Luxury Outlook 2023
An ambitious exploration into high-end residential markets across the globe.
What is My Story?
At the age of measuring life in quarters, I spent my first quarter growing up in a small Alberta town outside of Medicine Hat. With an eye and talent for design, I pursued my dreams in Vancouver obtaining a Design Degree in Textiles. This led to a creative phase of art, fashion and interior design, done passionately and for a career in the design industry. My ambitions had me relocating to Montreal and Calgary, thereafter.
The second quarter, now with two kids now in tow (million dollar family with a son, Matt and daughter, Mykaela), I utilized my staging and house renovating experience to launch my real estate career. 23 years later, with a tenure at the top brokerages in Calgary and most notably, Sotheby’s International Realty Canada, I relocated to Kelowna in 2019. As a near empty nester(do they really ever leave?), I partnered with Justin O’Connor Group, which was well established in Kelowna at this time.
What Makes Me Unique?
My first hand experience with real estate investing, reinforced with industry recognized designations and achievements, provides our clients with confidence in our expertise. Complimentary to our clients, it is my passion to provide design and staging guidance in achieving the maximum aesthetic value out of one's home.
What Makes Me Smile?
It is with great honor and gratitude to be entrusted by many of the Okanagan’s most prominent and successful developers, builders and residents (and those aspiring to be one!) to make us arguably one of the most successful real estate teams in the region. When one of our clients refer us to a friend, there is no better compliment than that!

What Do Few People Know About Me?
Approaching my 40th Birthday, I wanted to be in the best shape of my life. I trained and competed in the Northern Alberta Bodybuilding Competition-Figure Class. I will arm wrestle for wine.
