What do you do at Flyhomes? I am one of the Mangers for our Client Engagement team! I help with training of new hires and support the team on the back end of their daily tasks. Having been in the role myself for over a year, it was a natural transition for me. I try to stay sharp by still interacting with those who come to Flyhomes wanting to know more about our unique approach. We are the first interaction a lot of people have with Flyhomes, and that’s an honor and great responsibility! 

What did you do before joining Flyhomes? I have a customer service background in all of my previous jobs, as community and people are very important to me. I worked for Hillstone Restaurant Group for 13 years, in LA and most recently in Aspen. I additionally have non-profit experience with recruiting volunteers for a mentoring organization, and donor relations in Public Radio!

What’s something unexpected that you’ve learned on the job? That I could buy a home too! My husband and I just closed on a west facing condo in early January. We are still pinching ourselves. Flyhomes makes a very daunting and intimidating process very manageable and exciting to be a part of! 

What’s your #1 tip for homebuyers? Educate yourself (Flyhomes truly makes it easy), get pre-underwritten, talk it through, set realistic goals, crunch numbers, and get on tours to see what you like!

How do you like to spend time when you’re not working? I love all outdoor things, movies, travel, and exploring the arts & cultural parts of any city I live in. I’m always getting involved! I’m happily near a lot of my family now, so seeing them as much as possible is a big priority for me.

Who says streaming shows has to be chill? Laura and Jesse like to celebrate. (It was her birthday!)

What’s something about you that surprises people? I was born in Seattle, grew up in Southeast Alaska, and still wear my retainers at night!

Pets, plants, or both? What makes you happy at home? My plant game has vastly improved, and cats are up next in the very near future.

What neighborhood do you live in? Where else have you lived? My husband and I just bought in West Seattle, and previously was renting in North Queen Anne. Seattle neighborhoods are wonderful to explore. Every place has its funky individuality!

What’s your favorite place in Seattle? Spill a best-kept neighborhood secret spot (where do the locals go?) I really love the Smith Tower. Deep Dive and Le Caviste are charming nooks when bopping around the city. 

What do you love most about your home? Our walk-in closet AND laundry room were not photographed in the listing of our condo, so their elusiveness makes me extra pleased with myself. I love that my husband and I have painted every wall, and are making it our cozy nest. We have views of the Olympics, and the natural light changes the way our walls look at all hours of the day!
