In 1998, my family and I moved here from Switzerland to pursue dairy farming in Perth County. Growing up in the country set a precedent for me – I knew I could never live in a big city. The University of Guelph is what brought me to the Royal City in 2009. Being an agricultural “town” with the Ontario Veterinary College, various agricultural businesses and research facilities, OMAFRA, etc., it felt like home from the beginning. After four years, I graduated with honours from the Bachelor of Commerce program, having majored in Real Estate and Housing. The program exposed me to various facets of real estate, including property valuation and real estate finance, development, law and management. As well, it provided me with comprehensive business knowledge as it pertains to economics and accounting, valuable assets in this industry.
In 2011, prior to obtaining my real estate license, I began working as an administrative assistant for The RC Team. I quickly learned about the strong relationships that formed between John/Lorna and their clients, given their high standard of service, and felt that this career could possess an opportunity for success for me. Additionally, it would enable me to put my knowledge to work and give me credence within the industry. Thus, I obtained my license in October 2012.
I enjoy partaking in extra-curricular activities within the community. I was involved with Perpetual Motion sports for four years, playing beach volleyball during the summer, while continuing in a recreational league during the winter. I am a foodie and during my spare time I enjoy being active outdoors, working away at house projects or visiting my family and working on the home farm. I am fluent in Swiss German and am learning to speak Spanish, am a sub-mediocre salsa dancer and enjoy motorcycling. I volunteer at Immigrant Services Guelph-Wellington, the Guelph and District Association of Realtors and participate in charitable outings like the Big Bike for Heart and Stroke and Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowling for Kids’ Sake.
