I was born in North Holland and my family immigrated to the US under refugee status when I was eight years old. We sailed on an immigrant ship with few possessions, and seven years later we became US citizens.
After high school, I went to college for two years and then worked for Continental Airlines as a flight attendant. I’ve been a musician since I was 17 years old, so after 14 years, I resigned from Continental and took a road gig to Alaska with a Hollywood band and I’ve been here ever since. I married, adopted my daughter, and opened my own company, Aurora Travel, in Homer. After 10 years, I sold my company and worked for the State of Alaska as a traffic-control supervisor/flagger while getting my license to become a realtor in 2004.
I love meeting people of all walks of life and really enjoy helping them go through the buying, selling, and financing process on the Kenai Peninsula. I protect my clients as friends and represent them while showing homes and land.
