Having always had a dream of owning a home on a lake, she searched NH & ME lakes & found Sebago & Frye Island in 1981. She felt there was no other place that could compare.

She ran the business of the café, store and ice cream shop along with her 2 daughters, for 17 years during summer months and sold real estate in York, Me during winter months. After selling the business she reactivated her real estate license and having always been an entrepreneur she started her own Company Sunset Lakes RE.
