What do you do to relax when you’re stressed? I walk when I am stressed.

If you could have lunch with a well-known figure (living or not), who would it be and why? Princess Diana. As a young girl I admired her sophistication and gentleness and her ability to engage a crowd. Although she had wealth, she still had a desire to help and love the people.

What do you love most about the industry? It is forever changing. Every day is a new day and no two transactions are alike.

What has been your greatest accomplishment? First, I am a mother of 4 boys and 1 girl. Next, my team is no. 3 in the country and no. 3 in the world with RE/MAX. At an early age, I had my first two of four boys. No college education and all the odds against me. I beat the odds and today I am able to provide for my family.
