Show Notes

I’m the youngest of 4 daughters and I grew up in rural Pennsylvania.  Being the favorite child has given me an overabundance of confidence, which I use to my advantage quite often.  (My sisters will kill me for saying that, but only because it’s true. :)). I’ve always been an exuberantly tenacious person, setting stretch goals and moving on to the next one.


 

Looking back at my life I find certain experiences really stand out.  I spent my junior year of high school as a congressional Page, working and living in DC running errands for Congress.  It was a truly amazing experience and I’m sad the program doesn’t exist anymore.  (But the fiscally conservative side of me totally gets it.)

I went to WPI for mechanical engineering on an ROTC scholarship, where I met my husband and some of my amazing best friends.   When I graduated I became a US Naval Officer.  My dream was to be a pilot, but unfortunately my eyes disagreed; instead I served on an Aircraft Carrier.  It was a great consolation prize, and even though it was incredibly tough at times, I will treasure it.  

After about 4 years in the Navy, I got a job as an engineer working in the energy arena, helping to build a power plant to support aircraft carriers stationed in Japan, and then a bunch of other awesome projects.  I felt way out of my league and also incredibly excited to be a part of something so massively cool.  I worked with that company for 7 years, and again was fortunate to be around some seriously amazing people.

When my 3rd daughter was born, I decided to spend less time traveling and more time at home.  We bought our first rehab, which was a hoarder house that we essentially gutted, and I was hooked.  Making ugly things pretty is my favorite.  The first year I flipped 3 houses, the second year I flipped 6, and then I moved up to one a month and started building out a team to support that.  This year we’re on track to do 20+ flips and a few wholesales, as well as venturing into the rental arena.  

As an aside – It’s crazy that I always feel like the little fish because I keep moving to bigger ponds.  If you had told me 3 years ago where I would be now, I would not believe it.  But here I am, and it still doesn’t feel like “enough”!
