Team Leader – Sales Representative
I bought my first house when I was 19 and was always interested in the Real Estate process. I was a volunteer firefighter for 7.5 years, started a construction company as that’s what I grew up around - my father and grandfather being in that field. I then became the Asset manager for Newbridge, after that - back to university and became a senior systems engineer for many high tech firms and unfortunately - the tech bubble burst. My next adventure was a senior project specialist and moved up to the Director of Change Management at Export Development Canada...
I always knew growing up that I wanted to have a profession that I could help people in one way or another. Switching careers from the construction industry to becoming a Realtor was more than a natural transition, as I always loved socializing with people and have always put a conscious effort into making people feel good. When I decided to make the career change, I continually would get the same response from everyone I told about my potential change to become a Realtor, which was “I would definitely hire you, I would trust you.” I heard this repeatedly.
I have lived in Ottawa since 1994, my wife Tracie and I moved from our hometown of Montreal to settle and raise a family. Fluently bilingual, I love to share my love for Ottawa with clients, particularly those who are new to the region. I love the size of Ottawa. It is big enough to have the amenities of a big city, restaurants and entertainment, but small enough that people are friendly and calm. You can be in a trendy downtown area one minute, and in the walking-hiking-biking trails of the Gatineau Hills in no time. The city has something to offer everyone.
I am the boss’s wife and mother of our two beautiful girls, Willow and Aspen. I have a diploma in Interior Design from Algonquin College and have had a career in the government doing office accommodations, facilities and project management involving space planning, office furniture acquisitions, small construction projects, employee moves of hundreds of people etc. for over 11 years. I had a role in implementing new workspace solutions for Treasury Board that reduced cost and space envelope that consolidated their 11 buildings to 2 (Workspace 2.0).
I was born and raised right here in the City of Ottawa, and my parents hail from St. Vincent & the Grenadines (a tiny island in the Caribbean) & Ethiopia. Growing up I breathed track and field (cross country, long jump and high jump) and was one of my school's top runners. I studied Biology and Chemistry and Algonquin College and also Dental Hygiene at the Canadian National Institute of Health. I worked in the Dental Field for 7 years and loved treatment coordinating and helping patients achieve their dream smiles. While I loved every aspect of the dental field, I knew in 2017 that it was time for a career change.
