 Community Involvement and Personal

 

I am a wife and mother of three beautiful, talented, young adults. My Husband and I are very involved and believe strongly in education and in our youth. Our kids had attended a Local Charter School of which requires heavy parent participation. We now have 2 in college with our Eldest Son working with me now in Real Estate. We have served and participated in a wide range of ways from working in the class room, fund raising: like organizing a schools first Dinner Auction event in effort to raise money and save some of our schools programs, to working in clean up and building projects. I was a Parks and Recreation Commissioner for District 6 with the City of Watsonville. Currently I serve on an Oversight Committee that I helped form a few years ago in efforts to raise much needed monies for our local Police and Fire Departments which has to date successfully generated a few million for these most needed and appreciated services. I speak and participate in Local High School’s for both youth Leadership and life help situations as well as Career Days where I talk to youth about the exciting and gratifying profession of Real Estate. For me being a Realtor is helping people achieve the “American Dream” and realize their goals. I have also been known to organize, lead, and participate in private fund raising efforts as well as support local families, friends and community charities in their times of need. We both are also very involved in youth sports from coaching to sponsoring. We have both been very involved in with Church and the Christian Faith Community; I served on a Worship team, Lead a Mission trip to San Vicente Mexico, and participate in growth groups and various studies. My husband’s family has been in Watsonville for over 55 years. Through meeting and falling in love with my husband I choose to relocate my life from Huntington Beach California, to root, and raise my family in Santa Cruz County over 22 years ago.
