Growing up in Carmel, Marie developed a deep love and appreciation for the place she feels fortunate to call home. Free time with her family was spent exploring the beaches, rivers, hiking trails and adventures the Monterey Peninsula has to offer. She cultivated her love for painting and drawing, attending Cal Poly San Luis Obispo to study fine arts. Carmel always felt like home and now she is raising her children there, finding joy in showing them the special places from her own childhood. Marie worked in the hospitality industry for 20 years, honing skills of customer service and management, before deciding to switch careers. Using her combined skills of organization, management, artistic eye, cultural and geographic knowledge of the area, Marie is excited to be involved in the field of real estate to help others find their home and happiness in this beautiful piece of California coast.
