I am a San Diego native.  I moved to Yuma, Arizona in 1998 with my husband, Scott.  I have a degree in Education and Spanish from the University of San Diego.  With our move to Yuma, I was first an elementary school teacher followed by a stay-at-home mom of three.  I have always been very passionate about our community.  I co-founded KIDS CuddleKit Closet to serve children in need of kindness.  As our kids became school age, I started back in the workforce in the non-profit and event world.  With my passion for Yuma and our agriculture industry, I took on the role of Marketing Director for the Yuma Visitors Bureau.  In 2011, I co-created Limelight Creative Group, a local, full-service marketing firm.  Since the inception of Limelight, our company has recieved many accolades, including the Governor's Award on Tourism and international recognition for campaigns we created for our clients.  In September of 2021, I became the Team Leader at Keller Williams Realty Yuma.   Also in September, we (a team of passionate Yumans) created the AdvoKate Foundation, a non-profit with a mission to raise awareness surrounding childhood cancer as well as to help those facing the fight of their lifetime and their families.  I am excited about being a QL instructor as my passion is teaching and helping others find their magic!
