Block Island has been my home for over 16 years. I love being a year round resident sharing my life with my husband Dave, our son Zane, and the Block Island community. I have been working as an agent for the last 16 years, formally with Ballard Hall Real Estate, joining Lila Delman in 2011. I was born into the real estate business; my mother was an agent in the Maryland/Virginia/D.C. area for over 35 years. To carry on her legacy is my biggest honor.

When you live on Block Island year round everyone wants to know your story, so here is mine...

I lived in Chicago for several years, I moved there to continue my career in politics. Once at the height of my career, I decided to challenge myself by simplifying my life. I left Chicago with a backpack and started to travel, my travels ended on Block Island. I arrived on Block Island in November and caught the last ferry to the Island. The ferry ended up not running for the next three days. In those three days, I found a place to live, a career and a life-time of friends. I feel fortunate every day to not only live in an amazingly beautiful place but to be a part of the Block Island community. The Island’s true gem is its people.

I am an active member on the board for the Block Island Conservancy (BIC). The preservation of the Island is very important to me. The success of the BIC will ensure that the Island remains the same for my son Zane and future generations. I am also an active member of the Block Island Housing Board. The town appointed Housing Board works to create affordable homes for all Island residents.

My success is simple, I work hard and I have a passion for what I do. I am thoughtful and authentic and I create relationships that go beyond the closing.

Next time you are on Island, come by for a visit.
