My first trip to Sunday River was in 1991 as a ski racer for the Bates Winter Carnival. In 1996 I relocated and began working at Sunday River. Having worked in various departments including the Grand Summit Hotel, events and competition, and human resources, I have experienced the resort from many viewpoints. In December, 2005, I decided to join the Real Estate team. The best thing about Sunday River is the variety of each mountain’s terrain. A beginner can ski or ride on almost every area of the resort. Selling resort real estate allows me to meet people who have the same passion for the outdoor lifestyle as I do. I know the resort and the region so well that I can help each person find the right property in the perfect location for them.
My husband Dave and I, along with our sons Cameron and Ian, love living here. The region has so much to offer – hiking, biking, canoeing, fishing, golf, skiing, snowmobiling – something for everyone. We are an active family and take every opportunity we can to go road and mountain biking, telemark skiing and snowshoeing. On winter weekends, I enjoy educating the guests as a host on the RSN morning show.

Originally from Lewiston/Auburn, Maine, I have skied Sunday River since I was a kid. In 1982 I moved to Bethel to buy and restore The Sudbury Inn on Main St. During my first five years of ownership, I closed during the winters and skied.
My passion for the outdoors is satisfied year round with all this region has to offer including numerous lakes, the Androscoggin River, 2 golf courses and several state parks. The area is renowned for Gould Academy, University of Maine 4-H Camp, Western Maine Seniors College, and NTL. It is welcoming and unpretentious.
Selling real estate allows me to help families and individuals find a home where they really want to be. I love being a part of enhancing their lives and creating memories for generations.

My first trips to Sunday River were when I was 4 years old and learning to ski. Skiing as a family was a choice my parents made and one of the reasons we moved to Maine. I continued to ski at the resort and attended Gould Academy in Bethel. After college in NYC and my various travels I found myself drawn back to the mountains of Maine. The Western Maine region is endless in it has to offer. Combined with our lakes and rivers, it’s a landscape for all the outdoor activities I love. The community is a welcoming eclectic group of people, many of them migrating to the Bethel region to live the outdoor lifestyle. The resort is a melting pot of backgrounds and ages the common thread is the love for skiing and the outdoors. Sunday River guests come to this resort for the love of skiing and embracing the resort lifestyle. Our Sunday River skiers are loyal because of what the mountain offers them every weekend.
In 1997 I began working at the resort first in Groups Sales, then as manager of Conference Services at the Summit Hotel. When I began selling real estate in 2000 I found all my interests converge. My love for helping people, the area I love, skiing, outdoor activities and home design. The process of finding someone the perfect place is incredibly satisfying for me. My buyers are buying a lifestyle, a way to spend more time with their families, a romantic getaway, whatever the reason it’s an exciting time in their lives and I love to share that with them.
I have an almost-three-year-old daughter, Charlotte, who is just learning to ski. I am an active board member for the Mahoosuc Arts Council. In my free time I love to ski, snowshoe, x-c ski, hike, golf occasionally, entertain friends and family and spend time with Charlotte and taking our dog, Otis, out for walks.

Having grown up in Vermont, my first visit to Sunday River was as a skier in 1986. I joined the resort family as the Director of Communications in 2000, and five years later became a member of the Real Estate team. I’ve discovered that what makes Sunday River special is the dedicated and loyal team of employees who love the resort and pass their passion on to guests. Despite the popularity and growth of the resort, the region’s natural beauty remains pristine. The people who live here truly appreciate their surroundings.
Over the past couple of years, many of my clients have become friends and it is great to connect them with other Sunday River families. I know that they work hard, and owning at Sunday River is a well-deserved reward; they will have the opportunity to build many lasting memories here. My true passions include skiing, golfing and running along the river. Within the community, I am a member of three local boards - Mahoosuc Arts Council, the Bethel Area Chamber of Commerce, and Project Opportunity.

In 1993, my husband and I moved to Bethel. We loved being able to ski together at Sunday River, especially mid-week on our days off.
The Bethel and Newry region is a strong community filled with people who care about their surroundings. So many give back locally to make it the best it can be for both the people that live here and those who come to visit. Our area offers a full range of year round outdoor recreation, great restaurants, arts and culture. Bethel may be small but it packs a powerful punch! Sunday River features an extensive amount of terrain, incredible views and the feel of a small town community within a world-class resort.
Through selling real estate, I have been fortunate to connect with so many wonderful people who commit to our area because they appreciate all that it has to offer. It is rewarding to meet people and help them find their special property.
My husband, Kevin, daughter, Caroline, and I are lucky to live and work in an area that many people come to vacation. My free time is spent volunteering at the local elementary school, snowshoeing the trails behind my house, skiing, gardening, golfing, cooking, and, yes, socializing. I am also on the board for The Mahoosuc Kids Association.

Having spent my life in Maine, it may surprise people...
Having spent my life in Maine, it may surprise people that my first visit to Sunday River was in the early 80s, back when the mountain was “small”. After spending a number of years in the Portland area, my wife and I chose to move to the Western Maine region because at the time, Oxford County had just one traffic light. We enjoy the peace of the mountains. When we drive on Route 26 from the coast and we get the first glimpse of the mountains, my wife comments, “I’m home.”
In 2004, I began working with Sunday River Real Estate after years of selling residential real estate. Working with people who are buying a resort home is very rewarding, especially families who are buying their first vacation property. I enjoy helping people find a place that offers the same simplicity I was seeking in coming to this region. Customers are incredibly pleasurable to work with because most are coming by after a day on the slopes or playing a round of golf. Sunday River has an incredible passion for snowmaking and grooming – the mountain’s commitment to snow quality is one of the reasons guests choose this mountain as a place to buy a home.
