REALTOR®/Team Manager, CRS
With the love and support of my wonderful husband, Jonathan, I have been a full-time REALTOR® for 13 years. I joined the team in 2010 and haven’t looked back. I am passionate about educating buyers and sellers on the Leigh Brown Experience and I feel that every transaction should receive the best service imaginable.
When I am not in the office I can be seen running around town or cooking up a good meal to distract me from our newly empty nest (it really is an adjustment). I am one of those elusive NC natives; the few and the proud!

Listing & Sales Coordinator
I was born and raised in the small town of China Grove, North Carolina; about 20 minutes outside of Concord, and have lived in the area my entire life. I started my real estate career with Leigh Brown almost 2 years ago as the Foreclosure Specialist and worked my way up to my current position as Transaction Coordinator. It is my goal to make sure that every transaction goes as smoothly as possible, and I strive to give every client the best service imaginable.
In my downtime, I enjoy singing in my church choir and spending time with my two beautiful little girls, Lyric Noel and Aria Grace.
Quality Control Manager / Special Events
Born and raised in the great state of New York, I never thought I would leave. But then, my parents moved South and my family and I quickly followed! I have enjoyed living in Charlotte since 2014. My avid interest in real estate is what enticed me to come work with Leigh Brown & Associates and I have thoroughly enjoyed being the Quality Control Manager & Event Coordinator for the team.
Exploring Charlotte with my family fills my free time, as does spending time teaching children at our church, cooking, and reading.
