Though born and raised in the Bay Area, I grew up spending
Christmases on the Big Island so when my husband’s job in hotel management gave
us the opportunity to move here in early 2014, it was an easy decision. Now,
I’m grateful to call the Big Island my home and to raise my family here. The
warmth, authenticity, and spirit of this place are like no other.
After graduating from Wheaton College in Massachusetts, I
completed a Fulbright fellowship in Iceland before returning to the Bay Area to
begin my career in PR for global technology companies. Prior to joining
MacArthur Sotheby’s International Realty, I spent nearly 10 years in the world
of executive recruiting, working with one of the world’s most prestigious
search firms Russell Reynolds Associates, and later leading my own consultancy.
In both of these positions, I focused specifically on c-level executive (i.e.
CEO, COO, CFO) and board of directors’ recruitment across multiple industry
sectors, including Fortune 50 companies. Working with sophisticated clients and
candidates to bring my searches to a successful close has taught me to ask the
right questions, really listen to understand my clients’ needs, creatively
problem solve, and negotiate tirelessly for my clients -- all of which serve as
the foundation for my work in real estate.
In my free time, I enjoy yoga, gardening, and spending time
with my husband and three children. I’m also active in my kids’ schools as well
as with our local non-profit community. I look forward to speaking with you to
learn how we can make your Big Island dream a reality!
