I have been doing commercial estate for over 39 years! I have a BS in Finance from THE Ohio State University and am proud to hold Society of Industrial & Office Realtors (SIOR) and Certified Property Manager (CPM) designations. My favorite aspect of commercial real estate is customer service, where I am able to connect with passionate local business owners every day. When I’m not serving the community, I enjoy Buckeye football, yoga, skiing, golfing, and going to Clippers games!
I am a lifelong resident of Central Ohio; a graduate of THE Ohio State University with a BA in Economics. I became licensed in real estate in 1996 and have been involved in all facets of commercial real estate services including development, brokerage, property management and ownership of industrial, office and retail properties. I have served the Columbus Board of Realtors (CBR) as the Chair of the C/I Membership committee and elected member of the C/I Steering Committee which oversees all committees of the C/I Section. Ohio Association of Realtors (OAR); Committee Member of the C/I MLS CIE Exchange and CORPAC Fund Raising Committee. I also serve as a Trustee for the Mill Run Owners Association and three other property owner associations.
I have been working in commercial real estate for Mark F. Taggart Company for 9 years and have been a licensed Realtor in the State of Ohio and a member of the Columbus Realtors since 2009. I have a BA in Economics from Ohio State University. Currently, I serve on the Board of Directors for IREM Columbus (Institute of Real Estate Management) and am a member of CCIR (Columbus Commercial Industrial Investment Realtors). My favorite part of commercial real estate is the variety of businesses I get to work with. Our clients and tenants have all types of business uses and requirements making each day different and exciting. When I am not at the office, I am running with my dog Zeppelin or spending time outdoors with my husband and two kids.
I have been with MFTCO for 23 years and my favorite part about working here is that it’s a small company and they are flexible. Outside of work, I love gardening including taking care of my rose bushes, as well as fishing and walking my dog. I have been in the plumbing field since 1972 and was a plumbing engineer for 10 years.
I have been with Mark Taggart for one year, and in the administrative field for four years! I’m passionate about keeping our agents organized and streamlined so they can be more productive and successful. When I’m not helping our team, I enjoy the art of photography and being creative! There are so many wonderful places around the Columbus area to explore and photograph.
I have been with MFTCO for 4 months and enjoy the flexibility this company offers. Outside of work, I like working on RC cars and racing them around the track I built in my backyard. I also enjoy playing with my two dogs. Before coming to MFTCO, I have worked in landscaping for the past 8 years and in the Automotive industry for 4 years. I earned 2 Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certifications including a Brake certification and an HVAC certification.
