I have been selling Real Estate since 2002 and have been adding value to clients homes for over fifteen years. I received my Bachelors degree with a double major in Interior Design and Clothing and Textiles and a minor in Visual Merchandising from Morehead State University. After years of Retail Management and Visual Merchandising experience, I thought it was time for something new. This endeavor spawned "The Plaid Rabbit", which is the current name for my design work today. Plaid Rabbit was a partnership for a time but now is a singular entity exclusive to me. After many years in the Design Business, both here and in the Chicago Area, design clients would ask me "if you ever see a house like this, let me know". Hearing this repeatedly inspired me to get a Real Estate License. I have since staged and redesigned the majority of my Real Estate listings. Most have found this a quick way to profitable sale. I have closed several deals and went on to furnish and redesign a space before clients move in. This has been a great combination of my love for designing to help finalize my Real Estate deals. I live in Michigan City with my husband Jeff and two very active children who go to school locally at Notre Dame. I have been with Merrion and Associates since 2002. In March 2014, Jeff and I purchased Merrion and Associates Realtors from Debbie Burke. We have a very family friendly environment and have been doing business in the Beach Community for years.
