    I'm a born and raised Californian. I've been loving Arizona for about a year now. One thing I love about Arizona is the welcoming car culture. Autocross, rallycross and track days are how I spend my days off. Rally racing has been a part of my life since I was 10 years old. Working for Subaru is a dream job of mine and I enjoy making car buying an easy experience for all of my customers.

    I am originally from the Northwest of Illinois. In 1999, my husband was transferred from his job to Gilbert and I began a new job in Peoria. We built a home in Surprise and began our family landscape business in 2002. I always knew we belonged in the Valley of the Sun. I am a huge sun lover and am thrilled to be in Arizona.
    My greatest treasure is my family. I have two teenage boys, Drew and Alex. Both of my boys are into sports and are amazing runners. My husband has been their coach for most of their lives. I adore Arizona and being able to raise my children here. I have been a part of the automotive world for two years and I enjoy every moment. I welcome you to come visit our dealership in Surprise and a warm hello from me.
