The Mission For My Life Is...
The mission for my life is to help others discover opportunities to reach their highest potential by implementing my creativity through speaking, and teaching.
As a result of frequent moves throughout my childhood, I quickly developed a passion for the home search. Growing up, I spent most Sunday mornings perusing the Real Estate section of local newspapers, finalizing our open house itinerary for the weekend. After retiring from my career as a ballet dancer early, in search of a "more normal life", I began searching for other fulfillment. I survived a few years as and engineering student at the Unviersity of Florda before realizing I did not have the same passion for engineering as I did for ballet or real estate! I moved to Breckenridge, CO where I became an Associate Broker and worked for an elite agency in one of the "hottest" real estate resort towns in the country. After a short time honing my skills, I quickly moved my way up to office manager. The years spent practicing real estate outside of New York, has brought a much greater understanding of buyers who are relocating from other states, and how varied real estate practices can be. After receiving a proposal from my now-husband and Celebrate Your Home co-founder, Daniel Eckart, we relocated to his home town of Port Jefferson, New York, which we considered to be the ideal location for starting our family. I returned to school to finish my degree in Economics, graduating from Stony Brook University in 2006. I use my degree to stay on top of economic trends within the industry, and truly consider myself to be a local area market expert.
Currently, Dan and I reside in the village of Port Jefferson, with our two daughters Noelle Bridget. You may run into us enjoying our favorite family activity-walking the sidewalks, beaches, or parks!
Active in the community, I've served on the boards of the Port Jefferson Economic Development Committe, the Royal Educational Foundation and the Farmer's Market committe, and as a a business liason to CEO, a regionally based organization that redesigns, reinvents and fundamentally improves transition services in schools and the way individuals with special needs obtain and maintain their careers and employment. .
