Local Real Estate Expertise with a Global Reach: Engel & Völkers


Although I was born and raised in Indiana, Louisiana has been home to me for nearly forty-five years. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Indiana State University, where I became a lifetime member of Sigma Kappa Sorority. Upon graduation, I moved to Louisiana and attended graduate school at Louisiana State University. Shortly thereafter, I obtained a Master’s Degree in Supervision and a Specialist Degree in Administration. I retired after nearly thirty-five years as an educator and middle school disciplinarian.

My hobbies and interests include playing classical music on the piano, traveling, and spoiling my 3.2 pound Yorkie. Over the last few years, I have planned ten galas for Kiwanis International of LAMISSTENN, Inter-Civic Council of Greater Baton Rouge, and Altrusa International. I also enjoy interior decorating, as there always seems to be a project going on in my home.

After retiring from the education arena, I became a real estate professional. Shortly thereafter, I was named the “Rookie of the Year”. I have served and/or chaired eleven committees for the Greater Baton Rouge Association of Realtors. In addition, I received the “Rising Star Award” from the Greater Baton Rouge Association of Realtors at their installation and awards luncheon. In 2016 I was nominated for “Humanitarian of the Year”.

I have been a member of The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing since 2009.

I have served as a Red Stick Kiwanis Board Member, President-Elect, President, and I was named Kiwanian of the Year, as well as Kiwanian of the Decade. I am currently Lieutenant Governor-Elect for District 8E. I have been extremely proud to have been a part of this organization, and I am honored to be associated with these men and women. I am also President-Elect of the Inter-Civic Council of Greater Baton Rouge.
