Hi, Welcome!

I am so excited that you are here. I trust that you will quickly see that I am NOT your average realtor.

An Occupational Therapist by trade, and quickly turned mega agent, my mission is to create massive opportunities for ALL people, through real estate, despite ANY barriers.

I am obsessed with the relationship between the built environment, and our health and wellbeing. While some call it nerdy, I call it passion.

Hang out with me to learn about universal design, aging-in-place, and all things real estate related.

Have FOMO and don’t want to miss any juicy education on these things!? Join my email list, and I promise not to spam ya’.

Cheers,

K
