spare time, I volunteer with the children's ministries at our church.
