A graduate of East Tennessee State University as a respiratory therapist, I owned and operated a medical equipment company for 15 years. After selling my medical equipment business, I wanted to start a new career in a field that had always been my passion, real estate. I embarked on my new career in 2005 when I joined forces with RE/MAX Checkmate in Johnson City. The years I spent managing my previous business taught me many valuable skills. It taught me to listen to the needs and goals of my clients while educating them on the ever-changing real estate market.
