Licensed in both NC and SC, I began my real estate career in 2000. Prior to that, I was a high school teacher, elementary school principal, college English professor, and co-founder of Brevard Academy, a NC Public Charter School. During the eighties, I lived in Freeport, Grand Bahama, where I wrote historical romances, romantic suspense, and mainstream novels (Jolene Prewit-Parker). I am a native Carolinian and currently live in Tega Cay with my husband Chuck and yellow lab Tess. I absolutely love being a realtor* and navigating folks through the sometimes confusing maze of home buying and selling. My many years of experience give me invaluable insight into ways of circumventing potential problems before they occur. I am totally committed to my clients and always put their well being above my own as I strive to obtain for them the absolute best price and terms with minimal stress and anxiety. To that end, I personally remain in control of the transaction from start to finish…from house hunting to contract to close. I never relinquish that responsibility to an assistant. I am with you step by step throughout the buying or selling process, and I am unrelenting in my pursuit of the best ways in which I may serve you. I take my responsibility seriously. I will never let you down, and you will never be asked to settle for anything less than 100% from me. I take enormous pride in my commitment to excellence in my profession and have served on the Professional Standards Committee and the Grievance Board for the Charlotte Regional Realtors* Association. For nearly two decades, I have been one of Helen Adams Realty’s premier agents. In my free time, I enjoy playing tennis, horseback riding, beach walking, and growing orchids.
