I love New Mexico and I love living in Placitas. My husband and I have raised our three children here in Placitas. I have asked my kids if they wish they had grown up elsewhere and they answer with a resounding “No”. They love it too. I graduated from the University of New Mexico (UNM) with a degree in Chemistry, minoring in biology. Starting out in the forensics field (very fascinating but too much indoors work). I moved on to environmental science, one of my passions. As environmental scientist with the New Mexico Environmental Department I learned the Placitas and Sandoval County landscape and environs like the back of my hand. Air, water and land management was much of my work; investigating land development impacts and monitoring human impacts on environment and health of the area. Environmental and public health regulations and investigations were part and partial of my responsibilities. My current hobbies include researching green building techniques and sustainable living practices, gardening, hiking with my husband, kids and Bella (my rescue pup), attending lots of New Mexico fiestas and cultural happenings (we have lots going on here in our rich culturally diverse state),fishing,reading and movies .
My Real Estate Profession
I began an early interest in residential real estate as a child. I was raised in a military family and had opportunities to live in many places. My mother and I would travel extensively while living in Europe and I took many trips with my parents to cities all over the world and always architecture, homes and neighborhoods were on our itineraries. One of my favorite things to do was walk through neighborhoods at dusk when I could see into people’s homes before they closed their windows for the night.
