Creative and high energy, I have 18 years of extensive and diverse experience spanning from luxury real estate development sales, marketing, and business development, project management and operations. Building and executing innovative, revenue-generating business plans and property developments is a passion of mine, and results and customer satisfaction drive me!

Born and raised in Newfoundland, Canada, into a large, salt of the earth family. At the age of 23 I started my real estate career in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. My early career comprised pre-construction, commercial, industrial, and residential sales. It also led heavily into the leasing and managing large volumes of portfolios, including working with a billion-dollar publicly traded company managing their entire portfolio in Halifax. While building my career, I grew my investment portfolio in rental properties and later purchased a 3500-square-foot spa and salon in Halifax, Nova Scotia. After acquiring the Spa & Salon, I proudly used my sales and management skills to lead a successful team. Over the years of owning the salon, I continued to provide business development and consultancy management for local businesses including a popular 5-star seafood restaurant, which remains a landmark in the community and continues its success today.

With a passion for travel, viniculture, and architecture, I have enjoyed traveling worldwide and have had many incredible opportunities to simultaneously experience different commercial developments, waterfront projects, subdivisions, and luxury residential areas.

In 2016, I vacationed in the Cayman Islands to attend the annual Cayman Cookout and absolutely fell in love with the Island and the lifestyle offered. I am so thankful that I have found my way from one Island to another (warmer) Island and excitingly moved to Grand Cayman in 2018. I have since made the Cayman Islands my home and enjoy investing my time in the community as a volunteer with many local charities and an advisor at Junior Achievement for Teens.

After moving to Grand Cayman, I held a successful position with Heritage Holdings Group of Companies to shape and execute high-impact portfolio strategy for a large volume high-end, luxury, industrial, and commercial Real Estate portfolio. Leasing and selling assets to high-net-worth clients. Leverage a deep understanding of Cayman Real Estate market, anti-money laundering laws, building codes, constructions costs, and procurement and strata formulations to drive streamlined operations. Lead strategic marketing management, business development, and sales/leasing operations, propelling growth and revenue improvement through keen business insights and marketing vision. Project manage complex initiatives, liaising with property owners, architects, and crew to ensure alignment with established timelines and demands.

I have worked to gain a generous amount of local real estate market knowledge and expertise. I am proud and passionate about working with the international brand and team of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices here in the Cayman Islands.

If you require any assistance in your investment here in the paradise of Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, or Little Cayman whether searching for your dream home, listing your property for sale, needing a rental, or even looking for the perfect office space, please reach out for a quality and knowledgeable experience. I look forward to working with you and finding your slice of heaven!
