My whole life I have tended to "go against the grain." I started a business at 18 and paid my way through college, debt-free. I have taught myself two computer programming languages, the ins & outs of the ecommerce business hierarchy, and how to short-term and long-term invest in the stock market. After high school I attended the University of Washington with a goal to pursue a PhD in mathematics--concurrently working as a marketing and administrative assistant to a real estate team. It is there I realized two things: a traditional degree will not help me achieve my goals, and I was capable of achieving so much more within real estate.
I am passionate about growth, and I believe to my core that knowledge is power. The more knowledge and experience I have increases the amount of value I am able to offer each client. This is why I listen to podcast, watch documentaries, and read books in my free time--as well as go to the gym and play soccer!
