I have had the pleasure of being a part of the Nations Direct Title Agency family since 2012. Working with our clients and homeowners has been thoroughly rewarding for me and I look forward to continuing my career with NDT for many years to come. I attended Daytona Beach State College and am a licensed title agent in the State of Florida. When I am not working, I enjoy going on adventures with my daughter to local amusement parks and festivals in Central Florida. My hobbies include reading, fiber art, and listening to my daughter talk about Youtube.
