There's so much to see and do in Owatonna, Minnesota. It's a great place to live! Here are some of the great views around town.
I've been a real estate professional since 1996. I've thoroughly enjoyed meeting and working with so many families in and around the Owatonna community. I became a real estate broker in 1999, and along with two business partners we opened our first Coldwell Banker office in 2000. Since then, we have purchased two additional offices, one in Albert Lea, MN and the other in Northfield, MN. We've been so fortunate to be able to work with such dedicated and experienced professionals in each of our offices.
My husband and I have two children - the oldest is in college at Gustavus Adolphus, and the younger one is attending Owatonna High School. They both play hockey, and enjoy soccer, as well. We've been a hockey family since the youngest started skating at two. Unfortunately, the winter months are not my favorite, but I've learned to acclimate to the frozen rinks as I support my kids.
We've been in Owatonna since 1986. I can't believe how quickly 22 years can go by. This has been a great place to live, work, play, and raise a family, and I can certainly attest to the benefits that our community has to offer families who are just moving in to the area. I'm working on enjoying our plentiful parks throughout the year, not just in the warmer months. I recently started to snowshoe, and also enjoy walking on the trails and in the snow-covered woods. I also love to ride bike, but haven't attempted winter riding.
I'm currently involved in a variety of community organizations - the Steele County United Way Board, the Owatonna Ambassadors, and Big Brothers/Big Sisters. In the past I've served on several other boards, and participated as a volunteer in my church, and throughout the community. It's been a reward to meet so many people who are committed to making a positive difference in the lives of the people within our community.
I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor of Science degree and fom the University Wisconsin-LaCrosse, with a Master of Business Administration degree. I love to learn new things, and am attempting to learn to speak Spanish.

I work with buyers and sellers across all price ranges, and enjoy helping the first time buyer, as well as experienced, savvy sellers. I gauge my style according to their needs, wants, and expectations. I like to focus on what is most important to my clients.
I also enjoy helping clients through the process of new construction. I've built many spec houses, and have become very familiar with the area's builders. We're fortunate to have many solid and reputable builders to work with.
