I was born and raised on the sunny Central Coast of California! I went to college at San Diego State University, where I graduated Cum Laude with a degree in Journalism. 
I took my love of writing, planning and people, and cultivated a career as a Corporate Event Planner for over 10 years in downtown San Diego. During this time, I met my husband and his career for the United States Navy brought us to Washington D.C, Naples, Italy and back to D.C. again!

Not only from what a logistical hardship relocating & moving can be, but also the need and desire to make each house a home for yourself and your family.

I am extremely honored to have found a home with the entire Bic DeCaro team! Their ideals of putting client’s needs first, quality over quantity and never compromising integrity, encapsulated what I was looking for.
Away from the office, you may spot me doing something active in nature with Thor, our golden retriever puppy, or exploring all of the hidden gems that the entire DMV has to offer!
As you embark on this exciting adventure, I’d love the opportunity to take my history of exceeding expectations and assist you in finding a home that you can grow with for years to come… Andiamo!

I wasn’t interested in print media as I had seen homes comparable to mine just sitting week in and week out in the two Great Falls newspapers.
