Thank you for visiting my website. If you are looking for my real estate specific

My website may seem to be rather eclectic---catching a handful of my interests
and endeavors. My interests still go beyond what you see here.
I had the priviledge of serving Rapid City as the Ward 5 Alderman from July 2011
to July 2013. In case you aren't aware, Rapid City is second largest city in South
During my time on City Council, I made many changes that benefited the entire
City. As an example, I have made ordinance changes that requires all roads and
infrastructure to be built to specifications without cutting corners (click here to
learn why this is important and what it protects tax payers from). This ordinance is
good for the City and citizens. It protects our financial interests and improves the
life span of our roads that are built today---protecting our investments for the
future. It was passed unanimously. That is true leadership.
I supported keeping taxes lower and voted to reduce fees---including an 8%
reduction in garbage collection rates.
Rapid City provides an outstanding quality of life and provides many outdoor
activity options. If you are interested in relocating to Rapid City, please contact
me and I will gladly assist you with finding a home as I am a licensed Real Estate
Broker Associate for Coldwell Banker. I have received a customer service award
for my work in helping my clients. I can also assist you with bringing your business
to Rapid City as I also work in commercial real estate.
My diverse business background includes working in sales for a Fortune 500
company as well as nonprofit business leadership experience as the program
director of nonprofit brain injury rehabilitation center in Rapid City for 14 years. I
have a Master's Degree in Counseling. I have built websites and did marketing,
doing business as Emanon.
My creativity goes beyond marketing. I have worked as a freelance writer and
composed columns for the Rapid City Journal. I have written screenplays, poems,
songs, and part of a novel.
I am also a licensed professional counselor. As a licensed professional counselor
I received an award for my work with the homeless---and I worked to help get
people back on their feet. Many people are one bad break away from being
My primary focus in counseling has been in the field of brain injury where I worked
exclusively for nearly 15 years. Brain injury covers a lot of ground as many people
experience anxiety and depression along with their brain injury. I worked to create
treatment models and was able to present at conferences throughout the region,
including presenting at Mayo Clinic. Click here to see my curriculum vitae
(professional overview and experience in the counseling field).
I am also a current board member of The Humane Society of the Black Hills and a
board member of the Brain Injury Alliance of South Dakota. I am a member of the
Black Hills Association of Realtors, a member of the Black Hills Home Builders
Association and a member of the Black Hills Runners Club.
Running is one of my favorite outlets. In my teen years I was consistently able to
run a mile in under five minutes. As I slowed down with age I ran marathons (nine
full marathons). Yes, that's 26.2 miles. After 26 miles, those extra two tenths of a
mile make a difference!
