I worked at Swedish Hospital for several years. As the health industry pushed nurses to more time on paperwork and less with patients, I started looking for a new career that would get me back to hands-on involvement in changing peoples' lives. My experience nursing meshed perfectly with the requirements for being a great real estate agent: patient, detailed, insightful - and most importantly - genuinely caring for my clients. I love being a real estate agent.
My first calling was nursing. From early on, I seemed to have a knack for knowing what to do when somebody was in physical or emotional pain and found it fulfilling. I became a nurse and midwife and spent time delivering babies and caring for preemies in the National Maternity Hospital, Dublin. From there, I travelled to a mission in Zimbabwe to fulfill my dream of helping sick children in Africa. With the dream of owning my own home - I spent 5 years nursing in Saudi Arabia, saving money (and spending quite a bit too!). When we weren't working at the hospital, we were off to the Philippines, Thailand, Hong Kong and more. I did buy my house in Ireland, but the travel bug was still biting which led me to America. I'm still awestruck by the beauty that surrounds me, the quality of life I experience in the Northwest and the warm hearted people I'm so lucky to meet.
I was born in County Wexford, Ireland, about two hours south of Dublin. I grew up on a small farm with my three older brothers - Little House on the Prairie 'Irish style!' My brother still runs the family farm, and you can always get craic (good fun) and a pint at the local pub!
