As a 4th generation native of San Francisco and raised in the Sunset District, I have fond memories of walking with my parents to the local cafes, shops and grocery stores sprinkled along Irving St. After graduating from Lowell High School, I volunteered at the Academy of Sciences and worked at the Wells Fargo Bank located at 24th & Irving St. I am currently a Realtor with Paragon Real Estate Group. As a resident of the Inner Sunset neighborhood, I am honored to be able to provide professional real estate advice and guidance to new and experienced home buyers/sellers and investors. Being an active volunteer in the city of San Francisco, I have a passion and desire for giving back to the community. As a member of the ISMA Board, I will ensure that our community is looked after for the benefit of our neighbors. With all that the Inner Sunset community has to offer, it is important for business owners to know how they can be a part of our ever-changing community and how it will be improved for the next generations to come.
