Professional Profile:

My appraisal career started in 2003 out of Saskatoon where I concentrated my work directly in that area until I achieved my AACI designation and worked throughout the province.

In 2014 my appraisal focus shifted to the secondary markets in Saskatchewan where I have based my work ever since. I have experience in real property appraisals and consulting services on a wide range of properties including agricultural, commercial, industrial, institutional, land development, single family, and multi-family properties throughout Saskatchewan. I have provided these services for a variety of purposes such as corporate planning, estate planning, litigation, mortgage placement, and municipal planning.

In addition, I specialize in expropriation valuation and consulting services for the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure. I have also gained experience in the residential investment market through the acquisition of a rental property.

Background:
I grew up in Dalmeny, Saskatchewan and then relocated to British Columbia where I finished high school.  After high school I returned to my prairie roots.  My family is involved in the agriculture industry and farms in the Dalmeny area. I am a proud mother of two sons.  My eldest son was diagnosed with Autism when he was 7 and I have been an advocate for Autism Services of Saskatoon since that time.  As a family we have run two successful fundraisers to help support the family programs of Autism Services of Saskatoon. I am a member of the Prairie Sky Chamber of Commerce, Canadian Association of Farmland Advisors (CAFA®) and of the Appraisal Institute of Canada (AIC) where I am proud to be part of our institute and the appraisal profession.
