Where the Passion Begins

Owner/Certified Residential Appraiser

A native New Yorker, I fell in love with the Upstate of South Carolina while visiting a friend from college. After earning my Bachelors of Science degree in Economics I decided to move to the sunny south leaving behind the cold winters of New York. I cut my professional teeth in the restaurant world, working at several local restaurants in a management capacity. In 2004 I was given the opportunity to train as a residential real estate appraiser.

I'm a native to South Carolina. I worked for Cryovac for 30 years prior to this. After traveling and living in multiple places, including Canada, my husband and I moved back here. I started to work for Chris in 2018. I have two grown children with families of their own. Four grandchildren, and one great grand child.

Residential Appraiser Trainee

I was born and raised in Upstate South Carolina. Graduated from Byrnes High School in 2012 and spent my following four years pursuing a Bachelor's Degree at USC Upstate. I received an Associates in Graphic Design and a Bachelor's in History. My passion for this came in following in the foot steps of my dad and going under his wing into the family business. My husband and I live in Lyman and we have one fun loving four year old son.

Residential Appraiser Trainee

I began my appraiser apprenticeship with Carolina Appraisal Partners in March 2021. I have a passion for real estate originally fueled by small renovation project  my husband and I completed on our first home. Shortly after selling that home, we partnered up to create a real estate investment and renovation business.

After earning my Bachelor's degree in Mathematics, I worked as a Mortgage Broker. Working with real estate appraisers in the investment and mortgage businesses sparked my interest in becoming an appraiser.  For me, the appraisal practice is the perfect blend of analysis and real estate.

I moved to the Upstate from Northwest Iowa. I discovered this area while traveling cross country in my RV with my husband and our daughter. The endless outdoor recreational opportunities, family activities, and southern hospitality kept calling us back for vacations until we decided to make the Upstate our home in 2020. In my free time I enjoy bike rides, baking, and traveling.  My perfect day would include a motorcycle ride, ping pong, a lakeside campfire, and blueberry pancakes.
