I fell in love with Bigfork when my husband Tom and I relocated here in 1987 to manage the sales and marketing efforts of the Eagle Bend Golf Community. We subsequently transitioned into the ownership and development of Trails West Real Estate. I have always believed in supporting this wonderful community by being involved in a variety of local organizations. In past years, I have served on the local School Board,Bigfork Playhouse Foundation Board, Chamber of Commerce and Bigfork CommunityDevelopment Board. Currently, I volunteer with Kalispell Regional Hospital Foundation Board and serve on the Board of Child Bridge, a local foster home and adoptive placement organization.I believe involvement is critical to enhance the integrity and increase the value of the real estate industry. I have served on the local Board of Realtors and the Board of the Montana Association of Realtors: as chairman and member of the Legislative committee, Political Action committee, Education committee andProfessional Standards committee. I was past President of the local Multiple Listing Service and taught the Ethics training class for all new agents. In 2014, I was awarded the Northwest Montana Association Realtor of the Year, an honorable distinction bestowed by my highly valued peers. Last, but certainly not least, I love the Flathead Valley! Naturally, that makes it a pleasure and a joy to market and sell your property. I get the daily opportunity to introduce prospective new residents to theincredible lifestyle that my husband and I so readily enjoy from our home on the Swan River. Although our two children have grown and left the nest, they can't wait to come home to Montana. Our daughter, Elli is making excellent use of her Business/Marketing degree in Portland, Oregon and our son, Casey is actively pursuing his acting career in New York City.
