About Me

I am excited about assisting you in selling your house or finding your new dream home. Are you ready to start today?

I am certainly not a typical real estate agent. I was born in the Czech Republic and was raised in Canada. Upon completing my PhD in Biology at the University of Waterloo, I moved to Maryland to pursue a career in biomedical research at the National Cancer Institute. After 24 rewarding years studying cancer progression and raising two amazing sons, I moved to Louisiana with my husband where I have decided to reinvent myself as a real estate agent, something I have been interested in for years. I chose GARDNER REALTORS because their local boutique style fits well with my belief that people are unique individuals, each with their own set of needs and concerns especially when it comes to their property or home.

During my career as a scientist, I acquired the necessary negotiating skills, perseverance, patience and resourcefulness to make me a top quality real estate agent. Today, I am actively working with clients selling their properties or guiding them to find new homes and loving every minute of it. I find great joy in meeting new people and helping them pursue their dreams! 

I have always been a strong advocate of community service and I’m especially passionate about the future of our children. In Maryland, I promoted young people in sports, scouting, education and faith as team administrator for football and lacrosse, den leader, chartered organization representative, high school PTSA vice president, committee chair for student recognition programs, religious education teacher and youth ministry chair. In Baton Rouge, I continue to find ways to serve those in my community. I joined the Newcomers group that supports cancer patients at Mary Bird Perkins and local children in foster care. With Gardner REALTORS I have had the opportunity to help flood victims in 2016 and to contribute to a backpack drive and through my church I assist with lunches for local children at summer camp. Most recently, I have had the privilege to feed the women and children at the St. Agnes shelter each month with my Baton Rouge Gardner Realtors family!

I am proud to be a REALTOR with GARDNER REALTORS, the largest and most successful local (non-franchised) real estate company in Louisiana and Mississippi. For over 70 years GARDNER has been home grown, locally owned and internationally known. This means that our clients receive the personal attention of a small company while at the same time having access to world-class marketing and resources through our worldwide invitation only network, Leading Real Estate Companies of the World.  

I am a REALTOR, a member of the Greater Baton Rouge Association of REALTORS. A REALTOR is a member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION of REALTORS, which subscribes to a strict Code of Ethics. These codes include: Loyalty to clients; Fiduciary (legal) duty to clients; Cooperation with competitors; Truthfulness in statements and advertising; and non-interference in exclusive relationships that other REALTORS® have with their clients.
