Hey! Thanks for stopping by to meet me and BeLocal Waxhaw and Weddington. I have always had a passion to help others. After getting my bachelor's degree in Marketing and Business management, I dedicated years to researching and studying the best ways to help locals connect and grow their business.

I am originally from Connecticut but have lived in California, Hawaii, Lake Wylie, Lake Norman, and south Charlotte. I know what it feels like to move to a new area and struggle to feel connected but more importantly knowing who to trust. There are so many decisions to make for our families and it's important to know the best services in the area.

That is where I come in! My team personally meets with every possible BeLocal partner. We always want to know why they are in their field and if they are a good fit for BeLocal. As a mom of three, I understand how important these "settling in" decisions are and I assure you everyone featured in BeLocal is the best of the best.

Welcome!
