Over the years, I’ve been honored to receive awards and accolades in the real estate industry.  With recognition comes hard work, long hours and a constant drive to go above and beyond for my clients. The number one motivator that stand out above all else is the passion for the work. The world of real estate is not without its challenges, but there are also so many wonderful things about the industry, if you keep your eyes open, the opportunities are endless.

Why I Love Lake Travis

Lake Travis, Texas, holds a special place in my heart as my hometown, where I have not only cherished childhood memories but continue to create new ones as I raise my own family here. The community exudes a unique and welcoming vibe that reflects the essence of a supportive and caring environment.
Growing up in Lake Travis has provided me with a deep sense of connection to the community and a strong foundation rooted in the warmth of Texan hospitality. The memories of my formative years are interwoven with the picturesque surroundings, creating a tapestry of experiences that have shaped my identity. Now, as I navigate the journey of parenthood, I am grateful to offer my family the same enriching backdrop that Lake Travis generously provides.

The natural beauty of the area, with the pristine waters of Lake Travis and the surrounding hills, adds an enchanting touch to everyday life. It’s not just a geographical location; it’s a haven of beauty nestled in the scenic landscapes of Texas. I love calling Lake Travis my home!

My Commitment To The Community

My commitment to Lake Travis goes beyond real estate. I’ve witnessed the growth, embraced the sense of camaraderie, and felt the pulse of the supportive community. That’s why I founded A Kind Hart Foundation, a non-profit organization aimed at providing relief for families and Lake Travis students in need. Through this foundation, I’ve been able to contribute to the well-being of the community by supporting local nonprofits and initiatives. It’s my way of giving back to the place that has given me so much.

In addition to A Kind Hart Foundation, I recently launched The Hart of Lake Travis. This platform allows me to showcase the incredible people, businesses, and nonprofit organizations that contribute to making Lake Travis the exceptional community it is. It’s about celebrating the heartbeat of this place, the people, and the stories that make Lake Travis truly special.

Beyond my personal initiatives, I’ve been actively involved in various community organizations, including serving on the Community Advisory Board for LRMC and as the past President of the Lakeway Police Foundation. Volunteering with organizations like Keller Williams Cares, TexARTS, Dell Children’s Hospital Circle of Friends, Lake Travis ISD, The Rotary Club, Lakeway Police Foundation, and the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society has allowed me to contribute to causes close to my heart.

Being a part of Lake Travis isn’t just about living here; it’s about investing in the community, building connections, and working together to create a place we can all be proud to call home.

Founding My Non-Profits

If you had asked me a few years ago, what would elevate my career goals, I would have said that starting my own non-profit and actively contributing to the community were aspirations close to my heart. Fast forward to today, having founded both A Kind Hart Foundation and The Hart of Lake Travis, I find immense joy in the impact we’ve made and the lives we’ve touched.

Now, with these non-profits in full swing, my wish is for both organizations to grow organically, reaching and helping even more people in meaningful ways. The joy derived from my family, friends, and a fulfilling career is already profound. Being able to contribute as a philanthropist, realizing dreams of making a positive difference, completes the circle of leading a truly joyful life.

In 2023, one of the most significant impacts I’ve made is through raising and donating thousands of dollars to local Lake Travis organizations. A standout moment was the joyous experience of hand-delivering a $17,000 check from A Kind Hart Foundation to the Cav Lounge at LTHS. Walking down the familiar halls of my alma mater to surprise the dedicated staff with a substantial sum that will genuinely change lives was incredibly meaningful. Alongside my Kind Hart Foundation board members, we also hand-delivered a $12,100 check to Lake Crisis Ministries, just to name a few.

Through The Hart of Lake Travis, I’ve had the privilege of reaching thousands of Lake Travis residents. In intimate conversations with business owners and fellow philanthropists, I’ve provided a unique behind-the-scenes view of the shops, restaurants, and businesses that form the heart of our community. It’s a platform that uncovers the heartfelt dedication of individuals, showcasing the amazing people who make Lake Travis a truly special place to call home.

Words To Live By

As a realtor, a mom, a wife, and a philanthropist, Maya Angelou’s quote, “I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back,” resonates with me on a profound level. In my real estate career, I’ve worked hard to achieve success, but I’ve also come to understand the importance of giving back to the community that has shaped me.

As a mom and a wife, this quote reflects my commitment to instilling values of kindness, compassion, and generosity in my family. It reminds me that life is about more than personal achievements; it’s about creating a positive impact in the lives of others. Just as I’ve received support and opportunities along my journey, I feel a deep responsibility to contribute to the well-being of my community.

In my role as a philanthropist, the quote serves as a guiding principle. It encourages me to actively engage in acts of service and philanthropy, ensuring that I’m not just a passive recipient of blessings but an active participant in uplifting those around me. This philosophy shapes my goals for the future, inspiring me to make a positive impact in the community where I live and work.
