I have been the Community Manager at Desert Horizon since August of 2012, and I have been in the property management business for 12 years. I have a Mass Communications and Marketing degree from Miami University in Ohio, but I am originally from Minnesota. I am a huge Viking’s fan, and I was a competitive swimmer for 15 years. I enjoy working with people and helping them find their new home, while delivering a wonderful living experience while they stay with us.

I am the Maintenance Supervisor at Desert Horizon, and I have been working in the business for 22 years. I have been living in Phoenix for the last 8 years, and I am originally for New York. My favorite past time is watching videos on You Tube and scaring the girls in the office with animals I find throughout our community. I love meeting new people, and I hope we can work together in the future.

I have worked at Desert Horizon for over a year, and I enjoy helping people find their new home. On my days off you will find me by a pool, and practicing my photography skills - by taking “selfies”. My favorite food is Spaghetti, and I like anything that is sparkly.

I grew up in Medford Oregon, and after graduating high school I attended the University of Hawaii. In 2009 I relocated to Portland Oregon, and shortly after that I moved to San Diego. In 2012 I found myself in Phoenix where I got my Real Estate license, and I now work in the leasing office at Desert Horizon. Besides moving, I enjoy anything outdoors, and being around my friends and family. I also love my two pets. Izzy is a rambunctious puppy, and Zeppelin is a sweet loopy eared rabbit.
